Name: Jennifer Gilmore @sassyteacherchic
Top Tip: “My tip is to choose what works best for your style, body type, and budget. Don't fall into the habit of buying or wearing something just because everyone else is buying or wearing it. Choose items that reflect the person you are on the inside.”
Jennifer’s Style Staples: “As an elementary school teacher, I lean more towards items which are classic and chic. However, I love to add a dash of interest (or sassiness) using accessories, color, and texture.”
Fall 2016 Must-Haves: Booties, boots, and lace-up flats
Name: Lee Cordon @dosaygive
Top Tip: “Look back at photos from the past few years. Most likely you already have a style, or at least tend toward a certain style, without even realizing it. While browsing through old photos also notice what cuts of clothing and colors are most becoming to you and remember these things as you shop in the future to build a really great wardrobe. One tip: your signature style doesn't have to be super fancy or complicated.”
Lee’s Style Staples: Classic and feminine, but not afraid to try out new trends from season to season
Fall 2016 Must-Haves: Off-the-shoulder tops
Name: Sasha Agent @snafierce
Top Tip: “Definitely stay true to who you are. Start with the classic and basic essentials so you can effortlessly mix and match--stretching your closet and budget.”
Sasha’s Style Staples: “I honestly love all styles--everything from street chic to girly girl. However, my favorite look is romantic bohemian.”
Fall 2016 Must-Haves: Rustic ankle booties
Name: Angela Taylor @thethriftypineapple
Top Tip: “Find something that you feel comfortable and confident and then try to find cohesive pieces to build off.”
Angela’s Style Staples: “My signature style is a mix of preppy and classic. I often pair classic staple items like a white t-shirt with a preppy staple like seersucker shorts.”
Fall 2016 Must-Haves: Booties, skinny jeans, and vests
