Harper’s Bazaar counts down for us, some of the hottest spring street styles. The runways and magazines are great places to turn for fashion inspiration, but sometimes the best inspiration comes from taking a closer look at what people are wearing on the street. We all see how our favorite items look on hangers in the store, but it’s truly inspirational when you get to see them paired with other hot items by people on the street.
The first street-trend in the Harper’s Bazaar article I’d like to focus on has already exploded in the market with colorful designs and cool platforms. I predict the sport sneakers trend is here to stay for a while with fresh and even-cooler styles.
I believe sporty-sneakers are in for a long rotation because, who doesn’t love a trend that is stylish, comfortable, and practical all at the same time?! Best of all, you can dress them up or dress them down depending on what you wear with them. Want to wear a skirt? No problem! Your funky sneakers will make your look chic and stylish, just like in the picture featured below.
The next thing we’ve learned from the street is, overalls are awesome! Light blue denim, dark blue denim, leather; they can all be used to make a stylish pair of overalls. Whether you like the typical overall pants or overalls as a dress, this trend is not only hot and heavy on the streets, it’s also filling up the racks in all our favorite stores. If you like this trend, check out these slightly distressed overalls from Zara.
Another trend on the street is the shirt-dress. The button down shirt dress is so versatile because you can wear it on it’s own, wear it with tights, put a cute belt around it to dress it up, or throw a sweater over top for extra warmth.
Style.com features some of the hottest shirt-dress ensembles, like the one in the featured image. Throw on some high heels and a hobo bag with your white shirt-dress and everyone will turn heads as you’re crossing the street.
So the next time you’re rummaging through a fashion magazine or surfing the Internet for the hottest trends, head to the city and walk outside. Some of the hottest trends are filling up our streets.

This week’s outfit of the week goes to a look created on the Living_in_aShoe blog. The outfit combines neutral greys and blacks to create a sophisticated and feminine street style look. She features a long sleeve light grey sweater paired with a short pleated grey skirt. The large rectangular black handbag looks stunning worn on her arm with the strap hanging below. The tights make the look perfect for a chilly winter day. The black sandals lengthen the look of her legs and fit perfectly into the whole neutral ensemble. Last but not least, add a dash of color to the look by throwing on some red lipstick. Check out the image below to see how you can achieve a similar look.
