Street Style: Jessica Galasso, 27


Des Moines



Where do you find style?

Everywhere! Thrift and vintage stores, art, culture, nature and eras past style icons.

What's the one thing you can't leave the house without?

Burt's Bees chapstick.

Who's your style icon?

Cher, Jane Birkin, and Solange.

What trend do you hate most at the moment?

Not a trend so much but just people trying too hard or wearing trends for trends sake even if it's not their style. I think people always look best when they didn't spend a million hours getting ready.

What's your favorite store?

Matilda Muse.

On a scale of 1-10, how fashionable would you rate DSM? Why?

I think there's a lot of creative people in Des Moines and it shows in the diversity of styles. I'd say 8.

Patio drinks after the farmers’ market and bike rides.

What's a fun fact about you?

I can say "You're so annoying" in the Fante language.

What is your favorite style accessory that sets you a part?

My turquoise motorcycle helmet.
