weekly streetsnap #5: two is better than one

simple theme: two people in the snap!

1. 지승배 and 치아키 on Hiphoper

Point: clever layering and mixing texture (especially heavier fabrics as the “second outerwear” under a more focal piece) while matching prints with your shoes!  What better way to direct everyone to look at your feet because you are wearing the awesome things that are creepers on them.  Tartan kilt with red + check border creepers, and the leopard print pair!!  (Also – wine hair is so pretty)

2. Neneko and Maaya on Shiftsnap

At first glance, the left girl’s outfit seems more interesting because of her unique tights and great shoes, but it’s actually the whole look on the right that made me include this here.  The cut and geometry of her coat and the way it falls with the aid of an understated but ever-useful belt is brilliant, and her shoes are just as cute as the girl on the left’s.  Her blonde short hair just completes the look as a break from all the black, and lets her quirky earring be visisble (click photo for source for earring!!)

3. ??? on Cracker Your Wardrobe

Collars coordinated in an interesting way are rare, but when they exist, they make it onto here.  The yellow and black is so playful but smart, when the bright top is matched with high waisted suspender pants (they aren’t overalls, nor jumpers, but they are great) and pumps.  The top on the right has a more uncommon collar, nice to see it with sheer sleeves – and this time, conversely, the bottom makes an otherwise smart outfit playful with a light blue skort.  (Also – her bag!!!!)

4. 백수지 and 진호성 on Hiphoper

Let me tell you this now: I hate the running shoes the guy is wearing.  It almost ruins the coord D: HOWEVER, I have to admit that his multi-print-seemingly-patchwork checkered coat and envelope clutch are carried so well that it redeems the outfit for the flawed shoes.  Cute how they match with the girl’s checkered pants (that matches her earmuffs) and also multi-material coat which is 1 part edgy and 3 parts whimsical.  Dr. Martens forever.

5. ??? on Spinns

Sofa king badass, matching pieces with the oversized glasses band tees, varsity jackets and black DM’s but very different looks.  I like the lacy socks on the left maxi-skirted, more girly look – they surprisingly make a very big difference.  The right one reminds me of playing cards and joker even if I can’t really tell what the print on her skirt is, but even if each item is rather busy, it works with the stripy tights.
