I truly can’t thank all of our readers enough who visit the blog weekly, left comments, and those who patiently waited for Style Street to hit newsstands at the end of each month in the Extra section.
The leaders of our area’s style starts with the thrift-savvy students and young professionals. With limited shopping options locally, it seems the go-to place for young adults are thrift stores. Youth has its advantages, but the other stars of the show are our residents over 40, proving there is no age limit on style and beauty.
Southwest Virginia may never become a high fashion capital but the style in our area is uniquely ours and I see a trend of people wanting to be more comfortable instead of conforming to what is fashionable right now. Ultimately I aim to be as open minded as possible so my content doesn’t become predictable.
I’m looking forward to another great year of walking the streets in search of street style. My goals is to visit more areas outside of Roanoke and Blacksburg, and hope to see the men’s fashion in our area progress a bit.
We’ve made several changes since Style Street’s inception last July, most of which came from your comments. Now that we’re headed into a new year, what else would you like to see from Style Street?
