Chicago Street Style | Thrifted Type

Mar 10, 2012 No Comments by

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?

Chicago Street Style | Possible Patterns

Chicago Street Style FashionThis 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.

Chicago Street Style Fashion I Military Chic

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!

Chicago Street Style Fashion

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!
