These Stylist Tricks Make Clothes Look Amazing in Photos and IRL

It takes a special talent to style a runway show for a major fashion week. Yes, the new collection of clothing may take center stage, but a stylist is a person who helps showcase how to wear it. They're also the ones who know how to make the clothes look great walking down a runway (or street) or captured forever in a photograph. That's the kind of styling advice we can get behind, too.

With this in mind, we asked Ronald Burton III to share some of his tricks of the trade. Fresh off having styled Claudia Li's first runway show this New York Fashion Week, he told us a few of his favorite ways to piece outfits together that always look as impressive in a photo as they do in the flesh. What's more, Burton's tips also pair unexpected pieces that you may have not considered could "go" together.

Below, take a look at the tips we're stealing for our own wardrobes ASAP.
