Street Style: Skaters groove to DJs at the Harbourfront Centre

The coolest club in the city Saturday night was also the coldest. For the season’s final DJ Skate Night, hundreds showed up to the Harbourfront Centre, skates in hand, to sip (possibly spiked) hot cocoa, channel their inner Kurt Browning and glide to the beats of spin-master Tony Touch. Since the evening was surprisingly mild, bundled-up looks were replaced with chic faux-fur vests, retro bomber jackets and lots of Canadiana. Here, 15 of our favourite looks.
