With as much time as our staffers spend living and breathing fashion, it shouldn’t be surprising that favorite brands start to rise to the top of our individual must-have lists. In this feature, we’re talking about those favorite designers and how they fit into our personal style. This month: Monica, who loves IRO.
Position: Online Merchandiser
Why you love the brand in 6 words or less.
Chic French design + edgy street style.
What’s your favorite piece from the brand right now?
The Sherie Cone Heel Booties. I love the unique silhouette and the sleek colorblocking. I would happily welcome these babies into my shoe collection.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m a bit of a style chameleon. Each day, my look can change depending on everything from the weather to my current nail polish to which side of the bed I rolled out of. Generally speaking though, I tend to mix basic apparel pieces with statement accessories.
Do you have a style icon?
Alexa Chung for her tomboy-meets-girly style and Kate Moss for her ability to effortlessly mix and match.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what pieces would it consist of?
Perfectly worn-in skinny jeans, a white tee, a chambray button-down, a leather jacket, booties, and a scarf.
What is your earliest fashion-related memory?
Flipping through my babysitter’s fashion magazines. She would always bring me her old issues, and I would spend hours devouring them.
