Downtown Girl Wardrobe Essentials
Downtown Girl Clothes
When summer comes, you will be desperate to wear a tank top. Plus, it looks great when you pair a tank top with a zip-up hoodie or a leather jacket, and it can be a bit chicer and sexier than wearing a T-shirt. (They are all downtown girl wardrobe essentials, which I will discuss later.) And guess what? We don’t really need a fancy tank top for downtown girl outfits. A basic tank top is good enough.
Do you have a favorite band or singer? If so, a graphic t-shirt related to your favorite band or singer can be the best t-shirt for your downtown girl outfit!
You can also try to find a graphic tee about music (record player, music instrument such as guitar) or any vintage graphic tee that is cool and artistic.
In addition, basic raglan tops are popular too. Whether the raglan top is short-sleeved or long-sleeved, with or without a graphic, they all suit downtown girl outfits.
Hoodie or Zip-up Hoodie
It’s quite common to see people wearing hoodies in a big city. Maybe that’s one of the reasons that hoodies have such strong street vibes. Hoodies and zip-up hoodies are both great fashion items for the downtown girl aesthetic. Everybody has their choice, but if you’re hesitating about which one to choose, I suggest getting a zip-up hoodie. Because you can wear it like a normal hoodie, pair it with a tank top or t-shirt, which is three different looks!
Sweaters are perfect for a relaxed day. You can wear an oversized striped sweater, which is downtown girls’ favorite sweater, and go to a record store, bookstore, or a café to enjoy your city life. Whether you pair it with a mini skirt or jeans, you will be a cute downtown girl!
To make your downtown girl look a bit girlier, simply switch your pants to a mini skirt! I put “Mini Skirt” on this downtown girl wardrobe essentials list because downtown girl outfits with mini skirts are more common. But if you want to try with a midi or maxi skirt, it’s no problem as long as you can embody the downtown girl aesthetic!
Jeans are absolutely a no-brainer. You can pair them with any item in this post to achieve a stylish downtown girl look. I noticed that most “downtown girls” wear wide-leg jeans, baggy jeans, and bootcut jeans instead of skinny jeans. Oh, and low-rise jeans too! If you want to be a fashionable downtown girl like them, just go for what they wear! In summer, you can replace jeans with denim shorts or a denim mini skirt. It will be such a cute downtown girl outfit!
Cargo Pants or Skirt
Just like hoodies, cargo pants and skirts are very suitable for casual outfits and street fashion. Having a pair of wide-leg or baggy cargo pants and a cargo skirt in the closet can help you diversify your outfits. They perfectly match with other downtown girl wardrobe essentials, and somehow, they look so cute in my eyes. When you choose one, I highly recommend these colors: military green, khaki, dark gray, dark brown, and beige.
I really feel leather jackets take downtown girl outfits to another level. Even if you wear a common t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers, you will look like a fashionista when you wear a leather jacket on top of them. (And don’t forget your confidence!)
Any type of leather jacket is fine as long as you like it and matches well with your other clothes. If you need a tip, I’ll suggest choosing an oversized leather jacket since it is trending among “downtown girls”!
Downtown Girl Accessories
Canvas Tote Bag
Canvas tote bags are awesome daily bags. They are affordable and have decent capacity. (I used to carry two canvas tote bags for grocery shopping.) Sometimes, I put my laptop into my canvas tote bag and bring it to a coffee shop to work. Doesn’t it sound like a downtown girl’s life? And you know what? The best thing is you can show your own individuality through the print on the bag!
To be honest, I am not a big fan of messenger bags. But I have to say, this type of bag is incredibly suitable for downtown girl outfits! They are nice bags to wear when you dress down or explore a city.
Canvas tote bags are suitable for those who prefer shoulder bags, while messenger bags are ideal for crossbody bag lovers. In addition, canvas tote bags don’t have many color options because most are beige. But you can choose a messenger bag with any color, which can be an accent to your outfit.
Headphones or Wired Earbuds
To “downtown girls”, headphones are not only devices for listening to music but also fashionable accessories. If you don’t have headphones yet, I think this is a great chance to enjoy high-quality music and downtown girl aesthetic fashion at once, especially if you are truly fond of music like typical “downtown girls”!
If you think headphones are too heavy or inconvenient to carry, you can consider wired earbuds as well. They are nice accessories to complement downtown girl outfits too! (I recommend wired earbuds because they are more noticeable than wireless earbuds.)
Besides headphones, there aren’t many iconic accessories or hairstyle options for downtown girl outfits. But if you do want to change your downtown girl look a little bit, I recommend styling your hair with a claw clip. It’s so convenient and perfect for a casual look that I think it’s undoubtedly a go-to choice for a busy downtown girl.
Sheer Black Tights
Pairing a mini skirt with sheer black tights can create a color-coordinated look, especially if your overall outfit is in dark tones. Plus, it will add a touch of chic to your look. I’ve seen several “downtown girls” wearing like that. It gave me the impression that they have great taste in fashion.
I think Converse sneakers are one of the best sneakers to walk around the city. They are comfortable, stylish, and work well with any casual outfit! Black Converse sneakers are the most classic ones for downtown girl outfits. But you can wear a pair of Converse sneakers with the color that you like for a distinctive look. If Converse sneakers are not your favorite, alternatively, I recommend wearing Vans sneakers because they have similar vibes.
Dr. Martens Boots
It was not a surprise to me that “downtown girls” like to wear Dr. Martens Boots (or similar boots). A lot of downtown girls are into fashion, and Dr. Martens Boots are one of the most famous and classic boots in the fashion world! If you’re unfamiliar with this type of boots or have never tried wearing them, this might be a good chance for you to try something new!
By the way, when you get tired of Dr. Martens Boots, you can occasionally wear knee-high boots for a fresh look. I saw some downtown girl outfits with knee-high boots and they look gorgeous!
Those are the best downtown girl wardrobe essentials that I want to recommend to you. Besides, many other fashion items have the potential to be on this downtown girl wardrobe essentials list, such as shoulder bags, belts, scarves, and knee-high boots. Finally, I hope this post inspires you to create your own downtown girl wardrobe!
