This is Gnat and I spotted her on one of the 60 degree days last week. She is a fashion designer in the making and mostly loves to shop for thrifted pieces. I almost always wear skirts to work but I have been in a pants mode lately and her colorful pants really caught my eye. Every time I go back to India, I make sure to buy similar pants because they are so comfy especially during my 20 hour flights. What are some your most comfy outfits?
This is Amber – a hair model here in Chicago and I spotted her on State Street. No doubt she is sporting a fun hairstyle – love the streaks of brown popping beneath her blond hair. I also liked how her dress with the geometric patterns were peeking out while she was walking by. It was a nice pop of color against all other neutral pieces. I also thought that wearing sheer patterned tights with rugged military boots was also an interesting choice.
I spotted this lovely style outlier – Bianca – on State Street a while back. I loved the combination of her over-the-knee platform boots with the military/utility jacket. Besides the chic look, I also love the lighting in this shot and how it highlights Bianca’s face. Our multiple attempts paid off!
As you may have realized from the lack of posts, I have not been shooting much street style in the past one or two weeks because of the cold weather and the super busy schedule at work. I had shot this style outlier towards the end of fall and what made me photograph her was her love for the red/fuchsia/maroon color and how that was incorporated in her look. Not all of us are bold enough to color our hair with bright hues even though once in a while we may really want to (I know I have) BUT I found a very easy and simple solution! I came across these colorful soft chalks for your hair that gives similar look as a dye would but its temporary. They are Senellier brand pastels found at Blick or any other art supply stores. Read a detailed how-to here. Have fun playing with the fun colors!
