Chicago street style: Isabelle Andriessen

This exchange student gets her style inspiration from ‘90s movies.


 I like your outfit.
Oh, thanks. I’ve been wearing it the last five days. I just got to Chicago from Amsterdam, and my bag got lost between New York and Chicago. I hope it comes back because I have a great wardrobe in there.

Like what?
I’m really into long skirts and long dresses right now. Lots of black and translucent shirts. And silver! I bought a great silver translucent long-sleeve T-shirt with a hood. It’s very ’90s. You know the movie Hackers? That’s my latest inspiration.

What are your impressions of the fashion in Chicago so far?
Tricky question. I’m not so positive yet. I think Europe is a little ahead on fashion. Or maybe you guys have a different taste.
