For many of us, YouTube can become a bit of an obsession, and millennials (slightly older individuals) are starting to take their fashion and beauty advice from internet famous fashionistas that hit closer to home. Anyone can learn the tricks of the trade while getting an insider look into the lives of fellow girls next door while sneaking a break at work, cuppa in hand.
We’ve compiled a rundown of how some of the top YouTubers are choosing to don their garments.
Let the countdown begin.
Who doesn’t love a comfy over-sized jumper with larger than life specs to match? Casual Friday at work? Distressed denim is your new best friend.
Don’t overdo the look with too many statement accessories, simply let your glasses do the talking while keeping the jewelry simple and to a minimum. Accessorize with stud earrings or a ring band.
Feel free to go for a bold colour or print with that jumper. Just wait, the compliments will come flooding in.

If you resonate a little more with the fancy side of life, throw on a pair of Dior Sunglasses, your classical tote bag and some nude Pumps that just go with just about everything. Mix and match with a cable knit jumper and your choice of cigarette trousers or skinny jeans.
Don’t forget the perfectly coiffed hair and you’re ready for afternoon tea.
Here’s a little help fitting in:
Have a soft spot for eclectic or quirky fashion? Opt for one “out there” piece while going monochromatic with the rest of your look.
A duster cardigan or jacket over all black basics gives you an excuse to be warm as well as comfy, all while showcasing your bohemian, stylish self.
Be art gallery or museum ready in minutes with minimal effort.
Functional fashion is what we all aspire for. Being on the move in a big city requires fashion forward & versatile attire.
Look no further, thigh high boots will keep you warm, and are foot friendly with a wedge or flat option.
Layering is key here. A turtle neck jumper under a sweater dress gives the look an almost preppy feel. Throw on an oversized blazer and you’re nearly there.
Time to accessorize: Leopard print is the new oh-so-fun neutral. A cross body bag keeps your must-haves close, and a pair of oversized sunglasses means you can keep time consuming makeup to a minimum.

Harboring an inner Marilyn, but still want to be up with modern style? A form flattering skater dress is your new best friend. Floral is always a great option, but polka dots can be fun too. Layer with a cardigan in a matching shade and pair with loafers or ballet flats. Tights or bare legs make this a year round look.
Don’t forget your cat-eye sunglasses to bring it all together.
Dreaming of warm sunny beaches, or lucky enough to have a holiday somewhere exotic on the horizon?
Nautical stripes never get old. Show off some collarbone in an off-shoulder ensemble. A dress can be fun and breezy, but a top and some cut-off shorts are a warm go to combo.
Jelly sandals can take you from beach to dinner or drinks, especially with some metallic embellishments.
Last but not least, tortoise shell sunglasses are a girl’s best friend. Just don’t forget your SPF!
Fleur De Force
There’s nothing quite like catching up over coffee with friends. Be the envy of your gal pals in a simple turtle neck sweater, and a colourful silk scarf to add a sophisticated touch. Form fitting jeans and ankle boots bring the look together. Add an extra splash of colour with these fun sunnies!
Girl next door meets fashionista; pair some high-waisted, wide leg printed trousers with a cropped sweatshirt for effortless style. A backpack keeps all your belongings handy without weighing you down. Espadrilles leave your feet happy, and a pair of round framed sunglasses fits most face shapes with ease.
