If the runway is where fashion is born, the street is where fashion really lives. As Coco Chanel put it, "fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." Our local street style stars have shown this perfectly with their everyday takes on style and fashion.
We take a look at some street style stars photographed by fashion bloggers from cities across the globe.
"Desirée’s look is everything I love about springtime in Chicago. The expert layering and tough-luxe combination of combat boots with an asymmetric chiffon top is super cool."

These springtime Chicago street style looks give us a gorgeous take on some fashion staples. Desirée pairs combat boots with leggings and super-short shorts while covering it up with a stylish asymmetrical chiffon shirt for a look that is sleek and filled with character. Her personal style is all in the details - we love the boho beanie hat and oversized handbag.
Jessica's stylish look combines gorgeous, sleek black lines with a touch of colour and animal print for a super-stylish outfit that could go from the board room to the bar in an instant. The blazing red bag and animal print shoes are made even more visible by the classic black outfit.
Aramide's super sophisticated look combines jewel tones, ditzy prints and fitted lines for an ultra-professional chic look that's definitely fashion forward. The suede platform wedges and wide brimmed hat are a gorgeous touch.

These looks, straight from the streets of Beijing, are some great examples of warm winter style.
A textured, oversized cardigan paired with light cargo pants in a neutral shade and faded combat boots give this look a great tough look with just a hint of femme style. The printed tie is a pretty infusion of colour and the cross body bag gives a pretty, delicate finishing touch.
This ultra slim all black look with simple black brogues is sophisticated style at its best. A dramatic cut-out jumpsuit provides all in one glamour, while metallic cuffs and clutch give this outfit a daring slant.
This warm all black outfit is a great winter look. The mesh texture of the black handbag paired with the soft fur of this oversized coat and leather gloves give this outfit loads of variety, even in monochrome. The chunky scarf is a perfect complement.
