Remixing Chicago Street Art and Fashion
No one does Chicago street style quite like Jennifer Lake.
As a fashion blogger — and public relations Senior Vice President at Zapwater — Jennifer Lake has amassed a loyal Instagram following of 144,000 engaged fans (and growing). Beyond her fashion-forward outfits, the focus of Lake’s content is often Chicago street art. From River North to Ravenwood, Humboldt Park to Lincoln Park, Pilsen to Andersonsville and beyond, Jennifer Lake covers some serious ground.
Lake is a born and raised Chicagoan, and draws inspiration from our city’s neighborhoods, artists and institutions. She says, “Chicago is an instant source of inspiration, and our cultural institutions became my creative playground. I love visiting and soaking up everything around me… Chicago is such a liveable city – fantastic public transportation, amazing neighborhoods, and of course – phenomenal food, art, sports, and fashion.”
If you glance at Lake’s playful Instagram feed, you’ll notice a colorful array of Chicago murals and street art that’ll leave you asking… “Where is that?” Lucky for us, Lake has documented a Chicago Wall Guide on her fashion blog, Style Charade.
