Elaine Welteroth's career path sets an example of someone who doesn't wait for an invitation but instead shows up and fights for space for herself. She doesn't stop at reaching one goal; she celebrates it and then sets her sights on the next. In her warm and honest way of speaking about her life and career, the term "settling" just doesn't seem like it's in her vocabulary. And yes, this attitude extends into her personal style, as well.

"I navigate a lot of traditional spaces in an untraditional way and I like my 'uniform' to reflect that," says the former editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue, New York Times bestselling author, and producer who has an obvious appreciation for bright colors and strong silhouettes. However, thanks to a few monumental shifts this past year, including a cross-country move, Welteroth's "uniform" looks a little different these days.

Unsurprisingly, her new home of L.A. has grown her love of all-day, everyday sneakers and vintage (or vintage-inspired) styles. But overall, Welteroth's current mindset is that choosing what to wear—like everything else in life—is best when it comes with "hell-yes energy." Together with Neiman Marcus, we're taking a closer look at what this means and how the multi-hyphenate creative came to a place where she's accepting nothing less in life, in work, and in the ways in which she's presenting herself to the world.
