You don’t need one million items of clothes to look stylish — just these cool basics
The secret to Seventeen YouTuber Griffin Arnlund’s effortless style? She chooses basic staple items that have the right slouchy, cool-girl fit, then uses of-the-moment styling tricks to make her standard items feel special — like knotting a T-shirt at the waist or wearing cut-offs with the pockets hanging out just so. When your clothes fit perfectly, you look fashion-y even without a bunch of accessories or crazy prints and colors. (Don’t get us wrong – we love accessories and crazy prints and colors, too — it’s just that they aren’t as versatile, so you need a zillion different items to stock your closet.) Here, Griffin shows you how to look cool as hell all summer long with just 8 essential items.
