My Stylosophy: Starre Vartan

Posted by

Starre's Style ID: Global Bohemian meets Classic New York City Crossed with a little bit of Connecticut Prep

In our April issue, we kicked off a personal style column with Eco-Chick herself, Starre Vartan. She likes her clothes colorful, low-maintenance, and—of course—planet-friendly. Check out her stylosophy and some of her favorite pieces below.

When I pick an outfit, my goal is: to amuse myself. I tend toward color and beautiful or unusual patterns.

I feel most confident when I wear: a dress and a great pair of boots. I’m curvy with long legs, so finding truly comfortable pants is a real challenge. Dresses give me freedom; boots support my ankles during my many long, exploratory walks.

Mostly, I need my clothes to: fit well and travel well. I buy a lot of silk and recycled polyester, plus scarves to make more outfits.

You can’t go wrong with: vests. They work well on everyone—structured versions for straight bodies or knit ones to add interest without bulk.

When shopping, ask yourself: “Will I really wear this?” Waste is at the heart of our
environmental problems. Buy things you’ll wear to death.

My personal style idol is: my grandma. She raised me and had a flamboyant, global style. I remember her saying, “I’m not like everyone else, so why should I dress like them?
