Slowly but surely, more and more young men and women are showing off their street style on a weekly basis, if not daily, in our very own city. And this stylish crowd is inspired by other famous or popular street style icons from all over the world. There is plenty to be said about how harmful social media can be, but it can also play to a very positive note. The various platforms have become a hub for those who wish to express their personality through fashion. Instagram, being the main source of exceptional style, is a better place to gander rather than keeping your eye strictly on the runways of Europe and North America.
There’s only so much you can take from the catwalk and high-end labels, but you’d be surprised to know the more established designers of the world also look to the streets for inspiration. The beautiful thing about personal style on apps like Instagram and Tumblr is you have a countless amount of attractive fashion sense, only unique to each account. In addition to be inspired and analysing each individual’s characteristics, you can take away proper style tips by following them on a regular basis.
Street style evolution
Style, believe it or not, has no actual boundaries; there are no limits. You can grow up not knowing a single idea about fashion to wearing what others are wearing just to fit in with the crowd. Once you are matured and well-versed in fashion and style, the latter becomes easier to understand. Individualism kicks in, and you’re putting together outfits that perfectly represents you. You’ll find yourself either with a constant, uniform look or versatile one from day to day. No matter which trend is thrown into menswear, there is no doubt you’ll find yourself a signature look by the end of it all.
Outside the box
What you will see quite frequently on the Instagram fashion scene is how well these stylish men like to experiment and change up their wardrobe. One day, it could be all about denim on denim. The next, it’s all about patterns on prints. The idea here to is find your comfort zone first, then start to shake things up, be experimental. You’ll see yourself going from a basic t-shirt and jeans, which is equally stylish, to wearing a three-piece wool suit. Once the familiarity starts to set in, you’ll even be likely do dabble into fusion – West meets South Asian aesthetics. But it all comes down to how you present yourself and if you have properly combined each item in your look.
Just do you
Remember, no matter what celebrities are wearing or what trends are hot outside of our own continent, your individual style matters most. And that is more than clear on the very stylish Instagrammers you should be following. You can easily be influenced by a more athletic appeal or a minimalistic approach by minimalmudassir on Instagram. You can’t get more obvious than that. But it’s not just about the younger generation, style will never discriminate; definitely not an ageist. This means you can still be in your 40s yet are still free to put your personal spin on fashion.
There will be occasions that require a certain dress code, but your personal style will be used as the foundation to your overall look. In other words, apart from formal events, keep your personal style as flexible as possible. You may never know what you’ll want to try on next.
