With a reputation of being a city overrun by fashion-inept college students wearing pajamas in public and sports fans who too often opt to hit the streets wearing jerseys, Boston was recently named as a worst-dressed city, but Bostonians have plenty of style! As a major metro area with no shortage of major designers' work for sale as well as plenty of young interpretations on the latest looks, the ladies of Boston can draw inspiration and stay on-trend each season.
Krista Casey and Dave Kavaler strive to capture Bostonians in their finest fashion moments, proving that there just as many runway-worthy fashion-conscious and fashion-forward Bostonians, and that the style within our city deserves a second look. They are the brains behind BostonStreetStyle.com, a blog illustrating some of Boston's most fashionable residents looking their best, discuss current looks seen around our city and offer their expert eye with fresh fashion advice.
Boston is embracing some big trends - and pulling them off well, say Krista and Dave. There are three looks they have noticed quite a bit of this season: printed pants, long asymmetrical translucent skirts, and hats from several different local designers such as Goorin Bros. & Salmagundi. On their blog, the duo is less focused on trends, with more of a focus on an individual's own unique sense of style. They point out that trends are of the moment but a unique personal style is a lifelong pursuit.
Often described as a cultural melting pot, the eclectic nature of Boston, combined with student population and thriving artistic community, there are many Bostonians dressing in new and interesting ways. On Boston Street Style, they try to photograph people whose clothing choices are inspirational with the hope that Boston Street Style is a platform for others to be exposed to Boston's vibrant and diverse style.
The pair offers this advice for Boston women: Experiment with different pieces to learn what best flatters your figure and makes you feel happy and relaxed. They encourage you to take risks and not be afraid to try new and different things. Combine patterns, textures and structures to create a singular look. Most importantly, have fun and whatever you choose to wear, make sure you are comfortable and wear it with confidence.
Flaunt your look and have fun! If you wear it well, you may end up on Boston Street Style!
