STREET STYLE

The Coast - - SHOPTALK - BY MEGHAN TANSEY WHITTON

How would you de­scribe your style? Ca­su­ally re­fined, easy and ex­pres­sive. Fash­ion is very much a cre­ative lan­guage for me.

Who/ where do you de­rive in­spi­ra­tion from when putting to­gether an

out­fit? I find it ev­ery­where–peo­ple, places, art, mu­sic, age groups, eras—my eyes are al­ways open. I’d hate to be in a place where I felt lim­ited to think­ing my in­spi­ra­tion has to purely come from fash­ion. That said, I never pre-plan what I am go­ing to wear be­cause I don’t know what I will feel like to­mor­row.

Name a cur­rent trend that you just can’t get on board with? It’s not a spe­cific trend, but I can’t get be­hind dress­ing to look like some­one else—no one is ever com­pletely com­fort­able in some­one else’s look.

Most in­flu­en­tial de­sign­ers of our time?

What fash­ion ad­vice do you give peo­ple on a reg­u­lar ba­sis? If you love a piece of cloth­ing, wear it as of­ten as you want to. There is noth­ing wrong with wear­ing some­thing mul­ti­ple times per week.

In­ter­est­ing fact about your wardrobe? I would say about 75 per­cent of it comes from ‘men’s’ col­lec­tions—and about 50 per­cent of that is ‘bor­rowed’ from my hus­band.
