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

Shoes, oh my god, shoes. If there’s one thing to ponder before you leave the house, it’s what to wear on your feet. Rachel, pictured above, made a wise choice for a summer street festival: a comfy but eye-catching pair that made her look stand out. Another point of interest is Rachel’s beaded necklace-slash-lighter holder, made by SAIC student Mary Kate Peterson. Quite a fire/conversation starter.
