I’ve been following San Francisco–based stylist and designer Amber Richele or a while now. Her inspiring Instagram feed is a master class in high-low style. It’s really no surprise that she just gets it when you consider she has cool personal style mixed with the fact that she also works in the fashion industry. Fun fact: She’s a visual merchandiser for J.Crew and the owner and designer of her own namesake label.

Given her heightened sartorial point of view with high-low styling, I thought it could be intriguing to tap her for insights into the items she thinks are worth saving on, along with the pieces she’s okay with splurging on from time to time thanks to their timelessness and cost per wear. Of course, the items in question are all based on her own preferences, and your clothing mix should always be based on what works

For Lebanese Fashion Designers, Couture Must Go On

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, fashion has been hit hard. From factories forcing to close due to stay-at-home orders and brands shutting their doors for good to fashion weeks being canceled, the pandemic has left the industry struggling.
