It’s that time of year again. While the masses freeze and frolic amidst snow and models rushing between shows, fashion’s elite slay and stay cozy in tents, Snapchatting, Instagraming and IM-ing to the envy of those less fortunate.
Enter Fashion Week. I used to really look forward to the shows, refreshing Vogue.com like a lunatic, eagerly waiting for images from my favourite designers to be released. I’d lust over Alexander Wang, 3.1 Philip Lim and Louis Vuitton, saving my favourite looks on my phone in hopes that one day, I’d be able to achieve a semblance of such coolness.
But that was five years ago, when I didn’t have to think about things like grocery and utility bills, and could actually afford to splurge. These days, I’d like to think of myself as wiser, taking to Instagram for my style inspirations instead. For one, looks by style bloggers tend to be more relatable and manageable, and it’s easy to find cheaper alternatives of what they’re wearing.
Check out these fashionistas who are killing it with their NYFW looks.
Singer Jessi Malay doesn’t just have an amazing voice – her wardrobe options aren’t too shabby either! I love how comfortable and stylish her outfits look. That getup in the middle? #goals
Rosyl Mejia is definitely one to follow if you’re looking to inject some variety into your #OOTD. She rocks everything from sleek monotones to Harajuku-esque styles so well, it almost makes you believe you could pull off similar looks as effortlessly.
