Chicago street style: Sophie Messing
This SAIC student has a 1990s look.
What inspires your style most?
I’m from Seattle, so I always end up subtly channeling the Northwest in the way I dress.
Favorite thrift stores?
The Village Discount Outlet and Brown Elephant. And when I am in Seattle, I shop at the Red Light, Buffalo Exchange and Crossroads.
Your jean jacket is very ’90s-inspired.
I’ve been told that I have a very ’90s look and I agree.… But I always associate that time period with ugliness, so it’s not really something I try for.
