1 Girl, 4 Looks: Meet Our New Fave Model-Slash & Copy Her Best Looks

UPDATE: This story was originally published on November 27.
It should go without saying that we have tons of respect for fashion industry leaders — the designers, editors, and stylists we all know and love — but, we get equally amped about spotting young talent. So, when we first spied Tamika Wilkins out and about, we developed an insta-girlcrush. When the 23-year-old stunner isn't working as a shopgirl at Georgetown vintage boutique Tari, she's sketching out designs for a future fashion line, moonlighting as a model and stylist, and maintaining her personal blog. Busy busy, huh?
Well, we spent a sunny fall afternoon with Wilkins, who showed off four of her favorite looks — from leather pants and killer shades to prized vintage and stellar baubles — and gave us the inside scoop on her well-rounded aesthetic. Click through to meet this up-and-coming style guru and nab some of her chic secrets for yourself.
