Street Style: Très Awesome Snaps Photos of Some of Chicago’s Smartest

Emma Arnold of street style site Très Awesome is back on The ModCloth Blog to share some more of her fabulous fashion photos! Trust us — the cheeky-cool Chi-towners featured here will definitely leave you wowed by the Windy City. Here’s what Emma had to say:

“I’m a self-proclaimed nerd. I play video games, I know the difference between a stalactite and a stalagmite, and would rather read a book than engage in anything sports-related, which got me thinking about some of my stylish lady friends who work in similarly geeky-chic industries. Often in offices stuffed with dudes wearing hoodies and sneakers, these women bring it with their own unique takes on personal style. Have a look!”

Research Account Executive Hallie Wilson pairs some solid separates with cherry reds and chic accessories.

“What do you typically wear to work?” Emma asked Hallie Wilson (pictured above).

“I actually wore this to work last Friday. I’m lucky — my company doesn’t employ a strict dress code, so I’m able to wear what I want,” Hallie said. “When a closet crisis strikes (or when I snooze too long), I go with dark denim skinnies and a blazer. My favorite thing to wear, though, is a great pair of Jeffrey Campbells — no one in the office can figure out how I walk in them!”

Senior Interactive Project Manager Lee H. looks bodacious in some bold brights on her way to work!

Director of Interactive Media Joie Mikitson looks lavish in animal prints and metallic platforms.

“Thanks for reading, folks! Keep an eye out for more of my street style photos when I guest Instagram for ModCloth in April!”

    Ok, I am loving the red and black outfit. Very well put together. The tights and the shoes work splendidly and the look on her face is priceless.

      Agreed! Although, I’m a sucker for brightly dyed hair especially when it matches equally bold pieces, so the second one is my favorite!

    Love the shorts and black tights look! Makes your summer wardrobe more versatile!

    These styles are so fun and colorful! Inspires me to put a little more effort in what I wear everyday.

    Ohh – love the red in the first two pics!

    I luv the retro 80’s style… yellow jacket and orange leg warmers.

    • Laura (ModCloth) 03/12/2012 at 9:33 am #

      That’s my favorite, too!

  9. ellen 03/11/2012 at 8:04 am #

    The third is my favorite. Nothing better then mixed animal prints.

    I love the pairing of shorts and tights in the first photo. I have a great pair of shorts that I can’t wait until summer to wear. Still, I don’t want to freeze, so this is the best of both worlds. Thanks, Emma! 🙂

    So flattered to be on the Mod Blog. Emma is such a talented photog – happy I got the chance to shoot with her! Love these other looks, too. Nerd Power! 🙂
