Here at CF, you’ve learned how to dress like designers, celebrities, and even interns. But what about those behind-the-scenes gears in the machine that is the fashion industry? The editors, photographers, PR managers, buyers, art directors, and the slew of other people that keep this business up and running?
In this new column, we’re looking at the styles of those front-row it-girls with jobs that “a million girls would kill for.”
Who is Annie?
Annie Georgia Greenberg is Refinery29‘s senior style editor. An intern’s dream, Annie got her start at Refinery29 at age 18 as the host of a web show, and, through her connections, worked her way up the ranks.
Today, Annie’s job consists of writing and editing articles, attending fashion shows, interviewing important people in the industry, and dressing in fun, unexpected, and on-trend outfits.
Annie describes her style as “feminedgy” and resourceful, often incorporating thrifted pieces in her outfits, and always trying to wear things in unexpected ways. As a style editor, it’s important for her to stay on-trend, too.
Check out these three borrowed-from-Annie looks to convince everyone that you’re on your way to fashion week.
Borrow Annie’s Governors Ball look for any weekend event. From a casual brunch to flea market hunting to a concert with friends, this casual outfit will take you wherever you need to go.
Start with the basics: denim high-waisted shorts, a black belt, and a striped crop top. Chelsea boots will keep your feet dry and comfy, and a moto jacket draped over your shoulders will keep you warm on windier nights. Tie on an on-trend bandana for a pop of contrast, grab a pair of chic clear sunglasses, and you’re ready for the weekend!
For an internship, interview, or summer office job, borrow Annie’s neutral but trendy work look. Start with a basic white oxford with the sleeves rolled up, tucked into a simple white skirt, kept on-trend with a scallop hem. Layer on an oversized vest, left undone. The vest should be longer than the skirt to play with proportions in a fun way.
Add on classic aviators and neutral ankle strap heels to keep the look classic. Finish with Annie’s signature red lip for a pop of color, as well as a trendy bucket bag to stay hands-free.
For that true “fashion girl” vibe, forgo the usual party dress for a pair of swingin’ culottes. Culottes are on-trend, and this flowy pair is great for dancing in. Balance out the volume of the bottoms with a tiny crop top. Finish the look off with strappy heels and a sparkly clutch to add some shine.
