Stefani Sorenson was taking a break from work in Bucktown.
What are you looking forward to wearing this spring? What trends are you loving right now?
I’m really into the “borrowed from the boys” trend. I’m liking strong classic pieces paired with a statement heel or a bold lipstick. Masculine splashed with femininity.
What made you become interested in fashion?
My grandma and mom were my biggest fashion influences growing up. My grandma was a true lady and never left the house without lipstick. My mom was always doing something cool with scarfs or accessories to make what she was wearing an “outfit.”
Who is your style icon?
Jenna Lyons, the creative director of J Crew. She always adds something a little unexpected.
What is your best fashion tip?
Be comfortable in whatever you wear.
