Q&A: Nicol Floral Design’s Nicol Segel

Share

Favorite designers: Brunello Cucinelli, Fuzzi, Max Mara, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Theory … I could go on. 

Favorite spring trends: It’s not so much about trends but going more neutral with my wardrobe. I love wearing white and cream. I add color with shoes, bags and jewelry. 

She loves: Matching my shoes with my bag. Some of my favorite shoes are from Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin and Prada. In bags: Gucci, Prada and Louis Vuitton. 

Style icon: I love Charlize Theron’s sophisticated style. She’s so elegant. 

Personal style: Sophisticated but comfortable. I like to make jeans look elegant with a nice blouse and a navy blazer. I never wear sneakers or sweat pants unless I’m working out. I only wear a few pieces of jewelry but very high quality—Less is more. I’m originally from Barcelona, and I believe you should look nice all the time. You never know whom you’re going to meet when you’re out. 

Go-to outfit for a Saturday night out in the city: I love to wear a very feminine black or navy dress—and heels are always a must. 

Favorite splurges: Shoes, bags and scarves. I love chiffon, lightweight scarves. They can instantly pull an outfit together.  

Favorite thing in her closet: A navy Theory blazer. I can’t live without it. 

Item in her closet that gets the most wear: My Seven Eleven jeans. I have five pairs in different colors. 

Most recent purchase: A Max Mara pale-pink dress and a pair of nude Christian Louboutin shoes

Dream item: I just recently spotted a long dress at Neiman Marcus from Oscar de la Renta. It’s white with colorful embroidered flowers.

Favorite local boutiques: I really like Nicole Miller. I can always find great outfits at Skirt, and the stylists are so helpful. Latrice is my place to shop if I’m looking for something special, and J.McLaughlin has the best easy-to-wear summer dresses.
