Street Style: Visual Merchandiser Lonye White Spotted In Chicago

Denver isn't the only city that's looking good. On the streets of Chicago, we ran into Forever 21 visual merchandiser Lonye White. She works at the Forever 21 store on Michigan Avenue in the Windy City, and she was sporting some serious style: burgundy socks and black leather combat boots, a gray dress with a cement-colored handbag, a motorcycle jacket, a denim button-up tied around her waist, and a red manicure that added an energetic pop of color to her ensemble. "If I had to describe my personal style, it would be vintage meets edgy-rocker-glam," White told us, when we chatted with her about what influences her style. 
Style inspirations and icons: My style is pretty much inspired by '70s fashion. My biggest style inspiration would definitely be Solange Knowles and Anna Dello Russo.
Favorite color: Black, olive, grey and burgundy. 

Style mantra: Unfortunately, I don't have a style mantra.
Shops at: I purchased my outfit at Forever 21. 
Favorite accessory: It would have to be statement necklaces and wide-brim fedoras. 

White has a look that pops on the streets of Chicago, and provides some inspiration for Mile High City fashionistas, too: Always wear your favorite colors and show off your personal style, Denver.
