Chicago street style: Valen Sparks, 20
Do you always match your boots with your shirt?
No, this is just a special thing, I guess.
How do you describe your style?
It definitely depends on mood. But I’m definitely a fan of the Grandpa sweater and Doc Martens.… I like menswear a lot. That’s where I get a lot of inspiration.
What kind of look are you planning for this spring?
It will change. In the winter, I prefer men’s clothing. But in spring and summer, I get girly and dress it up. I love print dresses. I’m also a big fan of “mom jeans” made into shorts. It’s very nostalgic, but I love it.
