What is Beatrice’s style?
Beatrice considers her style classy, chic, polished, and effortless. She is a big fan of classic pieces that never go out of style, such as skinny jeans, white t-shirts and little black dresses – she believes that they are good wardrobe staples that are worth investing in.
Where does Beatrice usually shop at?
Her wardrobe mainly consists of pieces from Aritzia and Zara – they offer quality garments that are versatile, durable and low-maintenance. Occasionally, she likes to splurge on Club Monaco and J Crew, as she tries to transition her closet to a more workplace/ office-appropriate wardrobe as a young professional.
2 items Beatrice could never leave the house without:
Beatrice could never leave the house without her Ray-Bans (aviator) and a few spritz of perfume. Her go-tos are Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs, Chloe by Chloe, English Pear & Freesia by Jo Malone London, and Rose the One by Dolce & Gabbana that has been unfortunately discontinued.
3 items Beatrice would never wear:
1. Heels – because Beatrice is always on the go (hence the busy bee icon)!
2. Muscle tanks – they elongate Beatrice’s already-slender arms.
3. Purses that are bigger than the size of her head – Beatrice is a sucker for micro/mini cross-body bags.
What are Beatrice’s biggest fashion pet peeves?
1. Visible bra straps worn with tube/ off-shouder tops (or dresses).
2. Off-colour combos – bright-coloured bras + bright-coloured tops are big no-no’s.
3. Poorly made clothes with hemline falling out, piling, discolouration, or stains… Those can be easily fixed.
