The ace designer decodes her style. Learn more about her style evolution and how to nail being classy and trendy all at once
Understanding your body is the key to looking good and a trait found amongst all impeccably dressed fashionistas. While people shy away from talking about their bodies, these brave souls explain how they work their anatomies to their advantage
How would you describe your body type?
I would say I have a swimmers body type — I have broad shoulders but I am narrow at the hips.
Has your body type changed over the last five years?
Not really. Maybe I am a little less toned since I have become irregular as of late with my workouts. I tend to skip meals thinking I will maintain something. Yes, it’s a misconception but it feels good.
How has your style changed over the years?
I love going with the trends of the moment though I’m not a martyr if its not flattering. My style hasn’t really changed too much. I follow a relaxed look in the day, usually opting for a jumpsuit or cargo pants with a t-shirt. In the evenings I go for a more refined look in case I have to step out and more importantly, to feel like work is over!
In your opinion what is your most troublesome area?
None in particular and I am definitely not pointing it out. Why draw attention to a troublesome area if it’s (hopefully) not noticeable!
How do you dress your body according to your body type?
I am age appropriate for sure. I love flared, wrap trousers with blouses or a silk t-shirt. I also love long wrap dresses and kaftans.
In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing here?
When they follow trends or styles because others wear them.
Which silhouettes suit your body the most?
Either fitted trousers with an oversized blouse, or a long dress with a scooped back and a high, front slit for the evening.
What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing and why?
Short dresses! It just throws my frame off and honestly I just don’t think it looks classy on me.
