The Street Styles of 2012
Photos by Catherine Downes
I bring my camera everywhere with me, literally everywhere, and on occasion I'll spot somebody and think "that person put some thought into what they're wearing, I want to take their picture" -- it's called Street Style. It's not necessarily based on who is wearing the latest trends or who looks the most "expensive," rather, people who look interesting and appear confident in their ensemble. With that said, here is a list of some of my favorite Street Styles of 2012.
Pictured above: Name: Fred Holston Style influences: Anita Pallenberg, Brian Jones, Brian Eno, Keith Richards, a bunch of hot bitches from the '60s.
Name: Bethany Burke Style influences: Edie Sedgwick mixed with Stevie Nicks. I've been dressing pretty dark lately. I like dead things a lot, my look is "dark '70s."
Name: Sarah Cole Style influences: Tumblr fashion icons.
Name: Tom (In bands: X-Ray Eyeballs and Food Stamps) Style influences: My friends, places I live, especially New Jersey and Brooklyn. Also, comfort.
