The beautiful Preetma Singh, Associate Market Editor Marie Claire (US), before A Show, NYC, February 2012.
I absolutely ♥ Preetma's personal style - she pulls together pieces that are unexpected, a little quirky even, and makes them work cohesively together. Take last season for example: she paired her Princeton university sweater with a Marc Jacobs croc print skirt and knee high boots. This season? A pair of striped men's board shorts with a classic white button-up shirt and heels. She looked fabulous (photos coming soon :).
And this look? Plaid + stripes + checked shirt + cute lamb sweater (Meadham Kirchhoff?) = so many different prints but Preetma somehow makes it work.
Recreate Preetma's look (kind of):
'Tis the season for a little plaid print: April May Winni checked wool coat, Burberry Prorsum plaid cropped wool coat, Dolce Vita plaid dress, Marni checked vest, Free People checked slouchy pants, Smythe plaid pea coat, ASOS check midi skirt or J.W. Anderson plaid top
Alice + Olivia check and stripe gloves
Fun sweater: Aubin &Wills Aireshire Trooping the Colour sweatshirt, One by Sunny Girl bulldog sweater, or Aubin &Wills Redferne peacock sweatshirt
