Susan Ahn, 38, Gladwyne
Owner of Eaves, Wayne (shopeaves.com)

Photo by Jared Castaldi Favorite designers: Phoebe Philo, Isabel Marant, Christopher Bailey.

Personal style: “A mix of beach- and city-chic.”

Summer trends she loves: “Whites, boyfriend button-down shirts, cropped denim, sorbet colors, gold accents, washed derby leather oxfords, fun stripes, colorful scarves and kaftans.”

Style icon: “A combination of past and present: Jane Birkin, Ali MacGraw and Diane Kruger.”

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: “Jeans and a great top—or a summer dress with Anniel booties.”

Go-to dressy outfit for a Saturday night out: “A classic dress, a leather jacket and city heels.”

Favorite stuff in her closet: “Dries Van Noten pony-hair shoes, my mother’s hand-me-down classic Chanel quilted bag, a Marc Jacobs leather jacket, Antik Batik tunics, a vintage Missoni maxi dress; my Robert Clergerie for Barneys gold brocade flats, Isabel Marant blouses, and 194t hoodies.”

Fashion blogs she loves to peruse: An Afternoon with Michael Mundy, The Sartorialist, Miss Moss, Refinery29.

Favorite local boutiques:Anthropologie in Wayne. It’s always sunny, and perfect for gifts and shopping with your kids. Revival in Narberth for a designer find at great prices. Reader’s Forum in Wayne and Children’s Book World in Haverford are both friendly neighborhood bookstores to browse the classics. And, of course, Eaves, because it feels like your favorite Shore home.
