Chicago is a fine city made even finer by the current transitional season weather, which turns the city with the Magnificent Mile into something truly spectacular. We're talking about the beauty, of course. (Sorry, architect fiends!)
We set out in search of the best street beauty looks the Windy City has to offer and came back to New York wondering whether we left our punk hearts on Lake Shore Drive. Seriously, Chicagoans know how to pair a bold lip with equally bombastic hair. Whoever said loud hair means you must simplify your makeup should walk through Chicago's surrounding neighborhoods because these beauties make it work. Now, where are those old jars of hair dye again? We need something to really complement our colorful lipstick.
