Name: Jeannine Benoit Adams
Profession: Founder, Ready Pretty , the online styling and shopping destination for busy women.
Favorite Color: I love too many to have a favorite
Least Favorite Color: Anything exactly flesh toned
Style Description: Classic with a bit of an edge.
Style Icon: Not sure I have an icon, but I love Blake Lively’s classic style, Olivia Palermo’s ability to take calculated fashion risks, and Kristen Cavallari’s, fashion forward, yet easy and cool West Coast style vibe.
Favorite Shoe Style: A great high heel pump
Least Favorite Shoe Style: Crocs
What You Love to Wear: Some variation of great denim, loose tee and jacket combo is pretty much my uniform.
What You Hate to Wear: Anything ill-fitting.
What You are Afraid to Wear: Absolutely nothing.
What is Work Appropriate/Your Typical Workplace Attire: Ready Pretty HQ is a casual (albeit stylish!) work environment. We like to dress it up but still remain a business casual workplace. Today for example I’m wearing great skinny denim, lace up ballet flats, a striped tee and long-line navy trench vest. It’s pulled together and polished, but still comfy enough for all day wear.
Do You Like to Accessorize (Jewelry, Scarves, etc.)? Yes absolutely. I love stacking jewelry on my wrists or a great statement earring. That said, for everyday, I have a simple gold bar necklace with the initials of my husband and son on them that I wear on repeat.
Favorite Stores/Boutiques: It’s so hard to pick favorites. I love finding new and interesting pieces from all over. So to narrow down is difficult! There are so many local Chicago shops that I love here in the city – Milk Handmade, Wolfbait, The Han and Azeeza, are a few of my go-tos.
Style/Fashion Tips and/or Advice: Clothing should make you feel confident. If you put it on and you don’t feel great, take it off. There’s something else out there for you. It’s a feeling, and it’s important that you feel it. That’s what we do everyday at Ready Pretty, we ensure that our users feel confident and comfortable in the clothing that they put on everyday.
Stylish Aspirations: My style aspirations are truly related to my business. My hope is that we can continue to reach more and more women helping them to look good and feel good in the clothing that they wear every day.
Fall Style Must-Have: I’ve been eyeing some great belted capes this season. In a neutral color, paired with skinny denim, it’s a cool alternative to a blazer or jacket perfect for the change in season.
Stay Stylish Chicago,
