"My style tries to balance work and park appropriate. For the summer that means slightly oversized shirts, and slim, cropped pants paired with black oxfords or tan brogues."
"I don't really know that much about fashion, but I like clean lines and simple patterns -- nothing too ornate. My parents are from Hong Kong, so I get to travel there pretty often and shop. I got this blouse from there."

"My style today is very much inspired by the Thom Browne Lookbook for Spring/Summer 2013. The short pants... the smoking slippers -- they're more chic than the heavy Oxford that you're seeing a lot nowadays. Thom Browne's style is simple and comfortable. It doesn't look fussy. I never want to look fussy. Men's wear doesn't need to be fussy."
Shane's James Dean look previously appeared on TorontoVerve just last fall.

"My style is a little preppy, hippy and Montreal. The Montreal look is funky -- it has more danger and flair to it than Toronto. I get fashion inspiration from any fine looking Black woman walking down the street, on TV or in the music industry. Of course, I love my Beyonce. My style is like hers, but with a tomboy kick to it."

"My style is patterned after 80's music and film culture."
Chris paints, designs and occassionally models.
Chris' website, Chris Cann Paint, showcases his acrylic paintings on mixed media canvases such as other panel, found wood and actual canvas. He describes his paintings as "post impressionism mixed with symbolism." According to Chris, "those two things combined are important because now a lot of things lack interest and meaning. Some artists push modern and contemporary, but it's already been done, and I find it cold. It's also a bit of alchemy -- finding things and working with them--like food and art. It all comes together. And, no one should purchase anything. Things should be half found and half purchased; otherwise, it takes away the innovation."

Now that the weather's getting warmer, I've been seeing a lot of TorontoVerve's past street stylers walking about -- still looking fashionable. I shot Ron's cool urban look just last summer.
"My style is very Asian influenced -- mostly from Korea."

Curbside Cycle on Bloor is my store of choice when it comes to servicing my bike, and it was during my recent visit when Kendra's sharp appearance quickly caught my attention. Kendra is one Curbside's courteous staff and she was gracious to pose for TorontoVerve with this dashing Linus bike.
Kendra: "I like functional apparel. I try to go for simple and practical while still feeling put together. Hair is important to me -- I like having something that's clean and easy to maintain. Overall, I like to look comfortable but not sloppy."
Kendra also had some good things to say about the bike.
"It's a Linus -- the line is Dutchi. It has a nice relaxed and upright frame with a 3-speed internal hub. It's a nice good looking ride."

"Actress Barbara Stanwyck and rocker David Bowie inspire my style because they're fabulous divas and they don't give a shit."
Coincidentally, we've captured Madeleine's vintage street style last winter in Kensington Market.

Garrett: "I shop at a lot of vintage stores and base my style off fashion blogs."
Sheldon: "I like to wear blazers with loose fit T's and skinnies. Lookbook inspires my style."
Brodie: "I like denim and I stay away from colour."

"My fashion is always changing. I like dressing up in different styles. It's a mishmash of new and old -- colours and textures. The things I see everyday inspire me."
I previously captured Saira's thrifty street style over two years ago in Kensington Market.
