Brooklyn style is eclectic, creative, and distinct from neighborhood to neighborhood. It’s not about chasing labels. It is stylish on its own terms, and it’s about dressing for real life. Brooklyn Street Style: The No-Rules Guide to Fashion explores what has made the borough a global fashion mecca and presents style advice from a host of Brooklyn tastemakers. This diverse crew of notable women in the design, fashion, food, and entertainment worlds includes style expert Mary Alice Stephenson, Girls costume designer Jenn Rogien, Urban Bush Babes blogger Cipriana Quann, Sleigh Bells’s singer/beauty-industry activist Alexis Krauss, and award-winning actor/playwright Eisa Davis. Chapters distill what’s happening in the borough today—from the maker movement to eco-conscious fashion—with more than 175 striking street-style photographs. Full of suggestions for both visitors and locals alike, the book’s Brooklyn Guide offers a curated listing of the essential shops, markets, restaurants, and bars.
"I was instantly captivated by Brooklyn Street Style. Sacharow and Dahl offer a thorough understanding of Brooklynites’ flair for collaging vintage, high-end, and everyday fashion to create bold, individualistic styles. The gorgeous, pattern-rich photographs and lively text make it hard to look away, and you don’t have to be a fashion person to gain valuable tips from them. Brooklyn Street Style is as much about people and personalities as it is about clothing."Anne Hellman, author of Design Brooklyn —
