We've picked the highest-ranked Street Scenes subjects of the past week from Racked LA and Racked NY; now you decide which coast has the best style.
On the left, we have our LA contender Antonella (42.9% Perfection!/ 9.1% So close/ 29.9% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 18.2% Who did this to you?) wearing a Madewell top, a scarf from Cambodia, American Apparel leggings, Aldo boots, and a Michael Kors gold watch.
On the right, we have our NYC contender Edward (50.0% Perfection!/ 18.1% So close/ 13.3% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 18.6% Who did this to you?) wearing a Zara blazer, a Rogan t-shirt, and Ksubi jeans. His shoes are vintage, his glasses are Selima, and his bracelets are from Noir, St. Mark's Place, Topman, H&M and Surface to Air. His favorite store is Seven New York.
