Style Muse: Shiona Turini


Style Muse Shiona Turini in the Cosmo offices.

With her enviable work history and an even more enviable closet, it was a thrill to chat with our latest Style Muse, Shiona Turini. As the Fashion Market Director of Cosmopolitan magazine, Shiona’s got amazing insider access, so we got the scoop on fall trends, her fashion month plans, and closet must-haves.

SHOPBOP: What fall trend are you most excited about?
SHIONA TURINI: This season there were some great suiting options from Dior, Stella McCartney, and Gucci that I'm excited to wear—but in a way that's less “power suit” and more Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. I also love the subtle hints of bondage, which we saw in lace-up details at Dior, Jonathan Simkhai, and Alexandre Vauthier. And of course, I'm always a fan of leopard and cheetah, which, to me, are always on trend.

SB: As a known heel lover, how do you feel about the sneaker’s big fashion moment?
ST: I'm a huge lover of all things Nike, and I love a good designer sneaker collab, à la Riccardo Tisci for Nike or Solange Knowles's Girls of Blaze capsule with Puma. But I must admit I'm much more of a collector than an actual wearer of sneakers. Heels give the illusion of a longer leg, better posture, and make an outfit look more polished and pulled together. I'm not ready to give that up for a fashion sneaker!

SB: Fashion week is fast approaching. Which shows are you dying to see?
ST: Fashion week is always an exciting time for me—I love the magic of seeing a show for the very first time, and there are so many I'm dying to see. In New York, I'm counting down the days until the Altuzarra and Alexander Wang shows. I love the feeling that the DKNY and Donna Karan shows leave you with—a huge appreciation for NYC. Cushnie Et Ochs, Wes Gordon, and Zana Bayne have become three of my favorite new shows in New York. And of course Marc Jacobs is always a highlight. In Paris, I'm really looking forward to Anthony Vaccarello, Balmain, Valentino, Dior, and of course, Chanel. The sets at Chanel are always so epic and breathtaking.

SB: What’s your go-to look?
ST: I like to say that I invented the crop top. I know it's not true, but it's a style that I've been wearing proudly since high school. I have a small waist and curvier hips, so a cropped shirt paired with a high-waisted bottom is one of the most flattering looks for my body. A crop top with an A-line skirt, high-waisted pant, or pencil skirt works very well for me, so I stick with it as a uniform.

SB: What are the five pieces you could never live without?
ST: Gold jewelry, single-sole pumps, bodysuits, a black A-line skirt, long-sleeved crop tops, and a black, cropped leather jacket. I know that's six but what can I say, I'm a rule breaker.

If the Wedding Shoe Fits

Every great ensemble begins with the shoes, and your wedding day is no different. The footwear you pick for your nuptials can be a secret surprise tucked under layers of silk and lace, or the stars of the show as they walk you down the aisle. Here’s a little roundup of my favorite bridal footwear from this season:

THE BOOTIE
Elegant and modern, this Casadei bootie is both structured and feminine.

THE SATIN PUMP
This little Kate Spade New York pump is a total classic, with a hint of sparkle–just enough to truly make you shine on your big day.

THE JELLY FLAT
A flirty little Salvatore Ferragamo flat will keep you cool and comfortable under all that tulle.

THE LACE HEEL
A sophisticated Monique Lhuillier heel adds a sexy edge to your wedding day look.
