The Cool Kids

She’s the kind of girl that rolls out of bed looking like the cover of a magazine. You secretly hate her but you want to be her. You click to follow her but you don’t heart any of her pictures. She’s too cool to care. She’s got that laidback cool attitude with an I-woke-up-and-threw-this-on look. You follow her on Instagram to get tips on what to wear and how to pair items to look ironically put together in an untogether way. She works in fashion or design but she’s always out. She’s invited to all the top events. Her square frames are your escape to places you’d wished you’d been. She’s not a model, but they pay her to wear their labels. She’s an InstaDream, an overnight sensation that didn’t realize she’d become a “celebrity.” 

Yawn… She’s just another girl who’s got you all fooled. Welcome to modern day advertising people, the root of social media. 

But wait there is hope. Social media and blogging is not all hype and unrealistic expectations. You may eat before you photograph yourselves in these items. You may stand at any angle and who knows maybe someone you know might even click the little heart button and like your picture. Gasp.

To get the off-duty model look you’ll want to invest in a great plaid shirt. Anything from 90’s grunge to modern plaid prints need a space in your wardrobe. These can be worn over a tee or buttoned up for a more structured look. Don’t forget to try layering a few different plaids you might be surprised at how cool they look on top of each other. Team this great shirt with a pair of ripped jeans and some cool kicks. Or go for something a little edgier like a leather skirt and some over-the-knee boots. Plaid is fab so stick with it.
