Street style may feel repetitive these days, but that doesn’t mean fashion people have gotten boring. In a new series, we’re highlighting the insiders whose personal style always inspires us.
Fashionista deputy editor Tyler McCall always stands out in a crowded room full of fashunnn types. McCall’s job takes her to all four fashion weeks, where she attends shows like Chanel, Erdem, and Oscar de la Renta. But while everyone else is wearing whatever might be currently trendy (Dad sneakers! Vetements! Tiny matrix sunglasses!), McCall never falls into those traps. Her unabashedly girlie style combines equal parts rainbow stripes and pink feathers, with a dash of glitter to round it out. Best of all, it’s democratic — she loves LOFT and Kate Spade as much as she does Chanel and Marc Jacobs.
