So, we like menswear. But what’s the best way to wear it?
“I think that the key pieces for getting the menswear look is the blazer. A buttoned-up button-down with jewelry and maybe even a second color on top of it, would be great. And then rolling up slacks and adding oxfords is a way to get this look, even if you’re doing it with a feminine blouse.”
And advice for stylist hopefuls?
“I do think that you have to train the eye — going through magazines and finding what you like or what draws you in, is a good place to start. Look at movies, magazines, and blogs, and pull things that make your eyes or your heart or you stomach feel something different. I think that to be a good stylist, you have to acquire a lot of knowledge. You have to be able to look at a person and know what would look good on them.”
Who's doing the best job of pulling off the menswear look right now?
“Angelina Jolie. She slicks her hair. She dresses clean with no jewelry, and she still looks good.”
Any New Years resolutions?
“I’m absolutely quitting smoking. I’m getting hypnotized this time. I want to start working out. I’m 36 and Pilates is calling my name.”
What is one item you can’t live without?
“Right now, my sequin jacket.”
