Street View: What People Are Wearing In Redfern, Sydney

Welcome to Street View, a fortnightly series where we document everyday people's style for outfit inspo purposes.
In this instalment, photographer Lexi Laphor hit the streets of Sydney's Redfern.
The central suburb has a long-standing Indigenous history, strong community ties and has seen a lot of rapid change in recent decades.
Similar to its fellow inner-city suburbs of Marrickville and Newtown, Redfern has a laid-back and creative vibe that extends to street art, public spaces and fashion.
On this particular Saturday afternoon, we spotted cherished designer finds paired with secondhand staples. For example, Bailey mixes high street with high-end in an oversized men's H&M shirt and Pucci trainers, while Maisie champions local designers and global street style alike, in a kaleidoscopic Wah-Wah Australia jumper and blue Levi's.
From the currently trending cargo pants to accessories borrowed from the wardrobe of Mum and Dad, this Redfern round-up will have you feeling sartorially inspired in no time.
Ahead, feast your eyes on some of the inner-city suburb's best street style.
