Chicago street style | Rachel Smith
This stylist isn’t afraid to get a little weird.
I like your animal-centric accessories. How do you describe your style?
My style is fun, weird, vibrant and completely out of this world sometimes. Every day I reveal another side of me through my outfits. I love to take risks when it comes to fashion.
Let’s talk about that foxtail.
Last year I started wearing foxtails. The inspiration was from one of my stylish friends who resides in Virginia. I love my tail! It gets so many reactions from people on the street and most importantly, it’s different! The bow tie is one of my first creations. I began making my own jewelry, bow ties and clothes last year.
Who are your style icons?
When it comes to style, the people I admire are Erykah Badu, Gwen Stefani, Kid Cudi, Fonzworth Bentley and Kanye West.
