From bold prints to lighter layers, Michiganders are springing into style this March (mostly from the comfort of their living rooms — #stayhome). Check out SEEN’s 7 favorite “street”-style looks this month
By Chelsie Dzbanski

3. Sam B.
If you’re a fan of Netflix’s “Rhythm and Flow” (think “American Idol” with a hip-hop twist) then you probably recognize Sam B.’s face. The Grosse Pointe native, aka Sam B Yourself, rapped, battled and freestyled his way through the show, impressing big-name judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. While Sam (who’s also a producer) didn’t win the overall competition, he continues to pump out fire bars, beats and videos on his Instagram account @sambeyourself and on Youtube, along with some killer street style looks that always include his favorite accessory — a hat.
