Fact: Anyone with a credit card can be fashionable. Another fact: Very few people-credit cards or not-can be considered women of genuine style.

Sure, draping yourself in the coolest labels and "It" items might give you a boost of instant sartorial gratification, but in six months those pieces will be obsolete, you'll be out a month's rent, and you'll feel compelled to keep up with the cycle of buying the next round of coveted pieces. Exhausting!

Yet, so many women seem to be falling victim to this cycle. Blame it on today's street style-obsessed world. Years ago, most young women working outside fashion wouldn't have have necessarily been aware of what the big 'It' items were within the industry, unless they truly loved and followed fashion.

Today, all they need to do is take a quick peek at Pinterest, or visit any one of the gazillion personal style blogs that exist today, and they'll be inundated with up-to-the-minute images of Céline, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Chanel, and other top-level labels, which can often create a bit of FOMO. And that, in turn, can result in scores of young women looking, well, exactly like everyone else and going broke in the process.

Then, however, there are those images you'll see on blogs or street style sites of women who look so amazingly chic, cool, or interesting who aren't covered in head-to-toe labels, but rather know how to take non-descript pieces and style them in such a way that their whole look is completely enviable and covetable.

These, friends, are the truly stylish women we all should aim to take our fashion inspiration from. To that end, we've compiled the 7 habits of highly stylish people to get you started. Read on!
