10 Best Dressed Celebrities of 2016: Street Style Edition

Now that 2017 is here, we can take a look at 2016 from a safe distant and confidently say the fashion world wasn’t the only one that saw its fair share of highs and lows.

When it came to street style, we saw a surplus of statement-making music merch, off-the-shoulder everything, vintage fit denim, and slip dresses. Even Google noticed the booming bomber jacket craze. Obviously, celebrities paved the way for a number of these trends.

And because anybody can look good with hours in the makeup chair and a stylist on hand for a red carpet appearance, but it takes actual effort and a sense of style to pull yourself together on any average day walking down the street, these stars were the definition of street style inspo for 2016.
