KEIKO LYNN

In a region where what you wear is a lifestyle mission, writer and designer Keiko Lynn has perfected her own blend of chic and sweet style that works in all four seasons. Hailing originally from South Florida, Brooklyn-based Keiko bucks Manhattan’s “everyone should be in black” mantra, and instead adds flashes of color and pattern to her daily style palette. Keiko has her own fashion line, Postlapsaria. Her blog, KeikoLynn.com, is a personal diary of her daily style with a healthy dose of beauty and fashion tips.
