WHIT­NEY MIDDLETON

Michigan Avenue - - THE SOURCE: STYLE -

WHO: Wardrobe stylist whose clients in­clude Chance the Rap­per (whit­ney middleton.com). HOME ’HOOD: “I stay in the pocket neigh­bor­hood of Ravenswood Gar­dens, on the North­west Side. I love that it’s off the radar and walk­ing dis­tance from my fa­vorite thrift stores.” GO-TO SPOT: “Pizza Art Cafe (4658 N. Rock­well St., 773-539-0645; piz­zaart­cafe.com), a cozy lit­tle BYOB Ital­ian spot with heap­ing plates of in­cred­i­ble pasta, br­uschetta on pita bread, and a dish called Lasagna ‘ART’ that you just have to ex­pe­ri­ence.” HIDDEN GEM: Open Books Pilsen (905 W. 19th St., 312-243-9776; open-books.org/pilsen). “I love this spot for pick­ing up used reads, and prices are in­sanely low. Ev­ery sale di­rectly ben­e­fits their on­go­ing lit­er­acy pro­grams for chil­dren in the city.” AR­CHI­TEC­TURAL INSPO: “I’ve al­ways been a sucker for the Ma­rina Tow­ers (290 N. State St.)— they’re just so unique and so very ’60s. If I ever get a down­town pied-à-terre, it’ll be there.” PLANS FOR FALL: “I plan to ded­i­cate more of my time to men­tor­ship and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams for young Chicagoans. I love what So­cial Works (so­cial workschi.org) and My Fa­vorite Out­fit (my­fa­vorite­out­fit.org) are do­ing to help youth arts pro­grams.” FALL FASH­ION ES­SEN­TIAL: “An amaz­ing jacket for ev­ery tem­per­a­ture change. This sea­son I’m all about ’80s sil­hou­ettes: sharp, over­sized shoul­ders by Ba­len­ci­aga or real-deal vin­tage jack­ets from Koko­rokoko (1323 N. Mil­wau­kee Ave., 773-252-6996; koko­rokov­in­tage.com).”
