Q&A: Chloe Johnston of CJ Tours


Chloe Johnston, 26, Devon
President and founder of CJ Tours (cjshoppingtours.com)

Photo by Jared CastaldiFavorite designers: Yves Saint Laurent, Alice + Olivia, Michael Kors, Chanel, Lanvin. “I’m not a label slave. I buy clothes that fit well with both my body and my style.”

Personal style: “I grew up going to Paris every year, so I gained an appreciation for Parisian style—so much so that I started CJ Tours, a full-service shopping service offering Parisian fashion and accessories for sale online and through local trunk shows. We also arrange personalized shopping tours for visitors in Paris.”

Summer trends she loves: “I’ve always been a big fan of bright colors, which I love wearing in the summer. Maxi dresses with great details like side cutouts or back detailing are so fun to wear. Rompers are also great because they’re very versatile.”

Style icons: Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Blake Lively, Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé Knowles.

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: “Any girl can find a dress that fits and flatters her, and summer is all about showing off your best features. In the fall and winter, I live in spandex and boots, or a great pair of bright-colored jeans.”

Go-to dressy outfit for a Saturday night out: “A dress and heels, minimal jewelry and makeup. My motto remains the same: ‘Be the statement.’”

Favorite thing in her closet: “This simple, cream-colored dress with two side buttons—one of those little chameleons that changes with the weather and the event.”

Latest splurge: “Right now, I’m really into anything pink or bright blue.”
