How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is extremely classic, but I like pieces that can be easily mixed and matched. I’m not against trendy items, but they’re never my investment pieces. In my love for classic style, I rarely deviate from gray, black, white, blue and brown!
How would you describe your body shape?
I’m very slender—and my legs and arms are extremely long.
What are your three most figure-flattering pieces and why?
The most flattering pieces for my body are ones that are fairly fitted or bulky. As far as length goes, I prefer pieces that hit at the knee or my ankles, there’s no in between because my legs are so long and slender.
How did you learn to dress for your shape?
Trial and error! People like to believe that because you are slender you feel comfortable wearing anything. I’m not particularly fond of how skinny my legs are so I don’t wear short skirts or shorts. I’m most comfortable with items knee or ankle length. There’s no in between!
Any styling tips and tricks you can share?
I always pair bulky or loose items with a fitted piece to give my look some dimension.
