Culture Trip’s on-the-ground photographers capture street-style looks from the world’s most fashionable cities.

From New York to Paris, there’s an unmistakeable energy found in the street-style set. Although there’s nothing quite like the fevered anticipation of a runway show, where designers spend anywhere from $15,000 to $60,000 for a 20-minute spectacle, sometimes grand-scale perfection doesn’t inspire as much as it overwhelms. Street style, on the other hand, offers spontaneous, accessible wardrobe lessons. Each of these cosmopolitan cities has its own sartorial tone, visible on the backs of its inhabitants. Inside each story, shop the looks with offerings available through H&M.
