Dressing for any kind of validation is such a waste of time, energy and resources. Having said that, there are days when your outfit game is so on point that you just want to share it with the world. Thank tech-gods for Instagram, you can now include your squad and let everyone in on the joy a perfectly assembled outfit. To help you get in the zone, here's a list of choices that will make you want to reach out for your phone and Instagram it the moment you get into it.
