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. Keep reading »

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 Keep reading »

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 skirt is from a vintage boutique on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake. Good news for those of us who want to “borrow” her style—Maria just quit her job to start her own line. Keep reading »

This Is What An Off-Duty Flight Attendant Looks Like (Cute!)

Think “flight attendant” and images of nude stockings, nylon blazers, and straight skirts that border on matronly probably come to mind. We’re obsessed, however, with Asako Itono, a flight attendant for Emirates Airlines, who was caught in her off-duty uniform on the streets of NYC. Girl has got some awesome indie style, mixing rare pieces from Japan with classic brands like Burberry. Something to consider … being a flight attendant could also mean having a rad international wardrobe. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Check This Out: Inside The Brains Of Fashion Kids Blog

Part of the genius of street style and fashion photo blogs is that the picture is the story. What the person is wearing should provoke your imagination. Still, wouldn’t it be cool if you did know everything about that white-haired chick on Jak & Jil, or one of the many tweed-suited men on The Sartorialist? That’s where this Tumblr blog, Inside The Brains Of Fashion Kids, steps in. Sort of. Selecting snaps from street style sites, ITBOFK imagines the inner monologues of the too-cool-for-school subjects. A girl in a denim vest thinks: “I hate the fact that you’ll look at me and think that my clothes make me who I am. I’m more than a denim jacket with the sleeves cut off so you can see my sexy untouched ivory skin. I’m more than these black leggings that cling to my butt so tightly you can see the last person I had anal-sex with. Oops, did I say that out loud? … ” Warning: this blog is extremely un-P.C. and totally unforgiving. Which is why it’s kinda awesome. [Inside The Brains Of Fashion Kids] Keep reading »

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; the charm-filled necklace is from a feria (street fair) in Parque Serrano and that cool belt is from Wanama. Curious, we took a look inside Épica and can report that it carries awesome downtown chic designs. Keep reading »

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 we wish we could buy her killer blue-black blunt bangs. Keep reading »

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 purse by Prune? Nice touch.

Street Style Blogs Passe; Vlogs Where It’s At


We’re not ashamed to admit that we’re full-on street style blog addicts. (Although, mainly out of jealousy of their impeccably-dressed subjects.) We’re noticing that the genre is moving to a different level after seeing real-style documentarians move to video platforms, which gives a whole new feeling to street style. We recently came across Vimeo user Jake Davis’s dreamy Test Shot videos, which offer a more poignant look at the featured person’s outfit through slow-mo close-ups and smooth beats. His short movies go beyond the aesthetics of style, and begin to talk more about the person behind the clothes, almost like a mini-narrative. Check it out! [Vimeo] Keep reading »

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 is a gift from Paris, and the vintage ’90s Kenzo platform loafers belong to her mother. Get this—she donned this outfit to go sight-seeing with her grandparents. People, it’s crucial to always make the effort. Keep reading »
