How do you express your personal style? Whether you jump on the latest trends or focus on timeless classics, Dallas-based stylist, Reed Robertson - alongside his client, Zoe Bonnette - gets you inspired to let your own creative style shine this season.
“I think of myself more of a collaborator than a stylist,” Reed said. “My clients are very confident, independent and strong, and my job is to work together with them to find the right fashion and jewelry to show offthose qualities.”
Reed defines Dallas style as one where people look beyond the expected and trying new things; mixing high with low, couture with the everyday.
“Women in Dallas are definitely adventurous with their personal styles. They aren’t afraid to push the envelope,” he said. “Any piece that can be worn to a black-tie event should also be able to be worn to the grocery store. Jewelry should be a whole lifestyle look.”
When creating a show stopping black tie gala look, Reed and Zoe create variety with mixed metals and a statement with colorful stones.
“We mixed not one, but two diamond necklaces from Simon G. to create a beautiful choker moment,” said Reed. “I wanted to mix and match the metals in the earrings and bracelets; but let the bold gold and opal cocktail ring do all the talking.”
Jewelry is a personal statement in a woman’s overall look, creating personality and dimension to any look.
“I love connecting with my clients, and seeing the magic that happens when a woman fi rst tries on the right piece of jewelry that truly resonates with her.”
