SC: How would you describe your own personal style??
JC: My style is effortless chic with an edge. Fitting and cut are super important to me and I love to bring textures to an outfit or wearing prints.
SC: What do you think will be the big hits fashion wise for next season?
JC: Actually, I did a special post on my blog regarding my Fashion Week coverage for Fall 2017. To be stylish next season, we will need to mix and match trends: such as mixing metallic fabrics with faux fur or velvet with lace, embellished skirts with see-through fabric, etc. Next season will be bold!
SC: Where do you tend to buy your clothes, and why?
JC: I love the French brands: Maje, Iro and Sandro. The style is effortless chic but never boring. Maje is my favourite brand because the cut is perfect for women that are petite like me.
I also love Pinko: it is an Italian brand and their pants are so stylish and fit me so well!
I shop a lot online too on Shopbop, Farfetch and Revolve: they have an amazing selection of styles and brands. I love Everlane for basics and Sezane for an effortlessly chic style. I also go regularly to Zara, Topshop, & Other Stories: they always have the latest trends!
