Chic On The Street: Creative Casual

We adore Belen Sozogni’s colorful and free-spirited style. A painter (of course!), she pulls together her pink cardigan, green pants (from an Indian clothing store at Plaza Italia) and patterned purple top (from a store in San Bernado La Costa) in a fresh new way. Hey, we think her idea of comfort — perfect for…

It’s The Sartorialist, Except With Really Bad Fashion

You certainly know and love Scott Schuman’s blog, dedicated to the most gorgeous, stylish urban trendsetters in the world. But with all the various street style pics roaming around out there (our own included), these days, good-looking stunners who dress well are a dime a dozen. That’s why we’re loving the SartoriaS**t. Why, what a…

Chic On The Street: L-O-L-A Lola

Buenos Aires’ Palermo Soho is teeming with busy cuties like Lola Torres, who was walking briskly to work when we begged her for five minutes of her time. We’re just totally feeling how that bright strawberry dress warms up her skin tone, not to mention that punchy bag (we even like her delicate calf tattoo).

Chic On The Street: A Handmade Shirt-Dress

Florencia Broussain, 22, was strolling through the San Telmo antique market when we got a load of her darling shirt-dress. Florencia, a Chilean design major, told us she made it herself. This young lady must love street purchases—she thinks the scarf around her waist is from another antique market, and is certain she bought her…

Chic On The Street: Not Your Ordinary Buenos Aires Tourist

We stopped Anna Crittenden, 23, exiting a shoe store. Initially, she protested about getting her picture taken, saying, “I don’t look very good.” Nonsense! This chick — originally from London and visiting her bro in Argentina–looks like she rolls out of her bed gorgeous and trend savvy—especially with that vintage Chanel bag (from a flea…

Chic On The Street: Nadia’s Statement Pieces

While scoping out the local art scene at Nassau’s own Popop Studios (in the decidedly untouristy Chippingham neighborhood), we spotted Nadia Campbell, 33. More specifically, we were fixated on her tricked-out coral and wood choker. Turns out she made it herself, and works on her own jewelry line in the same building as the gallery.

Chic On The Street: Nassau Tomboys

Best buds (left to right) Kachelle Knowles and Khmia Poitier are all about comfort. These College of the Bahamas art majors take all the same classes, and are sometimes on campus until midnight. Which is why they wear pajama bottoms and t-shirts under their coveralls they scored from the Red Cross. They even cop to…

Wellies, The Official Shoe Of Fashion Week?

As NYC’s snowy winter wonderland turns into hellish puddles of slush, Fashion Week goers have a rough decision to make. Give in to the terrors of not-so-stylish wellies and boots or suck it up and wear heels. This morning, as the first brave fashion souls found their way to the tents in Bryant Park, footwear…

Chic On The Street: Bahamian Eyeshadow

What’s blue, pink, gold and a total cheerfest? We’re thinking Blair Grey is. Strolling out of poli-sci class at the College of the Bahamas, Blair caught our eye immediately with an unexpected color combo on her eyelids (she scored the shadow at Icing) and that adorbs zipper motif tank by Max Rave. This social work…

Chic On The Street: Neely In Nassau

We found Tyrina Neely, 24, standing out at Bob Marley’s 60th birthday celebration in Nassau, Bahamas. She’s both sleek and flashy in high-waisted jean leggings, a short and natural ‘do, great big accessories and snappy gladiators. Looking stylish is actually her full-time job: She runs her own virtual fashion network, Primadona.

Would You Wear Heels In The Snow?

I’m a high heel lover, but even I have to admit defeat when it snows. My rubber-soled boots win every time because I like my limbs. Anyway, I’ve noticed quite a few women wearing their heels in the snow on my favorite street style site, Chictopia. So I wonder, do you wear heels in the…

A Month Of Outfits Worn By Alexa Chung

Many of us at The Frisky were completely bummed when Alexa Chung’s MTV show, “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” got canceled, not because we watched it regularly (we’re at work at the time, as we suspect most of the audience was), but because it gave us the opportunity to see Alexa’s outfits on a daily…

Backyard Bill Is Your New Favorite Street Style Blog

Calling all voyeurs: Looking for a cross between The Sartorialist and The Selby? Yeah, we figured as much. Backyard Bill, which “features stylish folks in their own clothes,” blends William Gentle’s gorgeous photography with fashion in intimate settings. International in scope, there’s Arpana Rayamajhi, a lovely Nepalese New Yorker (pictured); Christian Steen, a fascinating-looking Gothenberg-based…

Chic On The Street: Guess The Queen

We did a serious double take when we spotted none other than fashion icon, TV star and queen of all drag queens, RuPaul stepping out on the town in a rather stylish, yet masculine suit with a lovely mint scarf for an added pop of color. And damn, those legs really do go for miles.

The Catorialist: Kitties Got Mad Street Style

It was only a matter of time! As you may have guessed, The Catorialist is a street style blog … all about cats (and a parody of The Sartorialist, obviously). Pretty photos of kitties with Sartorialist-inspired captions like, “On the street … Full tortoise, Chinatown, LA,” “The model … Bowery, NYC” and “On the street…

Brain Teaser For The Style Obsessed

Perusing street style websites for hours is one of our slightly embarrassing guilty pleasures. Sure, we pick up style tips and identify missteps, but sometimes we can’t help but wonder whether we’re wasting too much time. With the Street Style Memory Game, though, we don’t have to choose between our sartorial hunting habit and being…
