Critics say this city has no style. We’re here to prove them wrong. Welcome to HubThreads, where we chat with the most stylish people we find out and about in Boston. Think you or someone you know has the best street style? Let us know.


Where are you from? Belgium.

Are you traveling anywhere beside Boston? We went to Rockport and Manchester-by-the-Sea and now we’re in Boston for four days.

Have you been here before? It’s my first time, but my husband, no, he’s been here before.

Do you feel like you passed your style on to your daughter?  Well, she chooses her own clothes.

Whats her style? She’s not a Disney girl, its not puppy princess style, its kind of rough, but with a sweet touch. If anyone else is wearing it, she doesn’t want to wear it. She just always has to be special.

How would you describe your style? Do I have a style Noor? I guess whatever fits, is easy and not too dressed up, comfortable.

Did you ever model? No! I don’t read beauty magazines or fashion magazines, they only make you feel ugly and fat.

What are some of the highlights of your trip so far? We went to the Celtics yesterday, we went to Concord, to Bunker Hill. We did a lot of American history stuff for my son.

Are you looking at colleges for your son? We’re going to Harvard and MIT, but we’re not getting in there.

You never know!
