The 22 Pieces That Lure Street-Style Photographers

By

For all of the talk about how street style has become a circus that inspires hate-watching, if the latest couture season was any indication, everyone is still dressing up. And they should, because it would be terribly boring not to see people in weird hats, colorful shoes, and amazing bags. To earn your place among the likes of Anna Dello Russo, Taylor Tomasi-Hill, and Miroslava Duma, who have access to clothes before they hit the runway, it's all about strategic purchases. Brands like Ostwald Helgason and Sophia Webster are known for their allure to photographers. Highly recognizable items — anything with Kenzo's eye print or 3.1 Phillip Lim's embellished Sono Mama is also a guaranteed lure — add instant designer cred. And it's not just expensive clothes that serve as bait; a great pair of reflective sunglasses by Les Specs or a quirky hat by Bernstock Speirs are just as appealing. Click ahead to see all of these and more before placing your bets on just how often you'll be spotting these pieces in the weeks ahead.
