    All-Star Converse Street Style

    “I feel most comfortable in an old pair of jeans, Converse, and a man’s jersey.”  – Jane Birkin  Have you noticed? Athleisure is just getting hotter. Designers are finding innovative ways to work into their lines sweat pants and even tube socks (Gucci). And in street fashion, sneakers totally outnumber stilettos.

    Gather Around for a Tiered Trouser Look!

    Anti-Fashion Looks

    One of my favorite street style photographers, Scott Schuman of the Sartorialist, once recommended to budding street style photographers that they get away from the pack of photographers during Fashion Week and find their own voices.
