Caylee Willett of If You Seek Style
When you Google keywords such as “Chicago personal style blog” or “Chicago fashion blogger,” If You Seek Style won’t come up on the first page. But it should, right on top. Caylee Willett’s effortlessly contemporary look—achieved through a mix of select vintage and fast fashion finds—perfectly translates the coolness of Chicago’s hippest hoods. The fact that she’s not a fashion victim or a brand slave also evokes two very Midwestern traits: authenticity and a certain modesty, even though she has plenty to brag about. Caylee has collaborated with major brands such as Urban Outfitters and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Olsenboye; she has been featured on Teen Vogue, Elle and Glamour. She recently traveled to New York and Los Angeles thanks to the quality of her blog—all while keeping her day job as a manager at a local H&M.
