How to Pull Off an Effortless European Street Style
Effortless. Easy to wear. Elegant. Comfortable. Classy. These are all terms that can be used to describe what is known as the European Street Style today. It is a fashion vibe visitors and residents alike use as their go-to look when heading out for a busy day.
The style is the epitome of blending high fashion sensibility with comfort. It is put together with pieces that can be worn all day and look — and feel — as good at hour 12 as it did when you first stepped out the door.
All of this can also be used to describe Anatomie’s brand sensibility. Easy to wear clothing that doesn’t wrinkle, always looks good, and is comfortable for traveling, business meetings and everything in between. But just having a few great pieces isn’t enough.
