Dublin Fashion Street Style May 16
Street style has become as popular and sought after as the styles on the runway and it seems to be the way forward for raw, immediate and unique fashion. Check out our street style photos of some fashionable Dubliners on the streets of #DublinTown in the Creative Quarter in May.
Can we say it’s summer yet?? Here’s some more stylish photos of all y’all! Photos by Elaine Castro.
Sophie Van Weeren and Bert Van Laar (Dutch)
Sophie wears: Jacket and Dress-America Today, Cardigan-H&M, Sneakers-Nike.
Bert wears: Trousers and Shoes from Holland, Bow Tie bought in America and Coat from a Second Hand Store.
What they think of Dublin style: In all honesty they expected it to be more trashy. It’s a bit too much on night’s out in the city. Dublin is very European and so is its style but it’s hard to spot who’s a Dub and who’s not.
Stephen Bowes and Deirdre Fitzgerald
Stephen wears: T-shirt-Acne, Trousers-Cos, Hoodie-H&M.
What they think of Dublin style: It’s fine, quite homogeneous. It’s probably not good enough for European standards.
What she thinks of Dublin style: It has definitely improved. There’s far more choice now with the things we buy. We’ve moved to a more progressive time, it’s not just about being sexy anymore, it’s more about individuality.
Emma Casey and Rachael Murphy
Emma wears: Jacket, Top and Jeans from Urban Outfitters.
Rachael wears: Jacket-H&M, Jeans-Glassons, Boots-Senso, Bag-Marc Jacobs
What they think of Dublin style: They just returned home from living in Australia. When comparing it to Dublin Australia’s style seems a bit crisper. You can see that everyone makes an effort with their style in Dublin. There is a brilliant mix of high street and high end in Dublin.
Bree wears: Coat-Quin&Donnelly, Trousers-Gardeur, Shoes-Caravelle, Bag-Chloé, Sunglasses-Tiffany&Co.
What she thinks of Dublin style: Years ago Grafton street was the mecca of Dublin street style. The youth have adopted a new casual style. Bree’s generation are still dressing up. Life is too short. Why not dress up? Always dress for an occasion even when there may not be one. She also believes that you don’t have to spend money on style. ZARA is her proof of this. They are a quality high street store.
Emma wears: Dress and T-shirt from ASOS, Jacket-Vintage from George’s Arcade, Shoes-Doc Martins.
What she thinks of Dublin style: It’s very unique. You can see anything on the streets of Dublin.
What she thinks of Dublin style: It is more European now. It has definitely progressed. It does depend on where you are in Dublin city though.
Martin O’Neill and Jess Morris
What they think of Dublin style: It’s definitely getting better. Dublin style is evolving. It depends on what college you’re in and you can see different looks depending on what part of the city you’re in. Style can be based on the people you surround yourself with too. Men are really getting into fashion which is great to see.
