One of my favorite websites is by far Street Peeper. The reason? It’s basically like a collection of constantly updated photos literally taken on the streets in some of the most popular style-driven cities around the globe. You get to experience the raw style of fashion lovers like yourself who are trendy, fashion-forward, innovative, well put together, or even eccentric enough to catch the attention of those strolling around with a camera in hand and a hunger for fashionable inspiration in their hearts. I don’t think that there’s anything that beats some insight into what others are wearing halfway around the world. As I’ve always been told, some of the greatest fashion and trends derive from the streets and set a tone for the rest of the industry. It’s undoubtedly true.
I was really intrigued by this outfit that was peeped in Tokyo. Let’s be real – there’s a lot going on with this outfit. I get it. However, how can you not love and respect someone who takes such great strides to be courageous in their style choices? Bold red and black is mixed together to create this intense look. In the U.S., horizontal and diagonal stripes are a big trend. You don’t typically see vertical stripes as being really popular but the wide stripes on this blazer that run from top to bottom definitely embody something we’re not used to seeing as much. For most people, they’d stop at the blazer and say that it’s enough, making the rest of their outfit solid and plain so that nothing in the look competes with one another. All rules are out the window and gone with the wind with this example. Not only is she sporting a crazy adorable tulle skirt, she has printed red leggings on. Finally, it couldn’t get any better than the pop of color (as if red isn’t enough of a “pop!”) that she has in her purple handbag. What’s the lesson learned here? Be bold.
