Jade M. Sheldon: Style Profile

Jade M. Sheldon, Artist, Illustrator, BFA Graduate, Student

1. How do you describe your personal style?

My style is constantly changing (sometimes I’m feeling a retro vibe, sometimes I want to rock my spiked heels, sometimes I just want to wear jeans and a screen t) but I think the thread that holds it all together is the fact that there is always a touch of femininity and elegance. My style tends to be very classic, but also contemporary to keep up with the times.

2. Where do you find/pull inspiration?

Oftentimes I just wear what naturally appeals to me. I don’t necessarily follow trends. When I do pull inspiration, it’s from magazines (Instyle, Bust, Vogue, Elle), from movies (The Devil Wears Prada, Shopgirl, The Notebook), and from my personal style icons (Audrey Hepburn, Kate Winslet, Zooey Deschanel, Anne Hathaway).

3. Name one fashion accessory you can't live without?

It’s so hard to choose just one because I love them all (hats, shoes, handbags, jewelry, sunglasses), but I usually don’t leave my house unless I’m wearing my hand blown glass ring I purchased when I was in Venice a few years ago and my angel wing necklace (found on that was a Christmas gift from my sweetie a few years ago.

4. I never break this fashion rule:

Less is more.

5. Your next must have purchase?

Polka dot tights and a great pair of leather, mahogany-toned, low heeled, knee high boots. My dream pair would be the following from Fryes:

*Sigh*… aren’t they BEAUTIFUL!? Why do they have to be so pricey!?

6. Most underrated item in womenwear?

Hats… beautiful, classic, feminine hats. If lovely hats and elegant white gloves became a staple in women’s wear again, I would be one happy lady.

7. For all the fashionastas, provide one piece of invaluable fashion advice.
Wear what you love and do your own thing! Heed this advice from fashionista Audrey Hepburn:

“I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people’s minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.”
