University of Thessaly Street Style

I have long admired street style blogs like The Sartorialist and Facehunter, as they combine all of my favourite subjects: utterly stylish everyday people, great photography and street culture from cities all over the world. I also admire the street style photographer's ability to achieve a next-to-perfect result in circumstances far from ideal. When it was raining cats and cogs during the latest New York Fashion Week, Scott Schuman wasn't intimidated. The broken umbrellas, water drops on clothes or a newspaper used as protection from the rain made his pictures even more beautiful and real. I have searched the web for the greek equivalent but I only came upon Athens Wears, which as hopefull as it sounds, actually isn't a street style blog and most importantly isn't updated often enough for my liking. I even contemplated that maybe Greece simply doesn't have enough stylish people to feed a street style blog. But yesterday, as I was lounging the day away under the campus trees, I realised that in fact a lot of stylish people passed in front of my eyes. In the small greek city of Volos. Some of them even were friends of mine that I hadn't realised were so good dressers. So out came the camera and here are the results:As you can see my friend V wasn't as eager to show her face as my friend A, so her request was granted and the face in question was covered. In the middle Thodoris is rocking some stripes, and in the last picture we have my very stylish and musically talented friend Larry Gus.
