Every year we see new trends come into play when it comes to streetwear style. It’s your most wearable clothing, the pieces from your wardrobe that are most likely to be selected as part of your daily outfit. So, because you’re wearing these items so regularly, it’s important that they’re always bang on trend. Here’s a look at some of the most popular streetwear trends for her this year:
Neon is a fashion trend that doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Primarily worn at festivals and on summer holidays, neon green, pink and orange have become hugely popular when it comes to women’s style. The best way to wear this trend for your streetwear style is have a flash of the fluorescent and not make it a dominant colour – which can be tricky. Stick to neon as an accessory or wear neutral coloured clothing with your statement piece.

Cycling shorts began trending last spring, but they’re still on trend for this year. Many designers like Chanel, Fendi and Acne included cycling shorts as part of their summer collections. This will undoubtedly trickle down into the high street shops where you’ll be able to grab a similar pair for a fraction of the price. Pair cycling shorts with an oversized hoodie and boots for a dressed-down look, or team with a silk blouse and heels for a classy outfit.
Athleisure is like the parent category for trends like cycling shorts, leggings and tracksuits. Athletic leisure wear has completely taken over street style, so it’s no wonder that it’s a must for this year too. The key to keeping this trend classy and sophisticated is to choose more luxurious fabrics like silk, cashmere or cotton and steer away from over-doing it with the brand logos.

This soft, subtle trend is perfect for the summer months. All-beige outfits look expensive but are surprisingly easy to re-create with affordable brands. From girls designer dresses to flared trousers, gentle colours like oatmeal, biscuit and blush are all becoming increasingly popular (even for your daughter!). You should mix textures and silhouettes to keep it fresh and playful.
Take your accessory style up a notch with some colourful, patterned headbands. Streetstyle doesn’t all need to be about athleisure and cool tracksuits, it can be fun and stylish, even when it comes down to your choice of accessory. Headbands aren’t just for kids anymore; adults can wear them seamlessly and sophisticatedly with the right outfit to match.
Animal print has been enjoying a revival of sorts after years of neglect. It seems now that everywhere you look women are wearing leopard print dresses or accessorising with zebra print handbags. What’s more, people have started to experiment with the style with tiger stripes and snake print taking over the streets in recent months. You can even team up two trends with neon animal print clothes, which have been making their way from the catwalk to high-street stores.
