Concrete jungle where sartorial street style dreams are made of

New York City is where anything goes. This lends itself to a playful sartorial energy that vibrates down its avenues and carries over to big events, like the annual Governors Ball on Randall's Island. This year, Gov Ball brought out characters from all over the map. Some went glam, while others went full punk. Even those who kept it simple in all black added that extra bit of New York flair with tattoos, super-saturated hair color, and more. There's always a bit of an intimidating edge to New York style, but that level of cool is also totally aspirational. In this city, it's all about attitude, and the following street style stars have it in spades. How very cool.
