Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to revamp our wardrobe for the new season. But instead of dropping an arm and a leg on an entirely new closet, we’re taking a page out of Christian Siriano’s fashion handbook.
During an exclusive interview with PureWow, the 35-year-old designer shared advice for transforming our closet for summer. Instead of purchasing a bajillion new items, Siriano revealed that the key is to highlight basics that can be paired with versatile splurge pieces.
“It’s all about the mix, the match and the balance,” he told PureWow.
Siriano broke it down even further, adding, “So, maybe your jeans are cheap and vintage, and you got them for $10 at this store. But then the jacket that you’re wearing is a designer that you love and that you really spent your hard-earned money on.”
He continued, “Or it can be that you got this bomber jacket at the army surplus store, and then you’re wearing a $1,000 pair of shoes that you really, really wanted.”
In addition to summer fashion, Siriano also discussed his brand-new partnership with Beautyrest, where he designed a custom mattress that’s ideal for couples—and their wedding registries.
“It was perfect timing,” he said. “You know, we were just launching a Bridal Collection, and we wanted this to feel like something that people could register for and something that they could buy as a new couple for their new home.”
If you need us, we’ll be taking Christian’s advice.
