In our Best Of The Web we travel the globe in search of the most fashionable talent in the creative industry, to find out their tips on style, music and whatever else we can think to ask them. We’ve chatted to everyone from models, designers and social media influencers, and this week we’re with fashion and lifestyle blogger Santoshi Shetty.

As an architecture student Santoshi’s blog ‘The Styledge’ takes inspiration from her study of shapes and space, with her outfits taking on a clean, sharp and perfectly executed look. Her blog posts jump effortlessly from travel, outfit, lifestyle and beauty articles, all complimented with clean photography and detailed, personable writing. With over 109,000 followers on her Instagram alone, her stunning outfits and editorial finesse has inspired fans from all over the world.

Can you tell us a little bit about what you do and when you got into it?

Well, I’m a fashion and lifestyle blogger who is studying Architecture at the same time. I’m in my 5th year of architecture and being in an architecture school I have grown to love design and structures. With The Styledge, my perception is to create different looks and keep my readers updated with the latest trends and everything about fashion! 🙂

How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

2016 so far has been relaxed and quite easy going so far. A major highlight for me is being a licensed Zumba fitness instructor now. My New Year resolution was to get into fitness along with fashion this year! And I see it happening.

Nike got in touch with me on the 31st of December. I did a 21 day fitness challenge with them in January along with my Zumba Fitness training! So yes, I feel good already and see things happening the way I manifested 🙂 I believe in the energy. 

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

Well for now,

Boom – Major Lazer & MOTi is on repeat! Haha! It has got some crazy beats!😍

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

To all the men out there, I would say be confident and dapper. Body language is equally important, even if what they are wearing is something basic and minimal, the way they carry should be effortless and sharp. 

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?

Don’t think about what the world has to say! Just do what your heart feels like.

The fear of what others think of you is going to stop you from being who you want to be.

1 tip to grow your Instagram account

Be consistent. Another thing that is equally important is to ensure that your pictures have good composition.

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

Yellow pants.

Any major plans for 2016?

I hope I will be one of the most known fitness bloggers in India, as it is not too common yet. I will also finish my studies this year, and that’s a definite bonus! Along with that, my goal is to build The Styledge into one of the most recognisable brands in the Fashion Blog space in India.

What is your one guilty pleasure?

This has to be NUTELLA!

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

Well I have two –

David Beckham & Bradley Cooper
