The weather was bright and breezy when we stopped outside the Kenmore Square T stop in search of stylish Bostonians. We encountered quite a few.
“I’m just at lunch,” said Larisa London, 44. The Newton resident works as a nurse at an area hospital but doesn’t let her occupation stifle her style. “It’s fun to dress up. I love it,” she said.
Vanessa Bossio, a 23-year-old accountant from Toronto, pulled from Topshop and Zara for her Boston visit with family.
Academic adviser Susannah Buzard, of Somerville, 38, said she was wearing a “mish-mash of reds and blacks and whites with a necklace from Montreal, a handbag my sister made me, and some mod glasses that I actually found at Whole Foods.”
Mariama Kallon and Morgan Taylor
Boston Arts Academy students Mariama Kallon (left) and Morgan Taylor, both 15, went trendy en route to the O’Bryant vs. TechBoston football game.
Gwendolyn Thompson, 29, of Western Massachusetts, told us, “I like to rock some suspenders. I’m trying to bring them back in style.”
Scott Monty and Edward Boches
Scott Monty, 43, of Detroit (left), and Edward Boches, 59, of Winchester, said their coordinated looks were purely coincidental. Former Boston resident Monty is the global head of digital communications at Ford Motor Company and was in town to speak at Boston University, where Boches is a professor of advertising at the College of Communication.
Christopher Beaton, 27, of Somerville, wore a novelty sweater to his shift at Eastern Standard.
“I’m actually wearing my mom’s jacket and purse — she knows, thank goodness. As a college graduate I need to do some shopping,” said Meghan Palmer, 22, of Franklin.
