Fashion week is an exciting time in every young fashion lover's life. With hundreds of designers to follow and thousands of new garments to ogle, all eyes are on the runway. But while everyone's busy pinpointing their favorite outfits and copying makeup looks, we're paying about as much attention to another type of fashion week coverage: street style. Though the culture surrounding street style has changed in recent years, perhaps resulting in a less organic photo set, we still look forward to seeing what everyone wears to take in the shows. The clothes are our first focus when it comes to street style, but once you've been following it long enough, certain patterns emerge. While some street style models go stoic and matter-of-fact—much like the runway professionals—others go smiley or blogger-influenced. After some rigorous research (read: checking out our favorite street looks) we've come up with the 15 most usual suspects when it comes to street style poses. Is your personal favorite on the list?
