Str33t Styl3

Guys, street style has really come to bother me. This is frustrating because there's not much I'd rather do on the internet than click through pictures of strangers wearing stylish clothes. With every iteration of fashion week, street style becomes more outrageous and less realistic. If the original point of street style photos was to capture fashionably ordinary people on city streets, then it has completely lost sense of its purpose. I know that fashion week doesn't necessarily attract ranks of relatively normal people, but some of the street style pictures I've seen from #nyfw thus far reveal that fashion show attendees are either wearing designer lewks straight off the runway or the most absurd, attention-grabbing outfits they own, both of which aren't things relatively normal people would wear. Street style pictures, generally speaking, aren't capturing the impeccable personal style of strangers on the street like they used to.

I'd rather look at pictures of Reese Witherspoon and Naomi Watts going to yoga class than some of the street style pictures from fashion week.
