SXSW Street Style: Keeping Austin Weird In 2013

Austin, Texas is home to some of the country's most bizarre folks and the city is proud of it.

During its SXSW festival the city's, and country's, weirdest swarm the downtown area flaunting their freak-flags with pride and chutzpah.

The city's unique style is highlighted best when denizens and patrons are given a stage to strut their stuff as music, media and technology industries combine for a two-week long extravaganza of creativity.

It's no wonder the city's unofficial slogan is "Keep Austin Weird." It is a cultural haven for the diverse, the eclectic, the experimental and non-traditionalists.

While HuffPost Weird News got down with NASA and sported some incredible LED fashion, the streets outside were also rampant with eye-catching style.
