It seems nowadays, part of the fun of attending fashion shows and fashion events in general is the anxious feeling of possibly getting street styled and ending up on some famous blog or better yet, a style magazine.
It’s hard to say what these fashion bloggers are looking for and us fashionistas often go home without being photographed, par for the course it would seem.
That being said, we’d figured out the 5 essential things that always end up in street style event photo albums. We’re confident that if you hit a few of these things, you won’t go home metaphorically empty handed. Trends don’t matter anymore, it’s all about catching the eye of the infamous cameraman.
Here is our list:
01. Bold Colours
Yes, we know, most fashion industry professionals prefer to hide behind black, which won’t often get you photographed. If you’re wearing bold reds, yellows, oranges, or blues, not only will you get noticed a lot more by other people, but you’ll be noticed by street style photographers. It’s a sure fire way to get in!
02. Exciting and Different Accessories
This one is a little tricky. Those department store accessories aren’t going to cut it, you have to find originals. Scour the internet for compelling and eye-catching bags, sunglasses, hats and jewellery. If your findings are the statements of your outfit, you’re on the right track, if you pair them with crazy looking clothes, even better. You’re sure to end up on the front page of something.
03. Extreme Layering
Ever thought about leaving the house wearing everything you’ve ever owned? Now is the time. Every layer you add, you’re increasing your chances of being street style. Don’t worry about the weather and just keep piling stuff on.
04. Textured Pieces
3D movies are so hot right now, the trend was bound to cross over into other fields. 2 dimensional clothing isn’t enough to land a street style photo anymore, you need pieces that are in 3D, overly textured, eye-catching, mind-confusing garments that will make people look you over twice.
05. The Attitude
This is probably the most important thing on this list. Street style photographers know that we’re all DYING to be photographed, but the trick is not to let them see the desperation in our eyes. There’s two ways to play it, either you act cool and laugh and joke with your friends, trying not to pay any attention to that guy walking around with a camera, or you go with the RBF (resting bitch face) and pretend you are entirely unphased by all the commotion and that you could care less if you get snapped or not.
