How would you define your collection in three words?
Edgy, effortless, versatile.
What was the creative process and inspiration behind your collection with Nasty Gal?
I really wanted to create a collection that could bring my vision to the masses. The collection is wearable for any occasion, from hanging out with friends to going out — there’s such a wide range. I try to focus on elevated classics throughout my styling and I think this collection really embraces that.
How would you define your style in your own words? And how does it reflect in your latest collaboration with Nasty Gal?
I always describe my style as a “sexy tomboy” vibe and I think this collection really shows that. All of the sets are a loose fit but still have a feminine, sexy element to them, including the basics, whether it's a cutout or a certain silhouette.
If you had to choose, what’s your favorite look from the collection, and how would you wear it?
I love them all! Right now, I’m really loving the flannel jacket. It’s perfect as we ease into fall and a great piece for layering. I would style this with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a crop top for an effortless, cool-girl vibe.
What makes a “good” outfit in your opinion? Can you share some advice on how to style your pieces?
The best thing to elevate an outfit is definitely confidence. When you put on an outfit you feel great in, you’re going to look great in it, as well. On a more tangible note, I love playing with juxtaposing pieces, like pairing a loose jean with a crop top, or a monochromatic outfit with a fun bag.
What are some fall trends you’ve been loving at the moment?
I’m really loving color, especially the color green. And you can definitely see that in the collection. After over a year without fashion, color is a great way to have some fun with your style.
What do you want customers to take away from your collection with Nasty Gal?
I want customers to see that a few solid pieces in your wardrobe can go a long way. All of the sets in the collection can be worn as one look, on their own, or mixed and matched, which is something that was so important to me.
