How to Dress Like Fashion Director Elle Strauss

Brides Fashion Director, Elle Strauss

Her Style

Feminine and fun with cool edge

What You’ll <3 Her Style

With stints at Lucky, Elle, and UK’s The Face before blending her editorial expertise with her landing at Shopbop and then Brides, the British transplant is a styling master who excels at mixing high and low. Her down-to-earth personality is reflected in her feminine-with-edge style. The Williamsburg resident always looks so put-together and cool that I am always shocked to see that her outfits often consist of mostly affordable finds that could easily be mistaken for designer brands, paired with just one or two designer pieces:  an Isabel Marant bandana-print mini skirt with a $60 Urban Outfitters top that could easily be mistaken for an Isabel Marant, and Steve Madden booties that are a dead-ringer for the $600+ Isabel Marant Dickies I (along with everyone else) have been coveting forever; J.Brand skinny jeans with a striped Topshop tee, Zara cardigan, and Coach mini bag; a Balenciaga leather moto jacket with a Topshop lace dress, and quilted Chanel bag;  a Tibi midi skirt with a Topshop crop top and an Ann Taylor bag.

Her Closet Staples

The working mom also relies on classic wardrobe staples and key investment pieces that she expertly mixes and matches to make dressing easy on hectic mornings without sacrificing style.
