Chicago’s got street style in spades
If you’re like us, you spend a lot of time on the Internet. Sometimes it’s because you have to, but sometimes it’s because there’s really nothing better to do. Especially when it’s cold outside. One of our favorite guilty pleasures is checking out the many Street Style blogs that capture the essence of Chicago’s sidewalk vibe.
Sometimes we look at style blogs for other cities, like San Francisco, Dallas, and New York, and we’ve got to say – Chicagoans have got their fashion funk on. People here are just so personal in the way they wear their clothes. It’s hard to describe but what we’re getting at is that the people in our favorite Chicago style blogs aren’t just wearing their clothes – they are LIVING them.
Want to see for yourself? Check out:
Chicago Street Style by Amy Creyer – A legit young photographer who not only has a good eye for candid style but also knows all the players in the Chicago fashion industry. Creyer has an impressive resume away from her own blog and has had her photos featured in the New York Times, on Refinery29, and on NBC. Brands who understand viral social media marketing are even hiring her to help them with launches and word-of-mouth campaigns. Sounds like a pretty good life.
Chicago Looks - What we like about Chicago Looks is that they don’t just give you a single shot of a subject, which many street style blogs do. Instead, they give you three or four shots – so you can really see what the person is wearing, get a close up of their bag, scarf, shoes or other accessories, and decide for yourself if it’s a look you might want to seek out. Plus, the subjects they choose are just plain interesting, cute, and sexy. Very Chicago.
Tres Awesome - Tres Awesome’s blogger Emma is an art director at Leo Burnett, so she gets a gold star for her photography. We don’t always like her subject choices as much as we like the hotties on Chicago Looks or the celebs on Chicago Street Style, but still worth checking out nonetheless.
Kudos to all these bloggers for pursuing their passions for fashion and photography – and for simply having the courage to walk up to someone on the street and ask: “Can I take your picture?” That’s not easy in this day and age.
