“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel
Here are some of my favorite “street style”, documented in photographs:
From The Sartorialist.
My fashion icon: Alexa Chung on the streets of London.
Another fashion icon: Rachel Bilson at LAX airport.
Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester on the streets of New York.
Her red carpet style may have been a lot of hits and misses, but I really love her personal, everyday style. Maybe she should fire her stylist.
I’m just saying. I am really craving for those jeans. And she looks cute in glasses.
Finally, Mark Ronson’s cutie ex Tennessee Thomas – in what appears to be a subway. Not sure this is truly “street style”, the photo seems to be from a magazine spread or something. But I love her style anyway.
Err… yeah, before you ask – I do have a thing for brunette girls.

As much as I appreciate conventional beauty, when it comes to appreciating the beauty of my sex, I always gravitate more towards the unconventional and delightfully quirky.
And this unconventional and delightfully quirky beauty has captured my eyes ever since the first time I saw her in Almost Famous. Since then, I’ve become quite the fan of her work and more importantly, her totally fabulous style.
Her style is very much like mine. Or, to be more honest, my style very much emulates her. I can’t get away wearing some of the things she has worn in fashion spreads or on the red carpet, but still. I like that she just wears what she wants to wear without really caring about the so-called fashion “rules”. She’s Parisian chic, New York edge and London punk all rolled into one.
My current obsession is her style in the Oliver Peoples ad campaign.
Zooey Deschanel pretty much can make anything look good, but she looks best when she’s all quirky chic, and let’s face it – she can rock the red beret like no one can.
The key to her style is mixing and matching. Stripe tee with tiered skirt. Lanvin purse with Converse sneakers. Don’t forget the red beret and the geek chic glasses.
Most importantly, rock the indie sensibility with a smile and a fun attitude. In no time, you too will be the unconventional and delightfully quirky beauty.
Oh and, don’t forget to sing The Smiths’ “There’s A Light That Will Never Go Out” when you’re sharing an elevator with a cute guy.
