Amsterdam Street Fashion Contest – UK Residents, Style Yourself and Win!

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m excited to announce the first contest of its kind on – a chance for our UK readers and bloggers to win a 4-star minibreak in Amsterdam for 2 (accommodation + flights), a shopping fund of £150 to spend when you get there, and a cocktail experience at the House of Bols cocktail bar!  (UK Residents, 18 and over)

The competition starts with street fashion, specifically, your best attempt at dressing like some of the stylish Dutch people. To help you get some ideas, I’ve dressed up myself and had a great time picking out items based on my favorite Dutch members of the Street Fashion Group.

My Amsterdam Street Fashion Style:

I noticed that I saw a lot of women in street fashion from Amsterdam wearing tights and leggings, with anything from dresses to long tees, so I went for solid black tights – then of course boots are always in style, in Amsterdam particularly, so I went with some thrifted black Frys boots.

A lot of women’s street style in Amsterdam is pretty feminine, dresses, scarves, tights etc, so in staying true with that I decided on a lightly colored baby-doll dress with black cats and black bows, and I choose to go a little rocker with a faux leather cropped moto jacket in coral pink – with matching pink to red gradient hair.

Most of my favorite Amsterdam Street Fashion photos have a little euro-rocker edge to them and creatively dyed hair.
