Her Work Staple: The Spiky Necklace
"Since I started working on Refinery29's beauty team [a year and a half ago], I feel like my clothes have become more minimal and my makeup has become less minimal. So, more bright lipstick and more black clothing.
"I'm sitting down at a desk all day, so I have to be comfortable. I also have a really long commute — a 20-minute walk to the subway and then an hour on the train. So, if my outfit's not good for schlepping, it's not going to work. I can't wear skinny jeans to work anymore! I've been wearing a lot of flowy pants and dresses — I love this black one because it's so swingy."
"This spiky necklace is pretty ferocious. I'm a sucker for anything with spikes, and this kind of chunky, punk-inspired necklace is a great way to take a classic outfit (black dress, black shoes) and make it feel a little edgier, a little more interesting. I think it's just a matter of being open to making a statement. Don't be afraid to wear something that's going to be really noticeable. It's okay if it's loud; you just have to like it."

Her Weekend Staple: The Basic Beanie
"I love a good beanie. I have, like, 10 of them. I'll wear my beanie all day — inside, too. I don't mess around!
"You can be really dressed up and then put a beanie hat on, and it just makes [your outfit] cooler, less intentional. I also buy men's beanies, so they're a little slouchy. Wearing them looser also helps with hat head!"
"The main thing I've learned from having pastel hair is that it looks amazing with neutrals — black, brown, gray, taupe situations. I wouldn't wear a bright color beanie with this hair, but it looks so cool with understated hues. I would wear bright lipstick, though, to make it my own."

Her Work Staple: The Block-Heel Bootie
"My work look is typically see-through blouses with dresses layered on top or just paired with a high-waisted skirt. And, I basically live in black boots through winter, since they go with everything and don't get totally destroyed on the dirty, snowy streets. Black also keeps the boots looking sophisticated, so I feel like I don't have to change out of them once I'm at work."
