You probably also have tons of other shirts, pants, dresses and fun extras—but for most girls, it’s hard to take a bunch of individual components of a well-stocked closet and turn it into an awesome wardrobe. The key is to build an entire look around a few key pieces. Have a clear picture of what some of your “building block” pieces are, and it’s easy to add a few extras and mix and match to always rock an outfit that’s pretty interesting, stylish and uniquely you.

From the chic inspiration of the Shang Style Spectrum Fashion Show, we were able to come up with a few tips on how to look your best in street smart chic. Check this out!

Every girl needs a gorgeous, knee-grazing feminine dress made from a delicate fabric like lace, tulle, silk, or a combination of textures.

Utility jackets are urban, trendy, and have just the right amount of edge to bring heat to an otherwise simple outfit. You don’t have to find one that’s strictly “waterproof” to reap a utility jacket’s ability to guard you from natural elements. This throwback item has made a huge return to mainstream fashion over the last few years. Denim vests are such a good investment too. It’s an easy thing that throw on over almost any outfit to immediately boost your style.

When it comes to building a trendy wardrobe, a trusty woven or flannel button-down is an excellent place to start. I love plaid button-downs because you can style them to look western, grungy, hipster-esque, or even laid-back California cool.

Graphic t-shirts are awesome conversation pieces. Find ones with funny phrases, retro logos, or those that reference a band or sports team that you love. Nothing can replace a classic little black dress, but a chic black maxi dress is nearly as versatile. When shopping, look for a basic design that stays comfortable for several hours, and isn’t too revealing to wear most places.

A light and soft chambray button-down top is one of the most valuable things you can have in your closet. It practically works with everything — and I do mean EVERYTHING — in your closet. earring hats and some hair accessories can be a bit…scary. It takes a girl with some serious fashion kahunas to have the confidence to rock things like urban turbans, bowler hats, and couture baseball caps!

Wearing hats maybe a bit scary for a newbie, But once you break past that barrier, wearing head accessories is almost addictive.

A simple, preppy long-sleeve (or 3/4 length sleeve) striped shirt is an easy and inexpensive way to add class and a bit of New England elegance to your wardrobe. I love that you can dress these up to look sophisticated and preppy or grunge it down to look urban and hip.

Lastly, adding a few well-placed pieces of jewelry is often all you need make an outfit look complete. The awesome part about jewelry is that there are so many different styles, sizes, colors, and pieces. You’ll have a wide array of items to pick from when determining your signature piece!
