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 »

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 Spanish, or she’s just mysterious like we thought. Keep reading »

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. Not that Aïda needs any extra help in the sizzle department, but she manages to amp up this scorchin’ red number (from a San Telmo feria) with a gold, braided belt (from a Recoleta feria). The bag was a present, and the sandals are from Zara. Also, do we really need to mention how much we love her hair? Overt works for her. We love. Keep reading »

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 Buenos Aires antique market called Anasagasti Antigüedades. And her sandals are from Columbia. So cute. Keep reading »

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. All-natural, indeed. Keep reading »

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 serves up Korean, Thai and Filipino food. Kudos to this chica for keeping it all together while looking pretty major in a purple dress by Akiabara, black and white print scarf from Alexi Andriotti, Target sandals, and bag by Bolu.

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 dress totally work, especially for those of us who like a sensible shoe while we shoot. Keep reading »

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 style secrets. She’s wearing a dress from Akibara, belt from Zucca, cardigan from Zara and sandals from Havaianas. Well done. Keep reading »

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 (a present) and slides, which Deborah picked out while traveling in Cusco, Peru.
