Street Style

October 10, 2014

Street style is an essential force that drives both the high fashion industry and high street trends. More importantly, when done correctly, it can be an art form in itself – reflecting the complex relationship between the world of aesthetics and the real world. I set out to scour the streets, the beach and shopping hubs in order to find the best this art form had to offer in Newport Beach. What I found was a lot of super casual mommas but equally stylish people who truly cared about what they looked like.

Leave it to Newport Beach to show a diversity of looks. From stroller pushing Moms, men on their way to work in a perfectly tailored suit to high fashion gals in too high of heels. Being a voyeur on one of their many benches and curbside cafes proved to be so much fun I didn’t want to leave.

He’s got the blues: There were some definite men’s street style fashion but what I noticed was that they payed extra attention to their shoes. This gentleman braved the streets in cream pants and a v-neck sweater while taking a lunch break on the beach; but it was that one stand out piece, those blue shoes that had me running up to talk to him.
