You love clothes, you love shoes, you love bags—but above all, you love the lifestyle of fashion, from the extravagance of the parties to the chaotic frenzy backstage at runway shows , and everything in between.
And as card-carrying fashion girls, it’s time we all sit sat down and quickly go over the rules that keep us on-point and in-check from day to day. Keep scrolling to see the top 10 rules fashion girls should live by!
1. Gotta love Instagram: Fashion girls are obsessed with Instagram—whether it’s posting their own #ootds, shots from events, and snaps from parties, or just stalking the activities of other members of the style set. As such, your etiquette on Instagram is of the utmost importance—it’s never acceptable to be rude, shady, or just outright mean on the social media platform. That said, there are no hard-and-fast rules about likes for likes, follows for follows, and the like—feel free to curate your feed how you see fit, while always keeping in mind that what goes around comes around.
2. OMG OMG!: We’ve all been there—one unfortunate drop, and your phone screen looks like a mirror in front of Snow White’s Evil Queen. If this happens to you, your priority becomes fixing that screen as soon as humanly possible. Nothing looks more unprofessional or busted than having a cracked phone screen!
3. Keep the f %&^$# brand for your self: Listen, we get it: Sometimes you just want to flaunt all the designer goodies in your closet. Half the reason for dropping a ton of money on a bag is so you can show off that label—but in most instances, this is in poor taste. Besides, true fashion girls know what’s designer and what’s not, without needing a brand in their face.
4. Kind and proffesional: In fashion, the importance of being kind and professional at all times cannot be overstated. You never know whom you’re around, and when people in the fashion community act poorly in public, word spreads fast. And you don’t want a bad reputation to walk in the door ahead of you, do you?
5. A humble brag, by definition, is when you casually slip into a conversation how awesome your life is—while also incorporating some self-effacing humor to make it seem like your life isn’t really that awesome. Good example: “I sat next to the most annoying guy in first class yesterday!” Eradicate these from your vernacular. They are just as annoying as a full-on brag.
