A group of people who work closely in the fashion industry, fashion editors are the stylish individuals to look up to as they keep track, forecast, and shape the hottest fashion trends in the world. Looking for inspirations on how to dress like fashion editors? Let’s take a cue from a New York-based fashion and lifestyle editor Christina Pérez who has written for known fashion websites like Refinery29, Fashionista, The Zoe Report, Glamour, PopSugar, and other after-sought sites for fashion advice.
Upon looking at Christina’s fashion style, we can say that her style gravitates towards that girl-next-door look with a great blend of coolness and youthful feel that we all try to achieve. Professional, understated, and simple, Christina’s style consists of pieces with clean lines and character highlighting only one key piece of her outfit. Even with a pair of jeans matched with a chic button-down shirt, she always looks dressed up and never looked casual. According to her, styling is everything. For where the difference between an outfit looking okay and an outfit looking amazing lies in making small tweaks whether it’s tucking in a shirt, cuffing your jeans, rolling up the sleeves, letting cuffs peek out from a jacket, or even unbuttoning an extra button on your shirt.
Christina pulled off the sport-chic style perfectly by wearing just a pair of sweatpants, chic button-down shirt, casual jacket, and a pair of slip-on sneakers. It’s polished but unfussy, and the silhouette of the pants gave her the laid back feel without looking underdressed.
For an edgy yet chic statement, Christina creatively paired her leather ensembles with feminine print ensembles to make them look chic and balanced. As we can say, she really knows how to highlight one key piece in her outfit without overshadowing the rest. One great thing about Christina’s style, it always perfectly dressed for the occasion. When she’s heading for an activity that calls for a dressy casual look, she’ll wear her laid-back, but dressy footwear, while a pair of sneakers is her favorite pick when running errands.
As we can see on Christina’s dressy outfits, she is a fan of prints but never clash them together. The chic fashion editor knows how to look professional in bringing out your outfit’s key pieces whether it’s a chevron dress with black coat combination, or a preppy colored top with a breezy feminine skirt.
If you’re looking for winter outfit inspiration, let’s have some clue on Christina’s layering skills. If you just think of coat, jackets, and blazers to top your sweater and skirt combination, you need to be more creative and innovative on your style. Christina creatively wore a black tee and topped it with an asymmetrical dress that looked chic and demure. So, if you feel bandeau tops and crop tops are not for you, try wearing a basic tee underneath your sexy top first, before giving it away.
