The Real Girl's Guide To Dressing Like A Fashion Editor

As you’ve probably realized by our extensive coverage, no two fashion editors dress exactly alike.

Because of this, we’ve gathered an assortment of fashion editors in imitable outfits to illustrate the different looks and vibes you can recreate with pieces you probably already own.

​Click through for seven easy-to-try ensembles, and once you pick your fashion editor persona, don’t forget to shop the look!
