Street Style: Wicker Park Edition

by Lauren

Hey guys! We are so excited to announce our brand new series that is kicking off today!! This little project has been in the works for a few weeks now and the first chapter is finally here! We absolutely love the styles of Chicago, and are most inspired by people we see while out shopping, or sipping some Chai in our favorite new coffee shop, The WormHole. We have found that every neighborhood is diverse and unique in its style, so we decided to explore these different areas and get the scoop about what is on trend.

Wicker Park is an artsy little neighborhood known for its hipster counter culture and is home to some of our most favorite haunts. (Hello, Violet Hour and Barrelhouse Flat!) We spent a whole day exploring this area with one thought in mind: fabulous people rocking awesome styles. In between some very necessary shopping excursions at the Warby Parker showroom and the Benefit boutique, we were able to talk to some girls with absolutely killer style. Here's a little of what we saw! 

Meet Jenny.

 A girl from Indiana who has relocated to Wicker Park to pursue a career in creative design. We spotted her in The WormHole and it was love at first sight! We pounced. She was more than willing to share a little with us about her personal style and we absolutely love it.

A few of her favorite things are :

shopping at Una Mae's in Wicker Park( a few stores down from the WormHole)

Vintage anything

Her style icon for the moment: Alexander Wang.

Here is what she rocked: Limbo Ring- a gorgeous design straight out of Austin, Texas, Shirt-MinkPink, Pants-Forever 21, Boots, jacket, and Bag-Vintage, Earrings- Una Mae's.

We wish this up and coming fashionista the best of luck in her career in design!

Meet Betsy.

This pretty lady is fresh off 2 years working for Teach for America and has a new exciting career with them! We think her style is professional with a bit of added flair and personality. Betsy's style has been influenced by the different cultures of the places she's lived. From Tennessee to Wicker Park, though she has a hipster vibe, her southern roots still shine. Here's what she wore : 

Glasses: Vintage

Sweater: Banana Republic

Chambray Shirt, Coat, Belt: J. Crew

This cute teacher definitely taught a lesson or two about great style.
