local style: Lauren

We love local style, so we wanted to ask some of Lexington’s stylish to share their thoughts on fashion.

First up is Lauren, who is currently studying Fashion Merchandising at the University of Kentucky.


Describe your personal style…

My personal style is a mix of classic staple pieces such as blazers,
jeans, and scarves, mixed with a very feminine and girly touch. I love to
accessorize and mix and match pieces that I already own with new pieces to
update my wardrobe!

What are some style challenges that you face, and how do you deal with them?

I’m very short and petite so finding things that fit me well and most
importantly flatter my size can be very challenging at times. I overcome these
challenges by wearing more tailored fitting clothes that show off my shape and
stay away from less form fitting pieces.

White after Labor Day–do or don’t?

White after Labor Day is a do and don’t for me. I would absolutely still
wear a white blazer or winter white skirt with tights. But I am pretty big on
putting my white jeans away for the season.

How important is hair and make-up to your personal style?

Hair and make-up is always important to my personal style. While I do
not wear much make up, the right accents of blush, eye liner, and eye shadows
can go a long way for a look! I love mixing up my hair styles between wearing it
all the way down, to up in a high slicked back ballerina bun. (It may not sound
cute, but I swear it really compliments some outfits to have your hair
completely out of your face!)

Which are the accessories that you never go without?

My two most important accessories are a watch and earrings. I hardly
ever leave the house without at least one of them on!

What is your must have for fall?

My must have for this fall would be tall tan riding boots. They can help
complete almost any outfit and I love pairing them with leggings and skinny

Thank you so much Lauren for taking the time to share your thoughts!
