Pittsburgh girls know and love fashion! They know what colors look good on them, what designer looks they covet, and where to shop. Pittsburgh girls are more than just Pens jerseys and Terrible Towels, they are fashionistas! Lauren, a 29 year-old restaurant manager and student from Gibsonia gabs about her personal style and fashion!
What is one store could you spend thousands of dollars on clothes in?
Coach and Vera Bradley because you can never have enough bags, wallets, and wristlets. I also love Nordstrom, because they have everything all in one place.
What is your favorite Pittsburgh mall?
I like Monroeville Mall a lot because of its location, but in terms of number of stores I would shop in, Ross Park. Though, I don't like how high end Ross Park has become.
What color do you think you look best in?
My hair and skin tone demand that I wear cool colors. I look best in blues and greens. I wear a ton of teal. I also wear black often. Occasionally I can pull off a red, provided it is more a garnet than a ruby.
What is one piece in your wardrobe you could never live without?
Overall, a great pair of jeans. Mine actually are Abercrombie and Fitch, if you can believe it. They fit amazingly. You can dress them up with heels and a blazer, you can dress them down with sandals and a tank top, you can switch looks easily throughout the day. Versatility. Runners up include a classic black blazer that goes with everything I own and my black and gray Coach tote that I always carry.
What is your favorite cut of jeans?
I usually wear boot cut because they flatter my build the best. I can only wear skinnies with heels.
What is your ideal winter coat?
I wear a gray North Face for everyday, it matches almost everything and is very warm, as ski coats tend to be. I also wear a grey or black pea coat for dressier ensembles and I also have a taupe leather jacket I just got on clearance that I can't wait to wear.
What is your favorite kind of dress?
I like mid thigh length dresses, or just above the knee. Flowy fabrics are a must.
What is your favorite type of footwear?
Sandals. I would wear them all year if I could. I also like Sperrys right now. Heels are great too, but not for everyday.
Money is no object, who is your favorite luxury fashion brand?
Toss up between Chanel because it's classic and Prada because it's not. I also like The Row and Alice + Olivia.
5 adjectives to describe your style and wardrobe?
Classic, comfortable, boho, light, and neutral.
