How would you describe your personal style?
My style is ever-changing depending on my mood and what I’m currently inspired by. I love the classics, but I love to mix in trending details to elevate my look—like a leopard print coat over my husband’s white Oxford shirt and my favorite skinnies.
How would you describe your body shape?
What are your top three most flattering pieces and why?
- A black silk shirt that falls below the hips and has a little flow to it, but also fits well in the bust and shoulders. It’s so effortless and easy to throw on and the length is key when pairing with skinny jeans or slim trousers.
- High-waisted jeans in skinny, straight, or flared. With a long torso, high-waisted jeans give an illusion of longer legs, they flatter my curvy bottom and show off my smaller waist!
- A fitted LBD is my go-to when I’m feeling sassy. I especially love styles that hit below the knee and have some detailing up top like off-the-shoulders with ruffles—this balances out my proportions, shows off my curves and still looks chic!
