Street style: Anyone but Becky

As the Beyhive swarmed TCF Monday night, the folks of Minnesota showcased their Beyoncé best.

The last to arrive at the Met Gala and the first one whose outfit we want to see, Beyoncé is synonymous with style.

While the weather was a bit dicey, Monday night’s concert at TCF Bank Stadium showed that when it comes to fashion, the folks of Minneapolis know how to make lemonade out of any circumstance. Although quite a few “Not Becky” shirts were visible, most people let individuality shine in ensembles fit for Queen Bey.

Lakyra Clarke
Psychology student at St. Catherine University

What she wore: Urban Outfitters dress, thrifted jewelry, Wet Seal sandals, MAC lipstick in “Sin”

The gladiator sandal is very trendy right now, but because people often just throw it on to be “stylish” it can be easily overdone. Clarke does a great job of seamlessly integrating it into her outfit with the focus on her dress.

A dark lipstick in spring can come off intense, but the way the color contrasts with the dress while bringing out detail in the pattern is lovely.

Gold bracelets add flair to what could be worn as a simple sundress. And that hair? Swoon.

Davonte Logan
Human Resources at Hewlett-Packard

What he wore: Topman shirt, Nordstrom T-shirt, Marshalls pants, Calvin Klein shoes, Michael Kors watch.

Beyoncé is no stranger to the art of denim on denim, and Logan pulls the look off perfectly. While the trick is varying shades, Logan exhibits his mastery in the different textures throughout his outfit.

The white shoes and undershirt pull together what could be considered an overwhelming look. A watch adds the perfect amount of flair.

Tarell Patterson
Cashier at Chipotle

What he wore: Necklaces and blazer borrowed from friend, Forever 21 hat, purse borrowed from sister, H&M boots, leggings and shirt, Sephora makeup.

While this look is eye-catching from a distance (I had to chase Patterson down after seeing him across the street), the details are what really draw you in.

The particular height of the combat boots is not common, yet their pairing with Patterson’s leggings shows that there could be no plausible alternative.

While many would be weary of wearing both together, the blazer and hat pairing is elegant.

The chunky gold necklaces add flavor and panache to an already sophisticated ensemble.

I have yet to come across better brows.

Jordan Wolter
Technical designer for nursery bedding at Trend Lab

What she wore: ASOS bodysuit, thrifted skirt, GoJane shoes, Target earrings, Lime Crime lipstick in “Trouble”

I have had plenty of conversations recently about the correct way to wear a bodysuit — and it looks like I found an answer.

The black shoes, bodysuit and clutch unify the look from head to toe; together these separate pieces form an ideal entity. While you can never go wrong wearing all black, Wolter freshens up the trend with her skirt and lipstick.

Silver hoops are playful yet refined. A slick half pony is perfect for a humid night of dancing.

“Six inch heels, she walked in the club like nobody’s business,” Beyoncé sings in “6 Inch.” Wolter enters TCF in a similar style — Bey would be so very proud.
