5 Habits of the Most Fashionable People

While we're all technically considered "fashion girls"—c'mon, we all read this site religiously, right?—there are a few factors that separate the truly fashion-obsessed girls from the pack.

To pinpoint the habits of these style chicks, we tapped celebrity stylist Alex Sweterlitsch (the man behind It girl Hannah Bronfman's style) to provide the styling tricks the most fashionable women practice and understand.

Keep scrolling to see if your wardrobe tricks made the list or grab some new inspiration to stand out from the crowd tomorrow. Plus, go a bit further to shop some of the best fashion-girl finds of the moment.

1. Always Belt It, Cuff It, and Pop It

"Finishing details add dimension. Pants and sleeves should be cuffed, belts create contrast, and bright colours get attention."

2. Have the It-Girl Accessory

"Every season there is that one It thing that everyone seems to be wearing. One season it’s Ann Demeulemeester lace-up heels; the next season it’s the Fendi fur buggies. You’ll be able to spot it in a second."

3. Learn (and Love!) to Layer

"It might be 80 degrees in NYC during September Fashion Week, but you best believe you’ll be putting a button-up shirt under that bustier, tying a shirt around your waist, or wearing a miniskirt over a maxi skirt. This is how people know you own a lot of clothes."

4. Send a Message to Build Your Brand

"Custom clutches, jackets, or nameplate necklaces with your name or Twitter handle offer a fashionable way to gain followers."

5. Embrace the (Not) Hands-Free Accessories

"Ever notice how girls outside fashion shows always seem to have an iPhone, bright planner, sunglasses, and an interesting clutch in the same hand? This is like drawing a bull’s-eye target for street style photographers."
