Street Style: Six Corners in Wicker Park

BY: KELLY MACDOWELL | 8.23.2013 |

Street Style: Six Corners in Wicker ParkThough it’s a reputed haven for hipsters (whatever that means anymore), Wicker Park’s Six Corners actually teems with disparate, mingling fashions. This diversity stems in part from the broad spectrum of shops in the area: well-known brands such as Urban Outfitters and Free People, vintage stores such as Ragstock and Crossroads Trading Co., and independent boutiques such as Una Mae’s and Eskell. When you’re surrounded by young people and some of the city’s best shopping, it’s hard to swing a Reckless Records bag without bumping into a stylish passerby.
