Street Style: Noelle Sylvester

ss_July-web1

This month, our 17th Ave. Street Style Huntress, Aldona B., is all about the Canadiana. Catch up with Aldona as she talks style & substance with Noelle Sylvester, who’s does jean-on-jean the right way. 


Aldona B.: “The Canadian tuxedo. Sexy and cool, it’s a trend that’s been making a splash in the fashion world for some time, and appears to be staying put.

Here, Noelle Sylvester demonstrates her fresh and funky style with a denim shirt and jeans combo. What knocks her ensemble out of the park is the interplay between the two different shades of denim in two different fabrics.

Not only is she doing it right, but the look also works with her personal style aesthetic and desire to be comfortable and stylish.

She adds funky shades and neutral shoes to really make her denim pop.”

How would you describe your personal style? What stands out to you when you notice someone else’s personal style? 

“Bohème denim queen. Stylish comfort is what I admire about other people’s style.”

What do you think is the most important part of putting together an outfit?

“Comfort is the most important to me. Not just being physically comfortable, but an all-over comfort with the look; something you can throw on and don’t have to think about during the day.”
