Opposites attract—and not just in the romantic sense. These seven pairs of best friends (and bloggers) all share a love of fashion, but where one's look may be edgy and daring, the other's classic and feminine. See how different these friends' styles are, and find out how they get inspiration from their opposing tastes.
