How to Look Good With Retro Street Wear Style Any Season
The most important thing to remember this season in urban style is retro chic.Â This can be applied from daily wear right through to clubbing gear.Â For winter 2010/11 the on-trend look for street wear is a little more grown up.Â Sharp lines are combining with the classic baggy street look to show off figures and create a more streamline, ultra-modern look.
Effortless Modern Style
Retro street wear is ideal for creating a very polished modern style.Â There is something very timeless about retro street wear and it never seems to go out of fashion. If you pull this style together well you can look both trendy and casual at the same time.Â This can actually be a difficult look to achieve and the key is simplicity. Layer complimentary colours selectively and keep patterns limited to one or two elements of your clothing (for example patterned t-shirt or trousers not both).
