Alright, alright… Chen gets some props for doing the actual styling per se, but you get our drift.

At just three-years-young, this cutie was the talk of #NYFW with her fresh take on mixed prints. As for the pièce de résistance? It was her chuckle-worthy chicken hat that nobody — we mean, nobody — saw coming. (Photo via @gastrochic for @nytimesfashion)
2. FROW-Ready: Dabble in a little print-on-print action with some comfy-chic leopard print leggings and a pair of EMU Australia’s celestial-inspired suede boots. Ren’s sippy cup not included.
