This Is What Turns Runway Trends Into Street Style Gold

Ever stared at someone, trying to pinpoint what it is that makes them so chic? When it's not as obvious as a designer slip-on, it can be hard to decipher exactly what was mixed and matched to create the covetable finish. Enter our new series, Mix Masters, dedicated to cracking the style code of our favorite It girls. We've teamed up with 7 for All Mankind to ensure that we address the one thing we all wear on rotation: denim. 

There's a lot to like when it comes to Charlotte Groeneveld's style—in particular, her knack for looking polished without giving the impression that she spent any time at all getting ready. The New York–based founder of is originally from the Netherlands, which is entirely unsurprising, given that Dutch girls rival Danes, Swedes, and Parisians for the title of Planet Earth's Most Stylish, Low-Key Babes.

Groeneveld is a fixture in fashion week galleries, and for good reason: She effortlessly combines runway trends with good old-fashioned practicality—the very definition of great street style. Her secret (which is entirely obvious when you scroll through her Instagram on a daily basis)? Really good jeans. I cornered Charlotte to find out which pair of jeans she can't live without—spoiler alert, it's 7 for All Mankind's b(air) denim—where she eats in New York, and what her denim-saving wash-cycle settings are.
