Chic On The Street: Sleek & Severe In Taipei

We like how Fang’s sleek and severe look is reflected in her demeanor. We might have suggested a belt for anyone else in this getup, but it would be wrong to alter Fang’s dramatic statement. This 28-year-old manages Bodymap, a Taiwanese clothing line with stores all over Taipei. All her clothes are from there.

Chic On The Street: Classic Black And White

Audrey Hepburn-inspired outfits never get old with us. Just get a load of Sasha Peters, 22, looking very much the updated classic in L.A.’s SIlver Lake neighborhood. Sasha, currently working at Kiki de Montparnasse and studying Shakespeare, channels “Roman Holiday” in head-to-toe vintage from stores in L.A. and New York. The matching hot red nail…

Chic On The Street: Pulled-Together Punk

We peeped Paige Cano, 19, on Venice Beach and loved the combo of don’t-give-a-damn grunge paired with pretty hair. Paige is rocking a T-shirt from a Dystopia show with thrift store jeans and pumps “borrowed from a friend.”…

Chic On The Street: Thrifty Lady

We find Angelica Martinez perfect for this Venice Beach setting—a tough chick with a happy flair for color. And she got everything from “either the thrift store or the 99-cent store.” She also laughed and added that the shades were found in a bar. Finders, keepers!

Chic On The Street: Lovely Layers

We couldn’t help but notice sleek yet punchy Akiko Kishimoto, 29, behind the counter at an authentically Japanese restaurant in Cusco, Peru. Love that layering, and that punchy tartan pattern on her tights. This Tokyo transplant says the entire ensemble is from vintage stores, bought in Tokyo two years ago.

Chic On The Street: “Gossip Girl” Gone Nice

We think we’ve found the kinder, gentler Jenny Humphrey in Singapore. And just to clarify—we approve. Samantha See (no relation), 21, was spotted on Orchard Road in Singapore in a military-inspired shirt dress from Kuala Lumpur, accidentally yet symmetrically ripped black tights and the coolest rain sandals ever. xoxo, The Frisky…

Chic On The Street: Sailor Stripes

We spied Maria Stanley queuing for coffee at Intellgentsia in L.A.’s Silver Lake hood. Since we kinda want to copy her stripey and effortlessly chic thing, we had to ask this fashion designer where she got her outfit. Maria, 22, got her top at Urban Outfitters, sandals from Marc Jacobs, shades from H&M, and the…

Chic On The Street: Less Is More

Less is so totally more, especially when we see a luxe version of wardrobe basics worn well. So we snapped a pic of pretty Mariana Tolosa, 20, who was on break nearby her sales job at Épica boutique in Palermo Soho. Her off-white top and jeans are from Épica; her sandals are courtesy of Paruolo

Chic On The Street: Pretty In (Hot) Pink

We like the tough and femme vibe Gisselle Rousseau, a Chilean language teacher, has got going on. Gisselle, 26, pairs a cute hot pink tunic from Jirafita In with punky Zibel Morados. (Fun fact: Zibel is an accessory line started by Ivan Zan Modano, a Chilean soccer player). Gisselle’s quilted purse was a gift, but…

Chic On The Street: Fringe Benefits

We saw black fringe swinging prettily as Agustina Lorenzo, 20, walked briskly across Avenida Santa Fe. We had to ask Agustina, an economics major, all about it. Turns out this porteña adds flair to a simple Ayres black shorts and white t-shirt combo—with some DIY fringe benefits. Kudos for showing initiative. And that adorbs red…

Chic On The Street: Everything Old Is New

Is it just us, or is Carlota Pederson Madero surging ahead of the curve and channeling “Papa Don’t Preach” at the same time? We had to stop Carlota, 21, outside Buenos Aires’ Alto Palermo movie theater to ask about her sharp threads: The black trench and striped mini dress are from H&M, the scarf i…

Chic On The Street: South American Rockabilly

We noticed how Sabrina Soledad Morelli looked mysterious and romantic, yet sorta rockabilly, leaning up against the cafe wall. Sabrina, 21, wore a pink gingham Complot blouse, patent leather Clona stacked Mary Janes, and a cute bag by Prüne. She didn’t reply when we asked who she was waiting for. Maybe she didn’t understand our…

Chic On The Street: Red Hot

We spotted Aïda Oualalou, 20, browsing through street vendor jewelry on an extremely congested Avenida Santa Fe. This finance student says she finds most of her wardrobe at street fairs, or ferias. Buenos Aires has plenty of them within the city, and all her jewelry is from various ferias except the ivory cuff from Senegal.

Chic On The Street: Indie Fashion Poster Girl

We thought Lucia Alvarez Fourcade was a girl who looks like she enjoys life when we first spotted her. Maybe it’s that vibrant pattern or the neo-folksy styling. Nineteen-year-old Lucia, an undergrad in psychology, enthusiastically shared that her dress, earrings and necklace are the work of indie designer Lucia LaPlacette, all sold at a Bueno…

Chic On The Street: Totally Organic

This rare gem stands out from a sea of hyper trendies in a more demure ensemble. We found Ana Pucci on her way home from cooking the lunch rush at Artemisia, an organic vegetarian restaurant—which is also pretty rare in Buenos Aires. We were into her sweet Sanskrit skirt, which she bought near Plaza Serrano.

Chic On The Street: The Multitasker

Hardworking ladies need to have fun too! We found Christina Sunae Wiseman, 35, checking out the local music scene (in Buenos Aires) at the Konex Cultural Centre. This NYC transplant is quite the entrepreneur in BsAs—she owns this tour company and Cocina Sunae, a private restaurant (or puerto cerrada to the locals) where she serve…

Chic On The Street: The Photographer’s Uniform

Photographer Juana Lander, 25, was shooting an indie rock event at the Konex in Buenos Aires when she asked to take a picture of this Frisky photographer. She didn’t know that we were already eyeballing her punky combo: leather jacket by Rapsodia, DAM turquoise bustier dress and shoes from Converse. Sneakers and a hot dre…

Chic On The Street: Animal Prints

How does one add a little naughty to the nice and timeless dress-belt-cardi-combo? With zebra print and thick leather belt of course! Sophie Josephine Bouillon, 22, amps up a classic and makes it look effortless. We spotted Sophie, a fashion student, breezing by on Avenida Cabildo in Buenos Aires, and asked her to share her…

Chic On The Street: Granny Style

Deborah Oks, 20, mixes her eclectic sensibility with items she borrowed from her fam. Deborah, an architecture student, is wearing her sister’s tunic from Rapsodia, and, get this, her grandma’s tights. (“It’s true,” she exclaimed and showed us the waistband at her ribcage. “See how high!”) We also heart the red accents from the necklace…

Chic On The Street: Pretty In Pink

When Buenos Aires starts to feel like an outdoor sauna, smart porteñas like Gretel Morús manage to stay cool and pretty in pink. Busy lady Gretel, 32, is a freelance fashion designer who is also working on a line of hair accessories. This lady travels—her dress is from Portobello Road in London, her bag wa…
