Ode to Gwen Stefani - How to Amp up your Street Style

After buying a pair of pumped up Nike kicks with neon laces, I realized that my "street style" needed some cred. I can do work appropriate glam with the best of 'em, but I've always struggled with the more casual ensembles. Hence, I'm usually (seemingly) overdressed and while I love heels and pencil skirts, I like the comfort of hoodies and boyfriend jeans, just as much as the average college kid. So, what does a 28 (almost 29 year old) woman add to her closet to look good (not slouchy) with a pair of Chucks, Nikes, wellies, or riding boots for the weekend in colder temps? Let's take a cue from Ms. L.A.M.B herself - Gwen Stefani. 

A striped, slouchy cardigan
Boyfriend jeans, cuffed (of course)
Plaid cabby hat

Cat-eye sunglasses
Aztec print sweater
Motorcycle jacket
Gray zip-up hoodie
Neutral printed scarf
Perforated leather belt
Wool sweater coat
Black leggings
Off the shoulder rocker tee
Bright cross-body bag
Skinny (slightly) tattered jeans
Bright silk scarf
Baggy chinos

Aviators
Animal print oversize sweater
Sweatshirt tunic
Plaid blazer
Bright lipstick
Now all you need is a rocker hubby, two adorable kiddos, and maybe those amazing abs and platinum blonde hair, to get as many "oohs and aahs" that this singer/designer receives!
