Kids in the hall
I don’t like fashion. That must sound like an extreme contradiction coming from a fashion columnist. Style though, style is something I really dig. I love to see people who are confident in what they are wearing, especially those who don’t give a shit about labels or what’s popular on the runways. I love style because it’s completely subjective.
With the emergence of blogs, street style has become a powerful force in the fashion community. People around the world have created careers through photographing and blogging about the streets’ most stylish people. I am freakishly obsessed with street-style blogs. I spend hours dreamily gazing at tattooed boys from Copenhagen wearing perfectly-faded Levis, Parisian women who magically ride their bicycles wearing five inch heels and teenagers dressed in Anime-influenced outfits all the way in Tokyo.
I decided to scour the halls of Mount Royal University to find inspiration from our peers. Admittedly, it took me a while to weed through the sea of Uggs, Toms and sweatpants. Eventually though, I was able to find a few diamonds. Take note and see what your comrades are wearing to class. I’ve provided a list of my favorite street-style blogs, I think it’s a perfect way to waste time over the reading week. Enjoy.
