Street Style

We get inspired by street style everywhere we go – New York, Milan, London, L.A….even Seattle at times!

Trending: Pink and Yellow

Pink and yellow street style

New York Fashion Week was amazingly inspiring to me. I love taking photos of street style in general, and when it’s fashion week, you get the what my husband Mark calls the “World Series” of style – the sidewalks full of pros and people in-the-know when it comes to current and upcoming trends. Far be it for me to endorse any […] Read more…

Trend Alert: Eye-Catching Collars

Miss Patina love cat shirt

This year I was so excited to actually BE at New York Fashion Week to see and take photos of that most adventurous, on-point, and crazy street style IN PERSON. I didn’t have to employ my usual furtive maneuver of holding my camera waist-high while discreetly looking down at a tilted viewfinder to capture candid shots of […] Read more…

Street Style Highlights From the Jeremy Scott Show, NYFW

Chiara Ferrigno’s “read my lips” look Street style is always inspiring to me, even – or maybe especially – when it’s completely crazy and off-the-wall. Since personal style is a reflection/extension of our personalities, I have a deep appreciation for a sartorial sense of humor and playfulness. And so, while I’ve been here at New […] Read more…

Tips for Styling a Long Cardigan

Have you noticed how over the years, our style becomes more sophisticated? Over time we stop adopting every trend we see on a blog, in a fashion magazine, or on the street and instead, start exercising the power to pick and choose what suits our personalities and flatters our bodies. Of course, every now and then we’ll give something outside of our comfort […] Read more…

Summer street style

I know, you’ve hit the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (or did other pre-fall shopping), and you can’t wait to start wearing your favorite fall trends. But summer’s not over yet! Here’s some style inspiration I’ve brought you fresh from the streets of Manhattan for those still yet-to-come hot days in the city. Upon arriving to Penn Station on Saturday […] Read more…

Roundup of Fave Street Style in 2016 (So Far)

theSTYLetti street style roundup, 2016

Happy middle-of-the-week! You might remember that a couple of weeks ago I put together a collection of favorite outfits in 2016 shared by Liliya, Julia, and yours truly. Since the STYLetti is also about all the stylish people we encounter on the streets – real people, not celebrities! – I thought it would be fun to feature a roundup of […] Read more…

Trending: Minimal to No Jewelry

No Jewelry

Have you noticed lately? Jewelry has become practically optional – and when you do see it on the street, it’s most likely minimalist. I suppose jewelry – like everything else in fashion – has its cycles. I actually find it amusing that while block-heeled shoes in granny styles are now fashionable, big statement jewelry many of our grandmothers […] Read more…

Why Your Next Summer Hat Should be Black

The other day while running in my neighborhood, I came across this scene. It isn’t often that I see real street style in Seattle (they were tourists searching for Curt Cobain’s house). And so naturally, I spun around to capture it all with my iPhone. I mean, how often do you see a pair of cool Mary Jane-ish boots (to the […] Read more…

8 Ideas for Pulling Off Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator styles

A few years ago, I got rid of a prized pair of flat gladiator sandals – you know, the perfect fit, color, style,…, thinking that surely, gladiators were on their way out. Well, every summer since then, I have longed for those perfect sandals. And I’ve learned a hard lesson: gladiators aren’t actually a trend; they are a summer staple. This summer I […] Read more…

All-Star Converse Street Style

Converse street style in L.A.

“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. While recently blogging about sneaker street style, I realized that I […] Read more…

How to Style Short Shorts

How to wear short shorts

I’m sure that the first thing many of us think about while pondering short shorts is how our legs look: is my skin too pale/uneven, have I exfoliated enough, or have my gams gotten enough exercise? Once we make it past those mental challenges, however, thoughts usually turn to style: how can I look chic rather than cheap in short shorts, and what is the best look for […] Read more…
