European Street Style! How to Copy the Casual Fall Look

European-Style-fashion-fitness

Trying to fit in is never easy, but when it comes to ‘style,’ I don’t mind following trends. When I moved from California to Switzerland with my Samsonite stuffed with neon tanks and floral peplum tops, I stuck out like a sore thumb. It’s all about wearing black here. While I retired my neon, each winter I attempt to update my ‘chic European look.’ Lately, I noticed ‘fitting in’ isn’t so difficult. In fact, European street style is actually quite comfy.

When I noticed a group of teens literally all wearing what I call ‘European Casual,’ I decided to copy their look from head to toe (minus the cigarettes of course). Here’s how to create a casual fall look inspired by what I’ve seen on the streets in Zurich, Switzerland…

Street Style – I had to snap this pic when I noticed I was walking behind Euro Barbie & Ken. She had an ultra-sleek pony tail with a simple black jacket, cropped black pants and yep – casual sneakers. He wore fitted jeans (European men do not seem to wear baggy jeans) and a jacket with dirty-blond hair that literally looked like a Ken doll.

Sidenote As I was writing this post, I caught up with Daily Mail and saw pics of Kendall Jenner a couple days before her night on the catwalk for the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. I would definitely say both of her looks in New York are perfect casual styles I’ve been seeing this Fall in Europe. Not really sure what’s going on with the sleeves of her sweatshirt layered under her black leather jacket? Not a fan.

Back in Switzerland – This is a look for all ages. A few weeks ago, I noticed this mom and her teenage daughter. The mom was in black skinny jeans and Nike work out shoes.

The Key to Casual – This was the group of teenagers I mentioned before near Starbucks in Zug, Switzerland. The group of girls and guy (on the very left) all wore skinny jeans, rolled up a bit, while rocking Adidas Superstar & Stan Smith sneakers.

What-to-Wear-to-Europe-Fall

What to Wear – Europe is all about being understated. I never see hot pink Nikes – I’d say 90%  are black or grey. They mainly wear skinny jeans (cuffed) with any dark or neutral top and jacket. Then you’re ready for the cobblestone streets of Europe this fall.

  2. I love this post. I have never been to Europe but I am currently saving up for an extended vacation in Europe next year.

  3. I like that they prefer neutrals over color! So classic, yet still modern. I wish the baggy trend would leave from here. Pants were definitely made TO FIT! LOL

  4. This is something I have tried to emulate too! Europeans have the black look down and it’s so chic. When I visit I feel the need to hide all my carnival clothes that look like I’m going to Miami..Lol. I can always spot them here too, as they have the best walking shoes or coolest tennis shoes and jackets that fit just so.. Sigh. You look darling and I love you bun too. By the way, I sometimes take covert photos of cool people and their are always cute couples in Europe that look like they match!x Kim

  5. looks very nice!,l really want to have a try!
