How do you select your clothing every morning?
Based on the weather and my mood. I want to look effortless, but still want to have on me a touch of something that excites me, like a necktie for example.
Please describe your style in three words.
Classic, clean, cool.
What is the biggest mistake one can make when getting dressed?
Trying too hard.
Do you believe in role models?
What are your favourite fabrics?
Silk, cashmere, leather, and suede.
Are there any style combinations that you object to?
I don’t love mixing silver and gold.
Which city has the best-dressed women?
New York and Paris.
Would you say that you are conservative or bold?
A combo. I am conservative in that I always have liked the same classic style, but I am bold in how I wear it.
What are the rules in the way you dress?
Less is more.
Celebrities and style…
I don’t keep up with any one celebrity in particular. I have always loved Alexa Chung’s style.
Name one garment/accessory that you can never have enough of...
My engagement ring!
A woman should always look like…
She cares about herself.
Who taught you what you know about style?
What is your biggest regret?
I don’t really have regrets. I think every situation becomes a lesson learned.
The three essential things a woman should know about style are…
Dress for your body. It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it. Be yourself.
Do you have any shopping rituals?
I look online for something I want… then wait it out and if I still want it, I go for it knowing that I’ll always like it.
We will never see you wearing…
A one-shoulder top or dress.
Which new designers do you follow and why?
Self-Portrait, I find their stuff unique and extremely cool for the girl that can rock it. I also like Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini, as I love their bohemian and natural vibe. Last but not least, Are You Am I, because Rumi Neely knows what she is doing and what a girl wants.
What is the first thing you notice on a woman?
What are the most treasured items in your wardrobe?
My APC jeans, my IRO leather jacket, and my yummy Lululemons.
The one image that defined your approach to style…
Various images from Ralph Lauren campaigns.
Which fashion house never fails to impress you?
Is comfort an enemy of style?
I don’t believe so. Some days, when I could care less about who I am bumping into, I’ll throw on my favourite Lululemon yoga pants. They’re so yummy and I feel most myself when I am comfortable. I wear them with my white Sandro sneakers, and somehow it looks better than when I do care.
Who would you like to recommend for My Style?
My good friend, Jen Steele of Girls I Know.
The best words of advice you have ever heard?
Meet a new friend every single day! You never know who that person is or when they will think of you.
