Looking at cool clothes on people isn't just limited to lookbooks and fashion magazines anymore—you can see it in real life. Even for people who don't live in cities like Tokyo or New York, it's never been easier to find would-be style icons who wear stuff you think is totally awesome. Street style, blogs, and Tumblr made people realize that anyone could throw on some fancy clothes, snap some photos, and gain enough followers to be deemed an #influencer. Some people even made careers out of it.
