Street Style: Ankle Boots and Buttondowns in Brooklyn, NYby susieg on Aug 17, 2012 • 13:18 •
When it comes to street style, anything goes. Hitting the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we spotted a few casual cool chiquitas near the oh-so-popular Bedford Avenue subway stop, each one flaunting their own unique stylish flavor.
While the summer sun and heatwaves may still be grossly hanging around, the sweater-loving days of fall are just around the corner. With this in mind, we were eager to find out what these street style mavens we bumped into (who were all about the button-down blouse) we’re going to be rocking in the PBR-covered ‘hood for the months ahead.
Turns out, ankle boots definitely seem to be a solid, must-have item around these parts. Check out what else these ladies plan on wearing come the fall season and see what they’re rocking in the meantime by taking a glance at the photos down below!

Tell us about your style and what you’re wearing today: I was running late to work so I put on this cut-off blouse, and some acid wash shorts cause they’re really loose, and I always wear my Docs to work ’cause they’re amazing. I got this fringe necklace at a vintage store and I love it.
How would you describe your style in three words? Casual. Fun. Badass.
What trends are you looking forward to for the fall season? Fall means I can like wear everything that’s big and drape-y again, that’s too hot in the summer. Big, black and long, and some black lipstick – definitely.
