We had the opportunity to sit down with the always fabulous Jenna DeBrino, of Hot Pink Style. Lately many of our clients have been moving into newly designed or renovated homes which inevitably means amazing new closets. With spring/summer just around the corner Jenna and team have some great tips and trends for the upcoming season!
1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TREND FOR SPRING?
My favorite trend for spring is the amazing use of leather they a featuring on the runway, whether it be a leather detail on a skirt or a full leather tank, it’s all amazing.
2. WHAT IS THE ONE MUST HAVE ITEM OR ACCESSORY EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN AND WHY?
A must have item is definitely a great quality t-shirt, because it can be worn in so many different ways, and is always a classic piece.
3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DAY TO EVENING LOOK FOR THE WORKING WOMAN?
I love a modernized suit for the day (a cropped at the ankle slack and a form fitted blazer), pair it with a closed pointy toes pump. To funk it up for evening, you can ditch the blazer and throw on one of my favorite spring trends, a cropped buttery leather jacket (preferably nude).
4. GIVE US SOME INSIDER TRADING ON HOW TO PREP YOUR CLOSET FOR SPRING?
It is all about re-merchandising, move the sweaters to the back and the short sleeves and tanks to the front. Reworking your closet so you can visually see everything is key.
5. MANY OF OUR CLIENTS ARE MOVING INTO NEWLY DESIGNED CLOSET SPACES… HELP! WHERE SHOULD THEY START?
With a Consultation for our closet revamp services if they are located in South Florida. (lol) If they are out of state, the first step is to get a game plan together. Map out exactly where your pieces will be most functional for your lifestyle and the size of your closet, this step is extremely important.
6. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MUST HAVE CLOSET ACCESSORIES/ORGANIZERS?
This is very closet specific. It really depends on the closet, the size, the shape, what type of built-ins you have, if you have them, and what type of shelving your closet has. My personal favorite organizer is a great purse and clutch organizer, it not only helps protect your bags, but you can visually see them and it makes them happy.
7. TELL US HOW YOU WORK WITH CLIENTS AND WHAT SERVICES YOU PROVIDE?
When it comes to styling clients, everyone has their different needs, whether we are personal shopping for them or revamping their closet our step-by-step process is always the same. It started with a consultation, and seeing what is in there closet is the best way to get to know who they are. Our client styling services include, personal shopping, personal styling, closet revamping, and image and beauty styling.
8. WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Our ideal client is someone who is open minded, excited, and willing to step out of their comfort zone.
9. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SETTING UP A “STYLED” CLOSET?
With a Styled closet, you can visually see all that you have, everything is extremely organized, and this makes the getting ready process not only a breeze, but also fun again.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE ABOUT FASHION?
“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the women who is wearing it.” –Yves Saint Laurent
11. WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE DESIGNER AND WHY?
That is a tough question, I definitely don’t have just one because there are so many fabulous designers to choose from. My top three would be Zac Posen, Moschino, and I live for Alexander Wang because all his collections always have clean lines and chic silhouettes.
12. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR COMBINATION OF THE MOMENT?
My favorite color combination right now is definitely Black, White, and Nude. It is so versitile and will lend itself to many different looks.
