Six months into this pandemic there are many, many things we have come to miss. A lot. Like traveling the world, visiting grandparents and being really drunk in huge crowds at 4 am. On top of this, I’ve also had serious street style withdrawals. The world has been in lock down and fashion weeks have gone digital. In an effort to still this hunger for pictures of cute strangers on the street I’ve spent better parts of my weekend browsing catalogs of last year’s street style. This has made me come to a revolutionary conclusion: Non-fashion fashion accessories are the best. Here are a few.

Dogs, obviously. This came as no surprise to me ofc as I am a frequent user of the doggo-ccessory. I don’t know about you, but I like my outfit to make me feel good. And it often does. This accessory, however, makes others feel good too. Ppl will flock around you, trust me. It also lends an opportunity to put accessories on your accessory. All dogs love a good outfit. No, that was a lie. But, if your/your sister’s/your step cousin’s/your friends brother’s dog loves a sequin top – I say go for it.

Drinks

While dogs are newcomers to street style, drinks have been around the block so to speak. Whenever I think if drinks + cute outfits, I think of the Olsen twins. I’d say they were the pioneers of the take-away coffee mug. Ten years ago, Mary-Kate and Ashley made us think a hot beverage in-hand is way cooler than an actual it-bag. However, there has been a change of power. Coffee is kind of last season. And after extensive research I have discovered it’s not matcha or green juice that’s trending on the streets these days. It’s good ol’ water ladies and gentlemen.

A good friendship never goes out of style. This sounds very much like something Diane von Fürstenberg would say, lol. Well, it’s true. If you want your outfit to pop – add a bff accessory. Matching outfits: optional.
