Caroline Styles


'grandfather blazers' as I like to call them. Wear them with a pocket watch and a cigar hanging out of your mouth to complete the look : )


Vintage luggage is the COOLEST luggage

Enough said

NICE bowtie/ribbony thingamabob (it's fun to make up words)

Shirt tucked in. I always tuck in my shirts, looks much nicer that way.

'creeper smile'

J.W. Anderson CREEPERS.


It is difficult to draw these

ANYWAY, creepers. They're awesome because they make you super tall and they're just plain rad.

(Circle) skirt

These skirts are great with

I wish that was me in OXFORD HEAVEN

SPIKED OXFORDS (Badass AND classy)

They could serve as a weapon...
(Truth or Dare shoes by Madonna)

Snazzy Chanel shoes


This is a piece of velvet from an old dress that I 'upcycled'. It's a beautiful deep blue velvet!

(pardon the arm)

I'm on the hunt for a cape coat. They'e so FLOWY and WHIMSICAL.

I got a bowler hat from HM that looks SHARP

velvet circle skirt is even BETTER

Fall= time to take out your tights.

Black flats are a MUST

Fall is a great time to capture the beauty as NATURE. I'm thinking of getting myself a used Olympus Evolt e420... I enjoy photography and I need a camera...


My everyday makeup routine is the "cat eye"

Red lips are a CLASSIC

CREEPY, just in time for HALLOWEN*"

From now on Chicago Looks is proud to present a collaboration with some of the city's most stylish inhabitants, who will be sharing their views on all things aesthetic. This week is Caroline's turn. Read more about her below: 

"Hello, my name is Caroline. I must admit, I find the task of creating a description about myself is quite difficult. I mean, how am I, or anyone for that matter, supposed to write a few lines about who we are, when in reality we are... A LOT OF THINGS. So I guess the best way to do this is simply to name a few of my interests, a few, because I have many. Anyway, I have to give credit for for being such a huge inspiration to me. Through Rookie, I have branched out to find and do so many new things. I hit a road bump in my life and I was so frazzled, trying desperately to figure out who I was, and in doing so I was everything I wasn't. I'm still a teenager, so I still haven't exactly figured out 100% WHO I am, but I'm getting there. I'm sure there's adults out there who are still figuring themselves out too. What I do know about myself is this: I love style. It's a great feeling to get up in the morning and to try on a bunch of different outfits that I find represent who I am (or who I'm slowly finding) and then rush to get ready because the bus is going to come soon. Besides the obvious fashion aspect of my interests I enjoy photography as well. I think I'm going to buy a used Olympus Evolt 420 on Amazon. To give you a bit more about me I like to: play the violin, make crafts (particularly with felt, buttons, and ribbons), ride my bike (I need a new one, a bigger one), explore (I live in a suburban town so it's not that exciting, but i have found some neat places, I also like to go to the city to explore), go shopping (thrift stores and cheap clothes are where it's at), and take my dog for walks (she's a lessthanfivepound chihuahua miniature pinscher mix, her name's Harley). I also love flowers (especially putting them in my hair) anything vintage (old books smell wonderful), and animals (how can you not love them?). My goal is to make a blog about me filled with all of things things and more, and I'm looking to start it during winter break. So, although I may not have a blog right now...look for one coming in the near future:)"

GOT IT? I did. See how Caroline models her words of wisdom here and here.
