9 Fashion Trends That Wouldn't Exist without Street Style Blogs ...


Street style blogs are an interesting platform for documenting trends.

Once a trend pops up on a street style blog, it tends to go viral.

The thing with trends that appear on street style blogs is that they seem much more relatable than those on the runways.

They make us think “hey, I could totally pull that off” despite the fact we’re not fashion editors with access to the latest designer gear or off-duty models who always seem to have a certain level of ‘cool’ about them.

Take a look at these fashion trends that probably wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for street style blogs.

1. Shoulder Robing

Shoulder Robing

One thing we often see on street style blogs is people wearing their jackets draped over their shoulders, instead of putting their arms in the sleeves.

The reason?

Fashion, probably.

Unless you’re standing directly outside a fashion show, this doesn’t seem to be a look that you would regularly see on the streets.

Probably because for most people it just seems the slightest bit impractical.

2. Half-Tucked Shirts

Half-Tucked Shirts

Before street style blogs, if I had seemed someone with half of their shirt tucked in and the other half hanging out I would have just assumed that they had been in a rush to get out of the house.

But the half tuck is a popular choice for fashionistas styling their outfits.

It’s a deliberate choice that adds an artfully disheveled touch to an outfit.

3. Wedge Sneakers

Wedge Sneakers

If it weren’t for fashion editors and bloggers being snapped wearing them, wedge sneakers probably wouldn’t have been as popular as they were.2

On paper, wedge sneakers don’t seem to make a lot of sense.2

Why would you add a heel to sneakers?

But it was all about the sport luxe trend and Isabel Marant definitely started something with her signature wedge sneakers.

Before long it seemed like every other brand was jumping on the wedge sneaker bandwagon.
