Wicked Wednesdays: Street style 4/04
Look out! You may be the next fashionista spotted on the streets of Denver. On a recent trip downtown, we found two individuals whose eye for assembling an outfit deserved special attention:
Name: Betsy Westhoven
Spotted at: 16th and California
Favorite music on iPod: Citizen Cope, Adele, Florence and the Machine
Favorite film: The Shawshank Redemption
Style mantra: I wear what is comfortable. My favorite accessories are earrings.
Name: Peter Stevinson
Spotted at: 19th and Sherman
Favorite music on iPod: I've been jamming to "Longing for Lullabies" by Kleerup lately.
Favorite film: Casino and Boogie Nights
Style icon/inspirations: James Dean and Chanel. James Dean was clean and classic with jeans and a T-shirt. Coco Chanel was always classy and simple with her elegant designs.
Style mantra: My favorite colors are baby blue and red. My favorite accessory is shoes. Men need to upgrade their shoes in this city. I notice a lot of black shoes, but not much else. Shoes make the outfit more complete, but Denver has a fun, relaxed style.
Street-style analysis: The range of style influences is endless in Denver. One person might be inspired by the The Shawshank Redemption for a casual military look loaded with utility pockets, yet offset by floral-printed wayfarers and purple flats. Another might rebel against the status quo of men's fashion and opt for a pair of bone-colored dress shoes. The decisions we make in regards to our visual presentation can make powerful statements about our lifestyle and character. What decisions will you make? Choose carefully, because we will be watching....and you might even be featured in the next installment of Wicked Wednesdays.
