My Chicago Street Style

As a Texas transplant in the Midwest, I can say I've seen my fair share of diverse style. In Dallas, mile-high hair and rhinestone-studded denim reign supreme, whereas Chicago style embodies a sleek, functional feel – no need to sacrifice fashion for warmth! The fashion you see in each city is an extension of the art found throughout – both are an expression of who the city is, and what it's about, via the people who live in it. Perrier is celebrating the identity of a city with the launch of three limited edition bottles that feature artwork from world-famous street artists drawing inspiration from cities across the globe. They asked me to take one of the new bottles for a stroll in my city, and show off Chicago's street art. Keep reading to see where I went!

Much like the street style you'll see throughout the city, Chicago's street art reflects a creative hub that doesn't sacrifice beauty for functionality. I took Perrier to one of my favorite pieces of art in the city. While not necessarily street-side, it's a public spot I frequent nearly every week when I travel, yet never get tired of looking at it. The Good Stew mural by gallery37 at Chicago's O'Hare Airport is 144 feet of acrylic paint meant to capture the details of urban life that it's so easy to miss during day-to-day life in a busy city. Every time I walk by, I spot something new – something I hadn't noticed before. Placing a beautiful mural indoors, in an unexpected locale, reminds me that neither art nor beauty need to lose to functionality.

Likewise, fashion and style can't be stopped by plunging temperatures! One of my favorite street styles to rock in weather that would make even a penguin shiver is a dress with fleece-lined tights, and a long-sleeved button up. It's an outfit that provides ample warmth, along with the fun and flirtiness of a dress.

Keep your eyes open for Perrier's new bottles and consider taking it along for your own art walk, appreciating some of the hidden gems your city has to offer.
