The new style icons
The blogging revolution has given a platform to the under-the-radar style icons we cross paths with on a daily basis.

Here’s a list of five local style icons you should be paying attention to… click follow and be inspired!
Anelisa gives a fresh perspective on fashion. Given her art background, she views fashion as art and experiments with her style. From dressed down dungarees to cropped jeans, off-the-shoulder top and heels, each post has us relooking our wardrobe.

One glance at DJ Doowap’s Instagram feed and you’ll be read to break into ‘Let’s talk about sex baby…’ We love the way she channels 90s style icons like Salt-N-Pepa and Janet Jackson.

While she describes her style as tomboy influenced, there’s no denying that her style is dynamic. Expect to see her flitting from relaxed fit jumpsuits over a tee to a delicate mesh blouse or a classic button down.
