If you haven't yet heard of the strikingly beautiful and timelessly stylish Veronika Heilbrunner, I suggest you take the time to melt over her features on The Coveteur, where she can be seen either flying solo or side-by-side with her love, Justin O'Shea (who is just as big of a fashion phenomenon, might I add?). Currently the style editor at Harper's Bazaar Germany, Veronika is known and applauded for many things, but our personal favorite is her effortless way of making a dress—of any length, style, or color—look painstakingly cool.
You'll rarely see this street style starlet stepping out in a pair of stilettos, as her footwear arsenal of choice consists of sneakers or flat boots. Chunky sandals and leather brogues make their fair share of appearances as well, along with athletic-inspired socks, oversize coats, and tons of standout accessories. I know—she quite possibly could be one of the most interesting women in fashion.
With that said, hopefully we have sold you on why she's worthy of turning to for expert styling advice in the dress department.
