I’m really into plain logo t-shirts as of late. They create a crisp, clean palate to be mixed with bold accessories.

“Street Style” is one of my favorite aspects of the industry.

For those of you who might not know, it’s okay to get out of your pajamas to run errands. It’s okay to wear heels when you’re not going clubbing. It’s okay to get….dressed.
It’s now possible (with much thanks to sites like Lookbook.nu, Chictopia, The Facehunter, and The Sartorialist) to gain outfit inspiration from something other than glossies insisting we buy $1600 t-shirts (yeah Balmain, I’m looking at you). These are real people, who put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us. If they can put these looks together after a morning shower and a grande caramel macchiato, so can we! Here are a few street style shots I’ve recently thrown into the inspiration folder on my desktop:
