“My tops are from an Italian brand called Naked Fashion. My shoes are from Shop Akira, and my jewelry is from Aurelie Gi. I believe fashion is a beautiful form of art. Our individual styles say a lot about ourselves. I love people-watching in NYC. We’re all different and it amazes me!”

“I’m wearing L’agence and Chanel. I dress based on my mood and how I want to come off — that is, what attributes do I want to portray? Take for instance this outfit: There’s nothing more confident-boosting than a power suit, right? But I also want to communicate my love for fashion, so I played with the prints.”

“I’m wearing vintage with a Silvae top and Paloma Wool boots. I like to dress with a focus on sustainability and ethics, and keep my look elevated but still playful. Fine art inspires my style: Rodin, Picasso, Matisse, Klimt. I went to school for art history and that influenced it a lot.”

“I’m wearing custom-made look and shoes, BOYY bag, and Bronté Amsterdam hat. I love sophisticated and colorful preppy looks. I’m inspired by the total opposite of the current market trends of les beiges!”

“Wearing: vintage boots and bag, Maggie Marilyn coat, old Mr. Larkin turtleneck, the Summer House dress, and a Limnia earring. My style philosophy: If you’re not going to get at least 30 wears out of something, don’t buy it. What inspires my style: secondhand shops, small brands that do their research about their environmental footprint, and my friend Jack.”

“I’m wearing a Coach moto jacket (personally deconstructed), Area FW 19 pants, a True Violet top, Mango leather boots, Gucci shades, and a 3.1 Phillip Lim purse. I’d say everyone should pay attention to material quality, find a tailor, and be versatile. I get inspired by materials and garment design and construction.”

“I’m wearing a Rejina Pyo hat (borrowed), Ganni coat (borrowed), Holiday the Label pants, Labucq boots, and a Baggu bag. Style shifts and evolves the same way you do. Dress how you feel and don’t think you have to commit to one specific style. I always try to plan my outfits ahead of time, but when I wake up in the morning I scrap the whole thing and end up wearing something completely different. Today I’m inspired by an older lady I saw biking down Sixth Avenue with pink hair, dropping off her compost in a bin.”

“I’m wearing Burberry trench, Acne sweater, Dior button-down, Carolina Herrera men’s slacks, Balenciaga sneakers, and GoYard Bag. My style philosophy: Keep it simple, stupid! I believe in dressing in a style that only you as the individual could pull off. That’s very hard to do these days.”

“I am wearing a thrifted print jacket, a utility leather jacket from I Saw It First, a mesh bodysuit from Missguided, a scarf from Mango, sunglasses from Prettylittlething, an ASOS clutch, I Am Gia cargo pants, and a pair of boots from Russell & Bromley. I love to style pieces in unconventional ways. My personal philosophy is that if it’s the first styling idea that comes to mind, then there’s probably room to tweak the look and take it to the next level. I love to play with texture, prints, and details. More is more!”
