Has Street Style Jumped The Shark?

Let's be honest — for people who really love fashion, "dressing for ourselves" is rarely the only M.O. We put together outfits, deck ourselves in the season's best accessories, and try out new trends because it's fun to share our enthusiasm for fashion with those that appreciate it.
Street style has taken that core idea — swapping, sharing, and engaging in conversation about that joy of dressing with other people — and made it something we can all be a part of, while eating breakfast in our pajamas. Starting with Bill Cunningham and ending with up-and-coming bloggers with their own point-and-shoot cameras, street style is an incredibly viral, incredibly instant, incredibly addictive facet of fashion that's changed lots of the ways in which fashion gets made and consumed.
But, with everyone getting in on the street-style game, is it special anymore? Is it real anymore? We take a look at the brief history of street style and investigate whether the medium is getting stale or if it still has legs.
