Instagram may not always reflect reality, but with nearly 70k followers, Brittany Byrd, the creative maven whose gender-neutral style landed her on our list of "10 Must-Follow Women on Instagram," has a real-life following. People want to know what she's wearing, where she's copping her clothing, and they're also hoping to catch a glimpse of her boyfriend, rising rapper Lil Uzi Vert.

With summer in full swing and festival season at its peak, we asked Brittany to tell us a bit more about her style cues, and drop a few words on how to play around with men's and women's pieces this season.

I always steal his clothes and he always gets on me if he sees it on the 'gram before he realizes I took something. He always has the coolest sweaters and jackets. Just because I know it's his I go extra crazy and pair it with mad different items.
