I learned about Jenny Walton roughly two years ago if I remember correctly. She’s a fashion illustrator and is currently the fashion director of The Sartorialist. Although Jenny’s only in her mid-twenties, her look is instantly recognizable. Poised, effortless, and quirky are words that instantly come to mind when I think of her style. She always looks so eloquently put together and I admire the simplicity in her make-up and hair.
I am fortunate enough to have chatted with her recently and was able to get the inside scoop on some of her best style advice. This is totally exclusive content for you guys so soak it up, make it your screensaver, tattoo it on your forehead, just do what you need to do.
“I would say [my] style advice would be to pick out the things you like about yourself and to highlight those things. I like my neck and my collar bone so I love earrings and off the shoulder tops (that’s what I’ve found really highlights those parts of my body). If there are other things you don’t love as much, figure out what you can do to solve it. If you don’t like your legs, work out and eat healthy everyday until you love them. If you don’t want to do that then make ankle length skirts and heels your thing. My advice would be that if you’re having an issue with something, do something about it. If there’s something that you really like, highlight it. The worst thing you could do would just be to obsess about the negative or aspects that are just unchangeable. I remember reading Diana Vreeland saying if you don’t like your skin, don’t wait around for somebody to say something about it and cry about it, do the most you can within your budget to remedy it. I really believe if there is a will there is a way and the whole point of the story is, anything is better than just waiting around and feeling sorry about something. If you cannot just accept it, then do something about it.” – Jenny Walton
