We found our recent style crush Crystal down an Insta k-hole. Not sure how we came across her profile. Maybe we searched #greyhairedhotties. The Bronx native caught our eye with the best mix of uptown meets downtown cool-girl style we’ve ever seen. She recently let us tour her closet and taught us how to wear a denim shirt like a boss.
