This Fashionista is from Greenwich, CT. The close proximity to urban New York City that she has grown up with, coupled with the country Connecticut look plays out in her wardrobe. A winter weather fan, Riley often goes for the layered sweater look and is constantly in a pair of jeans with her footwear of choice: boots.
This is a pretty typical daytime look for Riley and it works well for her. Very petite, Riley plays up her assets with skinny jeans and boots, breaking up and adding length and dimension to her legs. Additionally, the loose-fitting crewneck top is a look that is very popular this season — made even more so by the broad horizontal stripes. She complements it nicely by layering with a darker scarf. Confessing that she doesn't like to stray much outside of neutrals when it comes to color, Riley knows what she likes and wears it well.
