    Another year, another SXSW for the books. Mother Nature brought out all the stops this season—rain, thunder, humidity, record heat, and bone-chilling nights—and the streets of Austin became a lesson in sartorial versatility. With all the music heads roaming, street style stalking was a colorful adventure that we didn't want to end. (If ever you want to find personalities with a capital P, look to the music scene.) 
    For more than a week, we waded through the mobs of 6th Street and along Congress Avenue. We rubbed elbows with some of the coolest rising acts and spotted a few resident favs along the way. Like all festivals, though, we were on the hunt for those anonymous folk who present themselves in a way that turns heads and make us reach for our camera. Sure, we had to evacuate some spaces during a massive storm, but hey, at least, nothing rained on our proverbial parade. Ahead, 16 of SX's best.
