Exclusive: Style Tips From Grove Style Director Marina Monroe
Last week, I visited membership-based boutique Stylehaüs to interview its creative director, Marina Monroe. In addition to giving me the full Stylehaüs experience complete with a private consultation and makeover, Marina answered a few burning questions:
What is the philosophy behind Stylehaus? I wanted to create a space where everyone that works here is a stylist.
What is the key to shopping smarter? I will use a piece in a lot of different outfits.
What are some staples that every closet needs? A leather jacket, a great blazer, leather pants, black boots, really well fitting trousers, a little black dress, and a statement necklace. Basics that look sexy and fit well.
What is your favorite label? Veda. They just have really great leather basics. And the best fitting leather jacket in the world.
If you were to relive a previous fashion decade, which would it be and why? Is it sick that I like the 90s’ trashy married with children outfits? It’s so much fun and I think it’s coming back…and all the other ones are a little too girly and too feminine for me.
As the new Style Director at the Grove, which of the upcoming stores are you most highly anticipating? TOP SHOP!
