It's all too easy to fall back on our all-black style crutch, but we love anyone who reminds us we can don daring colors on a whim. Rachel Martino has an eye for bright hues and ultrafeminine shapes that bring a little taste of her country upbringing to the big city.
That unique mix of Southern charm and subtle edge is exactly why we tapped the blogger to be our next muse for The List — a monthly roundup of wardrobe essentials and style inspiration from the best of the fashion blogosphere. You’ve already met expert outfit-mixers Jinna Yang and Lisa Dengler; now, see how Martino stocks her modern-meets-femme closet in our exclusive behind-the-scenes video. She's modeling all her affordable faves from T.J.Maxx.
Once you've hit play (and started your inevitable wish list), stay tuned for more style secrets from Martino in her upcoming interview and photo shoot for The List — with tips that range from how to wear daring prints to a wedding to pulling off a retro swimsuit, this is the kind of outfit genius you don't wanna miss.
