ES­SEN­TIAL STYLE

Kate Schel­ter pens and paints a scrip­ture of style.

Boston Common - - SOCIAL SCENE - By Sara Cor­nell Pho­tog­ra­phy by Pa­trick Cline

She il­lus­trates. She de­signs. She writes. She al­ways looks smash­ing. Se­ri­ously, is there any­thing that Kate Schel­ter (kateschel­ter.com) doesn’t do? You may think it’s un­fair that the Cape Cod na­tive has so much tal­ent. But she wants to share her wis­dom with you. Her new book, Clas­sic Style: Hand It Down, Dress It Up, Wear It Out ($25, Barnes & Noble), is filled with one gem after an­other (in­spired hugely by her very stylish fam­ily) on how to chan­nel a Jackie Kennedy-meets-Cara Delev­ingne vibe. When she’s not cre­at­ing com­mer­cial il­lus­tra­tions for Dior, Bul­gari and Toy­ota at her own lux­ury brand con­sult­ing firm, Schel­ter is liv­ing the dolce vita in our parts. What Would Kate Wear: “Crisp white Ts, worn-in Le­vis, L.L. Bean boat totes” The Mantra: “Don’t try to be stylish—just wear what you love and what works for you… salt wa­ter, sun­glasses, stripes, sun­screen, Sperry’s—fol­low these and you’ll find your own clas­sic style.” The Faves: “I love De­sign Works Cape Cod in Yar­mouth Port (also where I cur­rently have an ex­hibit of orig­i­nal wa­ter­col­ors); Pain D’Avi­gnon; Happy Fish Bak­ery; Grey­don House on Nan­tucket (love the Les In­di­ennes bed linens); Mag­netic North on Martha’s Vine­yard is chic, sim­ple and clas­sic.”
