In our final week searching for street style inspired by street art, we decided to head to Chelsea. Here, we discovered a colorful mural by the renowned street artist, Dasic Fernandez and #CHALKFIT, a wall covered in mini murals created by Fashion Institute of Technology students. Naturally, the people accompanying the murals in this edition are looking just as unique and fun as the neighborhood we found them in.

Tell us about your outfit: These shoes are from Free People and my jeans are J Brand. This shirt and my jean vest I got on Shopbop and by bracelet is Mola Sasa. I’ve been really into accessorizing simple outfits with bold colors and textures. A lot of fashion bloggers I follow have mentioned the “Canadian tuxedo” in their fashion posts, which is pairing jeans with a jean shirt or jacket so I thought I would give it a try!
