Alyssa in the City

4 months ago by

Alyssa’s style is interesting because it’s not just one thing. If you follow her on Instagram (as you should…) you’ll know her looks can go from being femme, colorful, and modern to downright edgy. And while her wardrobe is full of versatility, what I like most about Alyssa’s style is her confidence to commit.

Like her fully retro inspired ensemble above. Her cute vintage blouse is reinforced by thick gold hoops (rich in cultural and sartorial history), vintage inspired mom jeans that you either love or hate (I love), a Birkin style bag that needs no explanation, and a pair of Nike Cortez’s that are pleasantly and coincidentally patriotic (Happy Bastille Day!)

After all, what you wear should be an extension of who you are – even (especially) if that changes on a regular basis.

Alyssa is a fashion market editor at Refinery29. It’s probably clear by now that she sure knows how to put an outfit together. It’s also probably clear that she has a great Instagram that I definitely visit on days when I have a hard time getting dressed. And she has a bunny – cute!
