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…

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…

Smartgirl Street Style • Pink

Smartgirl Street Style • Pink • Tiffany Pienaar

2017 Is the Year to rethink Pink You can never have too much pink in your closet, and rose-colored everything has been HUGE news in 2017. It started with the New York Fashion Week Spring 2017 collections at the end of last year, when we noticed the hue was an ongoing trend among designers, and in London, the popular shade made a number of runway appearances, as well. By the time fashion week arrived in Milan, Alessandro Michele’s latest collection for Gucci took place within an all-pink-everything boudoir, from the set’s carpet and ottomans to the hazy lighting.   Finally, in Paris, the rosy…

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…

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…
