Stylish City: vintage denim, summer leather and 70s style

The summer of 2010 was a showcase of retro looks  and saw the return of minimal chic and feminine elegance.

Faded, bleached denim was one of the biggest trends this summer and not only in the practical form of denim shorts but also jackets, shirts and dresses. Looks so fresh when paired with romantic ruffles and simple hairstyle.

Summer leather: vintage, distressed, shiny, studded, colored, supple leather tailored as vests, shorts, skirts and not only was also a wardrobe staple for summer 2010.

Minimal chic: not a trend by itself but the return of understated elegance for summer in the  style of a feminine blouse paired with tailored shorts/trousers in neutral colors was a fresh breeze among the busy clothes of the season.

Stylish pjs: it looks like they are here to stay, ever since Stella McCartney introduced them to the fashion world back in 2008, breezy harem pants, wide leg shorts and overalls in floral and paisley print are just a great option for hot summer days.

I love the 70s vibe coming from these stylish girls which is quite easy to get with a pair of flared trousers or an A-line skirt, a puffed sleeve or rolled sleeve shirt, platforms, a single strap structured handbag and middle part hairstyles.

A big thanks to the best street style blogs out there especially Caroline's Mode that started with pictures of Stockholm street fashion and became a style guide of the most fashionable cities, along with Face Hunter, Garance Dore and The Sartorialist.

Other pictures belong to Stylites (Beijing), Style Arena (Tokyo), Look At Me (Moscow) and Copenhagen Street Style.
