The Best of Miista Street Style: Favourite Shots of 2016
With the 2016 (almost) behind us, the new season is coming into focus.
OK, 2016 may have been the worst year yet, but it was positively transformative time for women's fashion. Bless our street fashion!
Without it, what are we left with if not: death, Trump and Brexit?
I may be exaggerating (errrm, I'm not) but street style for the Fashion world is what Oscars are for the Hollywood. Though we'll be more inclusive while picking our personal favourites from the Miista archives.
Let's take a trip down memory lane through the evolution of London and Paris street style in 2016. All captured by MIISTA team member: photographer Alice Zielasko.
