Random Style: How to Emulate Your Favorite “Street Style” without looking CRAY

Random Style Random Style: How to Emulate Your Favorite Street Style without looking CRAY

If you’ve ever witnessed Street Style first hand, I’m sure it’s an image that sticks out in your collection of fashion memories. Street style is very hit or miss. You can either pull it off or you can’t – however I do have a lot of respect for anyone who has the courage to try it.

Growing up near New York City, I have been cultured by the visions of street style on many occasions. When I first started noticing the trend, I didn’t understand. I wondered what these people were thinking before they valiantly stepped out of the house. Then it started to grow on me and I came to realize that there was a right and wrong way to it. Here are a couple basic tips to master the art of street style the RIGHT way.

1) Think like a kid:
I was thinking about what it is that attracts people to street style so much and came to the conclusion that it’s the creativity and juxtaposition of style that goes into it. Remember when you were little and played dress up? Consider that mixing of random clothing pieces and accessories your first experimentation with street style. With that said, when you’re putting together an outfit don’t overthink it – think like a kid. If you overthink, you may not get that organic result you’re looking for. Unlike a perfectly matched outfit out of a GAP ad, street style adds mystery and a sense of youthfulness to different garments that would be boring if worn alone.

2) Consult a friend:
You may already do this, but before you walk out the door, take a picture of yourself and send it to a truthful, fashion forward friend. It’s good to get another opinion from a different perspective – especially if they are trustworthy. Plus, if they are your TRUE friends they will definitely let you know if your outfit makes you look like you belong in the circus, and tell you if that shit “cray”.

3) When in doubt, take it off:
If you have any doubts that something is just TOO overbearing, DO take it off. Chances are if you’re on the fence about it, it’s not going to MAKE your outfit. Remember; trust your gut.

Accessories, Emergent Design, Expat Style, Eye Spy, London | Designer Spotlight: SD Yohans

elle sd yohans | Designer Spotlight: SD Yohans

Move over, Brian Atwood. Watch your back, Alejandro Ingelmo. There’s a new kid in town—and her shoes tread the same sexy, sky-high terrain as fashion’s rising footwear stars.

Based in London, SD Yohans is the namesake collection designed by up-and-comer Selam Yohans. After a few years in the banking industry, Yohans did an about-face and got her Master’s in shoe design at the London College of Fashion. She worked at the Italian footwear company Pitti Capital in Florence and collaborated with UK brands Churches and Dotty Shoes before launching her own line of feminine, uber-luxe kicks in 2012.

“I was exposed to the bespoke making of footwear from a young age,” Yohans tells “I grew up watching my father make shoes for men, women and children. I was always fascinated by the different textures of leather and suede—and I loved the smell of leather stacked up on the shelves of my father’s workshop.”

Fast forward 20 years, and the designer has her own workshop in London stocked with fine Italian leathers and skins, where she crafts her seriously sexy pony skin pumps, peep-toe stilettos, and architectural ankle boots, all of which feature her signature curvy high heel. Add to the mix patent ballet flats with peek-a-boo cut-outs, vertiginous platforms, two-tone shoe-ties and over-the-knee leather and suede boots and you’ve got a well-rounded collection designed to appeal to a wide range of tastes.

“I create shoes for strong, confident women,” said Yohans, who showed her Fall 2013 collection (inspired by André Dubreuil’s iconic furniture design) during Paris Fashion Week earlier this month. “The silhouettes are curvaceous and shapely, echoing the female hourglass form. Each shoe is crafted to make women feel romantic, empowered and sexy.”

Mission accomplished.

The SD Yohans collection starts at $445 and is available at Independent Boutique in the UK, Carnet De Mode in France, and online by special order at SD Yohans. Originally Featured on

Katy Perry in Christian Louboutin Panettone Bag

Kate Perry Christina Louboutin Handbag Katy Perry in Christian Louboutin Panettone Bag

When you’re constantly jet setting from city to city, attending presidential inaugurations one day and performing in a completely different continent the next, it’s easy to get swept up in the stress and forget you actually need to look good. Luckily for our eyes, Katy Perry doesn’t usually forget. The songstress, who we’re guessing was jetting home from a romantic and highly publicized weekend of canoodling with John Mayer in DC (and attending the Presidential Inauguration), arrived home in Los Angeles looking chic and put together. Ladies and gentlemen, when flying, the best way to insure you look good is head to toe black. Even though it might look a little somber, black is slimming so who cares. And Katy’s got that all black look down to a T. Black pants, black shirt, black coat, black boots, and gray hat. Yes, I said head to toe black but sometime a girl just needs a little gray.

But what really caught our eye wasn’t her funeral-ready but still chic outfit—it was her handbag. Christian Louboutin has been on point lately with his stylized and studded handbags, shoes, and accessories, so it’s no wonder that Katy was proudly carrying his Panettone handbag from the Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Even though the description for this item says it’s a small black studded satchel bag, it most definitely is not. Large enough to fit all the essentials, from make-up to tablet (Louboutin clad as well, of course) to phone to wallet, this handbag is perfect not only for days spent on planes but also days spent frantically running around trying to get errands done. The spikes give it an 90s grunge-esque edge, making it the perfect way to either tone down an over the top outfit or add a little pizzazz to a plain old jeans and tee outfit.
