Getting to Know Lindsey
Q: What brought you to styling as a career?
A: After moving home from college in San Francisco, I worked for a local clothing brand as a personal stylist and visual merchandiser. A couple of years later I took a leap of faith and left to style on my own. It was scary but super exciting to try something new and step out of my comfort zone. Since then it’s been years of learning and growth that I’m so grateful to have experienced.
Q: Who are your style icons?
A: Solange, Zoe Kravitz, and Mari Giudicelli
Q: How does living in Hawaiʻi affect your personal style?
A: My style revolves around the casual lifestyle and warm climate here in Hawaiʻi. We don't really have seasons here so I'm always thinking about how to stay cool and comfortable. I like to take advantage of our cooler winter months to break out my fun jackets and light layering pieces.
Q: What are your wardrobe MVPs? Your favorite pieces in your closet you can't live without?
A: I definitely can’t live without my collection of crop tops and my go-to pair of vintage Levi’s. They're so easy to throw on after the beach or just to run a quick errand. I also love my collection of Issey Miyake Pleats Please pants and my MNZ wedges. When I find a piece I love, I need it in multiple colors!
Q: Where do you look when you need inspiration?
A: For style inspo I look on Instagram and Vogue Runway!
Q: What is your favorite part about being a wardrobe stylist?
A: I love that each job is a new learning experience especially when I get to see how other stylists work! I get to meet so many new people locally and abroad and it’s always great to make those new connections.
Q: When you're not working, what are your favorite things to do?
A: When I’m not working you’ll probably find me relaxing at home and watching K-dramas, going for a surf, or cruising at the beach with friends!
