Ximena is from Mexico and she's visiting Chicago on vacation. For style inspiration, she likes ASOS and social media. She's a student but school's out! Journalist Regina Brett said, "Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds." Or for Ximena it's about seeing the sights of Chicago and if you're walking a lot then better do it in style a la Comme des Garcons! @ximenafigueroaz

We spotted Luke in a Starbucks in Chicago. He told us that he is from the Chicago suburbs but now lives in Indiana. We were very impressed with his chic style; we loved his dark, mysterious vibe! It seems he has an almost effortless sense of style. This is to be expected, of course, as Luke looks to Nico Tortorella, a model and actor with impeccable fashion sense, for inspiration. As Nico once said, in order to stop feeling nervous around strangers, “I kind of walk into every situation like I'm walking in to meet my peers, and they either like me or not.” We feel that Luke definitely embodies this confident, carefree attitude with his style and demeanour. @hommefortheweekend

Shawn stood out on the streets of Chicago in his bold striped trousers! We love his confident attitude to clothes. He's is a hairdresser with a penchant for vintage styles finding his inspiration from past styles, he enjoys making the old new. Through this, he matches brands to make unique looks like the one he was wearing today! Canadian Philosopher Matshona Dhliwayo said, “Don't run with the crowd; fly with the stars.” The only way is up Shawn! @shawnmarjunian

Robert Swan said, "the greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it." We all need to play our part in helping the environment and that's what Patrick is doing, he's a freelance designer for women’s clothes with reused pieces. In a world of cheap throwaway fashion upcycling seems the honourable way forward. We've seen more and more designers giving old outfits a new life. As for Patrick, he wants to start his own clothing line, we wonder what it will be called, what about 'All Dressed Up', or 'Up the Ante'. We need more people to take a new route in the name of the environment, good luck with your new venture Patrick! @cholospice_

Meet Serky, she's from Beijing, she is a flight attendant and had stopped off in Chicago for a few days between flights with her Chinese airline. She was taking in the sights with her friends. She likes the casual look which is great for travelling and we'd love to see a flight attendant outfit as good as this one! Serky told us that her favourite brand is Fendi and she wears it will in their shades. Indian actor Ajith Kumar said, "Aren't we all dreamers? It's only because man dreamt of flying that we are travelling in planes. Behind all inventions, we see the dreams of people." We wonder where Serky dreams of travelling to next, if her look is anything to go by it is somewhere luxe and relaxed all rolled into one!

Anna was in Chicago visiting from Austria, we bumped into her outside of mega-famous department store Bloomingdales. Anna is studying photography and film but she's also learning about style from her companion Marie, to the right. She told us that she looks to her for fashion inspiration. And, Visual Artist Marie is definitely working a few current trends like the striped socks; it's the enduring look that keeps on giving. Why? Because in the world of big brands like Vetements, (who sell them as fast as they make them), socks come cheap-ish! Anna, hasn't adopted the look yet but something tells us she's not far off. Have fun in the windy city Anna and if your ankles get cold, you know the score! @Ruszmann @mar.ierei.chel

Ontaria describes herself as uncommon. She can often be seen working it when she models amazing outfits for magazines. Ontaria is from Chicago and doesn't have a favourite brand, she loves them all! She also likes to find treasures in thrift stores, like the top and pants she was wearing here. When we met her she was out birthday shopping for her mom. Good to see that she still keeps her feet on the ground, we bet Mom thinks Ontaria is very uncommon too, especially if she goes all out with the gift! @ontariaalexander

Lauryn lives in the city of Chicago and has grown up there. Like many of her contemporaries, she gets her style inspiration from Instagram, Twitter and celebrity look books. But then again, she has a stand-out style that's sure to get her noticed! Well, we did! She's currently studying journalism and communication. American Businessman Jim Rohn said, "Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people." And there's that all-important aspect of first impressions, but Lauryn we thank you have that covered! @awlauryn
