We have a few new faces as well as a few that you all already know and love. To add a little bit a fun, we’ve asked each of the editors to pick a three-piece outfit that represents their style and we’ve bundled that outfit together for only $11.99. That’s basically getting three patterns for the price of two!

Take a look at our four BurdaStyle.com editors below and their very different style. We hope you enjoy!
