We spotted Tavi Johnson, a Denver native who's a senior at Emily Griffith High School, on Broadway at 16th Street, decked out in her Stitch gear. "Stitch is adorable and he is my favorite thing ever. I love him," says Johnson. "Lilo and Stitch is my favorite film and my favorite color is blue. I like alternative fashion: emo and scene fashion."
Johnson bought all of the items in this look from Hot Topic, including her wallet, hoodie, T-shirt and beanie.
Sabe Taylor is a student at Emily Griffith as well, studying culinary arts. We spotted him wearing a military-inspired outfit with a Stitch accessory: his backpack. "I don't have any style icons, but most of the time I dress in a skater style," Taylor says. "I watch lots of ninja movies. My street style can be random sometimes. I just throw stuff together that I feel looks good."
Never be afraid to start your own fashion trend, Denver -- even if it's based on a thirteen-year-old Disney character.
