The weather in Brooklyn this week has been a little bit of a drama queen. Blowing hot and then cold, like every bad Tinder relationship we’ve been in. The oscillating temperatures have made the streets of Brooklyn home to many different looks and styles. One theme I saw emerging though was color. It’s not a rainbow out there yet, but little pops of color were springing up all over the place.

Above, these three were grabbing a smoke outside of a coffee shop and looked like something from the East Village circa 1960. They are all rocking the vintage vibe perfectly. “I have to”, the girl in the center told me, “I’m a barista – I make $10 an hour”.

Check out these other stylish kids spotted around Bed-Stuy and Bushwick.

How darling is this all pink fashionista? The ice-cream sunglasses and purse are so much fun and a great little nod to the upcoming spring. Dig the gold boots too.

Another splash of pink, this time paired with a soft grey. This whole look felt very spring like, yet cozy. Perfect for the transitional months.

I caught these sisters on the Myrtle Ave platform. How cute are their complimentary outfits and matching bangs? They look like they should be a pop duo (maybe they are!).

Oooh white leather. I was totally drooling over this biker jacket – cool and hot at the same time!

This girl brings her own sunshine to a cloudy day. The hair is everything.

The honeycomb pattern of this coat lifted it out of being ordinary and into something fly. Perfectly Brooklyn when paired with ripped up skinny jeans and sneakers.

Oh gosh how fantastic is this color? I love how this guy paired his beautiful suit with a shirt and cardigan combination, taking what could be a corporate look and making it feel more arty and individual.

  1. May I offer an alternative title for this post? “White People: Whimsically Displacing Communities of Color for Centuries”

  2. Did Brokelyn seriously add a photo of a black woman after the above comments were posted? WOW. Did you learn journalistic ethics from watching Gaslight?
