Street Style in #DublinTown
According to many Dublin folk, denim jackets, beards and checkered shirts are said to reign as the prevailing style of our fair city..
We joined street style photographer Elaine Castro for a gander around the streets to check the seriousness of this accusation! Surprisingly, when we hit the streets, we were greeted by a mirage of fabrics and colours far beyond the checkered shirts..
