Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

As he walked into a luxurious room at the W Chicago filled with models, stylist Charles Harris, 29, still managed to turn heads. “It’s important to dress well because it brings a certain level of confidence—you walk into a room and you don’t even need to say anything before you get noticed,” he says. A wardrobe consultant for MP Factor modeling agency (Factor Chosen till recently), Harris was attending a party benefiting the Anti-Cruelty Society when he was photographed. Clients at his wardrobe consultancy business, Live Limitless, have included Nike, Macy’s, and the Chicago Bulls, and he’s also a personal shopper. His best styling tip? Courage, he says. “Don’t say you can’t wear anything without trying it on first. Don’t create a glass ceiling with your own style.”
