Personal style: “Edgy chic—a combination of street edge and femininity. I also uphold luxe minimalism, but reference the trendier side of fashion.”

Favorite designer: Dylan Alexa. “Her style isedgy and distinctive yet still classic, all while being versatile enough for day and night.”

Favorite trends: “Coated denim is my all-time favorite; I’m so excited that it carries over to spring. I’m also really into colored and textured denim—especially in prints like python and other animal skins. The cold-shoulder top is another favorite.”

What she’s most looking forward to this spring: Neons. “I love the neon skinny jeans from J Brand and the cutoff shorts from Textile. I’m also really excited to see color-blocking with bright shades—like a green pair of J Brand jeans paired with an orange blouse by Chelsea Flower.”

Style icons: Mary-Kate Olsen and Kate Moss

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday: A pair of DL1961 Kate Slim Straight jeans; a white, oversized Nation tee; a Dylan Alexa leather/twill color-block jacket; and a pair of Yosi Samra flats.

Go-to dressy outfit for a Saturday night out: Rich & Skinny black-coated skinny jeans, a Feel the Piece low V-neck tee, tucked in with a silver belt, and a Dylan Alexa crepe motorcycle blazer. “I like to jazz it up with cool silver accessories.”

Favorite pleasure: “I’m a jean junkie—not surprising because of my job. They can make a bolder statement than anything else.”
