The style comes back with a vengeance on EXPO

Anyone who says people do not have much style in Chicago has no idea what they are talking about. I’ve been photographing street style here for over ten years and I know better. When Chicagoans decide to bring it, they bring it with gusto, authenticity and a lot of lightness from the Midwest.

It’s the kind of style that could be seen at EXPO Chicago this year: the best of the best, from Chicago and beyond. After a long break, the art audience was ready to show off their happiest clothes. Be it flashy or venerable, maximum or minimal, in colors or in neutral tones: the joy of dressing could be seen all around. The pictures in the slideshow below are here to show it.


EXPO Chicago’s 2022 version took place at Navy Pier in April. The next fair is scheduled for the 13th-16th. April 2023. See expochicago.com for more information.
