Street Style Face-Off: NYC & Los Angeles Battle For Most Stylish City Status (VIDEO)

Street style coverage is ubiquitous these days, and understandably so. It's a never-ending resource for inspiration and self-expression. Naturally, both New York and Los Angeles are teeming with endless subjects to photograph thanks to thriving creative industries. We teamed up with Elisa and Lily from Stylelikeu to create a video that takes a deeper look at these two cities' respective take on style. While it seems those in L.A. favor hats and New York has a thing for black, a love of second-hand is mutually shared. Check out our video above, then click through more street style snaps below.
