Sidewalk Style: Leather and Leggings

We stopped a woman whose unique hairstyle and love for leggings and vintage got us thinking.

Tatyana Ellis, 24
H&M employee

What she’s wearing: H&M jacket and leggings, Urban Outfitters T-shirt and shoes, Forever 21 necklace, and a necklace from her mother. The bag was a gift, and the glasses are by Barcelona.

Do you get a lot of questions about your hair?
“I do. It’s just easier to have half a head of hair. It’s still feminine, but it’s like a short haircut.”

Tell me about your style.
“Free. A little vintage on a good day. Leggings are a staple. I mix it up with the tops and shoes, but I wear leggings a lot. Leggings and a shirt, and I’m out the door.”

Where do you shop for leggings?
“I bought a few at a stand in the Pentagon City mall. I love the ones with the kneepads. They have silk panels and then kneepads. Sometimes we sell them at H&M.”What do you want to buy for the spring?
“Some more shoe booties.”

Rachel says: This girl gets serious style points for her hair. I love it—it’s an accessory that she never has to take off.
