City of Neighborhoods: Touring Philly through Fashion

Llewellyn Drop Cap 1hiladelphia is a city of many distinct and contradicting neighborhoods. From Fishtown to Society Hill to West Philly, this city contains multitudes. Each trend covered below represents the vibe of a unique Philly neighborhood: athleisure with an edge for South Philly’s Broad Street, polished and trendy for upscale Rittenhouse Square, and boho chic for rustic Fishtown. Here’s how to look like a local in every locale around Quaker Town.

Goldtones and Contrasting Colors

Fishtown is known for being one of Philly’s more artistically inclined areas, full of free spirits and radical thinkers. We paired Niyathi’s Anthropologie top with jeans from Intermix and the stylist’s own gold choker. Her outfit is accented by gold toned make up and her own boots.

Girl Called Ana

We styled Ana in soft neutrals and free flowing hair to contrast Fishtown’s post-industrial landscape. The neutral look pairs well with the strength of the print on her Joan Shepp dress.

Rittenhouse Square

Fun in the Parc

Serena’s all black ensemble would be just as at home in New York’s trendiest neighborhoods as it is in ritzy Rittenhouse Square. This polished look has just enough edge to fit in in Philadelphia’s most elite neighborhood. Serena is styled in a jacket from Smak Parlour and jeans and a t-shirt of her own.

Breezy is the New Black

Who says spring style has to be all about florals? Serena’s black chiffon romper both stands out among the greenery of Rittenhouse Park and fits in among the crowds of Philly’s most high profile inhabitants. Serena is styled in a romper from Smak Parlour and boots of her own.

South Philly


Leisure with an Edge

South Philly’s famous Broad Street is where the city comes to play. We thought we would shake up this season’s athleisure trend by giving it a club-worthy edge. Brittany wears a mesh jacket from Joan Shepp, bra top from Intermix, and joggers from Piper.


Moto Mania

The LBD gets a comfy knit upgrade at South Philly’s iconic Dolphin Tavern. Paired with a distressed track jacket (pictured in title photo), this outfit is both comfy and club worthy. Sinzi wears a dress and track jacket from Intermix with her own boots.
