Name: Heather Hogden
Profession: Director of Nightlife
Favorite Color: Black
Least Favorite Color: Camel
Style Description: Hipster Hot x Cozy Chic – I enjoy mixing patterns and colors. Depending on my mood, I love to pair a romper with a consignment jacket, leather pants with flannel and wedge heels, or a feminine floral top with boyfriend jeans.
Style Icon: Rachel Zoe or Jennifer Aniston
Favorite Designers/Brands: All Saints, Zara, Free People, Gucci, Carolina Herrera, Vince
Least Favorite Designers/Brands: I don’t have a least favorite brand! It’s more about making the piece your own.
Favorite Shoe Style: My shoe style is versatile – you may find me rocking a comfortable pair of loafers or sky high heels on any given day.
Least Favorite Shoe Style: Mules
What You Love to Wear: Anything comfortable! I’m a huge fan of oversized t-shirts, leggings, rompers and chunky sweaters. I think you can achieve a polished/dressy/professional look while being comfortable at the same time.
What You Hate to Wear: Things with too many ruffles or bows. It’s just not me!
What You are Afraid to Wear: I’m afraid to wear fur or animal skin. It’s so beautiful, but I do not support the unethical treatment of animals. I go for faux!
What is Work Appropriate/Your Typical Workplace Attire: It depends on the day, weather and my mood. I feel good in a silk blouse with dark skinny jeans and colorful flats, a leather pencil skirt with heels, or a dress with leggings and booties.
Do You Like to Accessorize (Jewelry, Scarves, etc.)? Yes! I love arm candy – I always wear my gold Nixon watch, bracelets, rings, and you’ll usually see me accessorizing with a scarf of some sort.
Favorite Stores/Boutiques: Aritzia, Neiman Marcus, American Apparel, Barneys New York, Intermix
Style/Fashion Tips and/or Advice: It’s most important to have the basics covered – for example, solid colored t-shirts that can be layered, tucked in or worn out. The goal is to find versatile pieces that you can wear several outfits with. It helps you sort through your wardrobe better also!
Stylish Aspirations: I like to add a little drama to a simple look – such as pairing a draped sweater, jacket or dramatically long t-shirt with flattering heels and holey jeans.
Winter Must-Have: This winter it’s all about the sweater scarf for me! I am obsessed.
Holiday Wish List: My boyfriend doesn’t agree, but I think I am ready for a new designer handbag. It’s not that I’m a label fanatic, but once you get a certain age or status, it’s like a rite of passage.
Stay Stylish Chicago,
