New York Times blog The Local has started doing its own street style videos. The site, which covers the East Village with the help of aspiring journalists at NYU, interviews some locals—a hipster guy, a handbag designer, a woman in boyfriend jeans and a leopard-print scarf—about how they're dressing for fall. Explains the hipster, who is very relieved that the temperature finally dropped: "If I had to wear jean shorts and a tank top one more time, I probably would have killed myself." [The Local]
