Smartgirl Street style • Chunky Sneakers

In case you haven’t noticed, chunky sneakers are cool. In fact, they have been for a while. Shattering paving slabs at fashion weeks across the globe – GQ, Vogue, Elle and The Cut have all written extensively about the resurgence of the chunky-soled sneaker. As Vogue Italia described them, chunky sneakers (sometimes referred to as “dad sneakers”) are usually hefty and feature double or triple soles. Instagram influencers and celebrities alike simply can not get enough of their chunky-soled kicks. Just a few minutes spent scrolling through social media feeds reveal photo after photo of  Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian and Hailey Baldwin rocking clunky sneaks that look like they…

Smartgirl Street Style • Twinning in Adidas

Introducing Twinning – The Street Style Trend For Two Every season it’s something new. Some hot-ticket item no style blogger or editor worth her Gucci Princetown slippers will be seen at fashion week without. A few years ago it was a Kenzo sweatshirt; shortly after, a Chanel Lego purse. Then came the fluffy Fendi bag charms. Don’t let the ‘it’ item’s ubiquity in street style galleries fool you – such pieces typically carry a hefty price tag only the Chiara Ferragnis and Anna Dello Russos of the world can afford. Until now. This year, the ultimate street style bait is…

Jeani Meyer - Smartgirl street style • The graffiti parka

Pull a Kate Moss and rock a Parka It’s not like it’s ever really been out of style, but this season the humble parka has become the fashion pack’s main squeeze, lending it’s warm embrace to celebrities and street-style stars alike. Seen at Vetements, Sacai, Etro, Tommy Hilfiger, Saint Laurent and Coach, 2017’s on-trend version of the parka is oversized (naturally), heavy-duty, and brilliantly functional. The parka has long been code for cool, but its real glam era came when Kate Moss wore one, pants-less, on the cover i-D. Shot by Craig McDean, Moss stood, back to the camera and…

Smartgirl Street Style • The Stan Smith Sneaker

The shoe is the Stan Smith. A white-leather number with pale green accents introduced in 1971, the year before Stan Smith (the player, now 70) earned his second and last Tennis Grand Slam singles title. Thanks to a well-orchestrated promotional blitz, this unlikely hero has made one of the greatest comebacks in marketing history. Recently hailed as one of the most important sneakers in the world, the legendary Adidas Stan Smith sneaker has SERIOUS street cred. We’ve been seeing these shoes everywhere over the last few months. Celebs, streetstyle blogs, fashion shows, you name it. Stan Smiths are the sneaker to be wearing…

Smartguy Street Style • How to style Greenery

Greenery – nature’s neutral. Every year the world’s authority on color, Pantone, announce the Colour of the Year. Often an indication of what’s to come in everything from fashion to tech and home ware, 2017’s colour of the year, Greenery, reflects the ongoing and highly popular “go-green” movement – think healthy eating, environmental awareness and reconnecting with nature. Greenery was seen everywhere on the 2017 runways with designers from Gucci, Balenciaga, Pucci, Sies Marjan, Michael Kors, Kenzo and Zac Posen all creating clothes in what Pantone calls “nature’s neutral.” “There’s a Japanese concept called ‘forest bathing,’ which says that when you…
