When it comes to fashion, the rules get broken and reinvented on a daily bases, and who better than the street-style darlings to keep us up-to-date and fully inspired for when it comes to dressing like the ultimate it-girl? Although style is very personal, very individual, we could all benefit from some fresh tips in striving to make our outfits stand out for all the right reasons. Below, 11 genius tricks we’ve learned from the darlings of the street style world.

Trust that your over-the-knee boots do work with a pair of skinny jeans. Mixing prints can be made into both a fun and an easy task if you learn to colour coordinate.
