If Street Style Were a Thing Right Now, These 7 Trends Would Rule It

If it were any other year, we’d be sitting down to discuss the major street style moments of the last season and make predictions about what the fashion crowd will don at the next lineup of shows. Obviously, this isn’t just any other year and with continued travel restrictions rendering in-person runway shows obsolete, the typical street style scene just isn’t really a thing anymore (if at all).

She’s known for her playful approach to fashion, shifting effortlessly from a vampy screen siren on the red carpet to a more casual, Californian bohemianism for her day-to-day looks.

It is true, I admit, that it is not my style, which is monotone, severe, yet occasionally reckless, ideally with
