“Style is stepping out of the house and feeling good about how you look.”

Occupation: Art director at the College of Charleston

What I like: Neutrals, layers, subtle detailing, and five-inch heels

What I hate: How uncomfortable those high heels are

My style: It’s a beautiful mistake. Some days, I’ll be bumming around in my favorite T-shirt and want to keep wearing it. So, I’ll throw on a sequined miniskirt and a vintage cardigan, and I’m ready for a night on the town.

Signature look: Layering. I layer everything—shirts, jewelry, even hosiery.

One trend I will never follow: Stuffy business suits for women. I refuse to buy one.
