Well, for REAL STREET STYLE in Buenos Aires (not Susana anymore..), here's a picture taken by me, at Buenos Aires Fashion Week. She was a photographer. My camera is pretty bad, so you can't appreciate the shine of her sequin shirt, that was gorgeous!

And another one, a bit far.. lol, but you still can see her outfit if you enlarge. Also at BAF, taken by me.

Love the girl in Isabel Marant.
wonder if she's a tourist.. or industry insider... cause Marant isn't available in Argentina, right?.

I was reading a city guide / article thing in Lucky about Argentina trends + shopping...
Needless to say, I'd love to visit...

The overall vibe feels very care-free and effortless, much like Parisian street style..
Very nice. Thanks for the pictures everyone...

At first you'll think that is great , atfer being a while here you'll realize everyone has the same style and the word "effortless" will vanish to become "trying hard"

Yes Argentina has a great style but not close to Parisian, still there's lack of elegant fashion style, of course there are some with amazing style but counted

I blame it in the lack of international designer stores

^ that's very true, mademoiselle.

One thing that I do admire regarding their style is actually the lack of big clothing chains, especially high-end stores, even though there's Zara and local stores that people basically devour, it's still very far from being the place where you walk into the subway or a bar and you can spot head-to-toe H&M, or that Forever21/UO skirt everyone bought and combined just like the model in the ad.. people here consciously or unconsciously tend to have a bit more individualism in the way they dress because they have not been exposed to true consumerism like we do in the north.. not saying that they like it this way, I've spotted a number of girls that look like they'd rob an entire American Apparel store if they only had one and not just follow it via internet, but I like that there's still a bit of a struggle in the creation of your look, whether it is your own idea or not, at least the garments keep some kind of identity.
Hope that makes sense, it's still early for me.

love buenos aires
but i feel young portenos dont dress up to their full potential. great looking people+cool local designers+beautiful city = amazing potential. still, no matter how european the city is, porteno streetstyle has a lot of catching up to do with new york, paris, london, amsterdam, stockholm,etc.
also i think the market in BsAs is big enough to have local designers coexist with international ones. personally i think the arrival of AA in Argentina wouldnt hurt.

I agree with all of your three points of view.
mademoiselle makes a great point. Since i was born here, i don't think i'll ever say 'oh yes, argentineans have a great style'. I see people everyday that to me have a good sense of style, but it's the minority compared to the rest.
I do agree with Boluda too. There's a lot of potential and resources for people to use in their own ways, but somehow it doesn't translate to what i see everyday.
Unlike MulletProof said, there're girls that the minute you see them, you can tell what brand they're wearing, or what kind of brands they would wear, but i guess that's because i live here. But like she said, it could be a lot worse.

Overall i just feel that there's people who doesn't really care about what they wear and buy whatever they see in a store; others who do care but buy whatever they like combining stuff in the most unexpected ways (that's not in a good way) without considering their body-type; and the ones who care and just try way too hard. But like everywhere else, there's a good number of people who 'do things right' and that's who you're gonna see on Argentina street style blogs or magazines.

in my opinion, i see buenos aires as a place where people don't get formally dressed up anymore. everything is so casual and the people who take risks with their clothes are VERY few.. we are missing a little bit of originality, and the funny part is that it is a city full of inspiration!

I must agree with solg, i cannot say i like the way argentinians dress. Maybe its because i live here... but i think its because dont matter how "european" we are, if you take risks with clothing, everybody will look up to you (in a bad way).. that's what i see everyday, specially here in La Plata, i know its not Buenos Aires but...
And most important... you need A LOT of money to buy nice clothes/shoes/bags here.

More often that I wish for, I find clothes in men´s stores that I truly love. But their cut is meant for men so I can´t buy any
