Jeweler Jess Hannah of J. Hannah offers style tips
and selects her favorite Shaina Mote pieces.
What qualities do you look for when purchasing a garment?
Quality first always; is it a nice material? Is it well constructed to last? I also look for versatility. I want to be able to wear a garment many ways - not just with that one specific top etc.
Do you have one go-to item in your closet?
I'm not just saying this because you are interviewing me, but I love my Shaina Mote rompers (I have multiple)! A one piece is such an easy "throw it on and go" outfit that still looks super put together.
How would you describe your personal style?
High- waisted pants and a tee! I love simplicity and menswear details. Comfort is key.
Is there any quality you'd like to see more of in the way women dress?
Support local designers, sustainable fashion and vintage/thrift! No more Forever 21 and Zara please.
Any style advice or tips?
Consider cost per wear. If you really love something and it's practical and will be well worn and loved, then it can be justified~ Much better than 5 trend pieces of lesser value.
