Welcome to Style Diaries, a new series where we research the physical manifestations of our closet tours IRL. We're asking friends and tastemakers to show us what they're *actually* wearing during the week and provide a little insight into their thoughts on the current state of fashion. This week we are speaking with Chloe King, who has worked in the fashion office at Bergdorf Goodman and led content teams at The Webster.



What does your style *actually* look like right now?

“More or less the same as it always does! I love color. I love layering. I love a strong silhouette. A year in(!) I've learned that too many days in sweatpants and I feel a little adrift, less optimistic, and really less 'me.' Much to my colleagues' amusement, I try to still get dressed for work! And Zoom weddings, or walks—whatever meager activities I have on my schedule. The biggest change has been my heels are collecting dust as I keep reaching for sneakers, chunky boots, and loafers."




Day 1:

“I am impatient and I like to wear new things as soon as they arrive. I got these Rosie Assoulin pants during her online sample sale. The wide corset waistband is surprisingly comfortable! And a structured pant makes me feel polished for work. The crop-top (bra) combo with a sweater scarf is a result of living in a very old Brooklyn apartment with zero heat control.”

Do you have an outfit formula or preferred style?

“I’ve tried to keep my same sensibilities, but a little more relaxed. I’ve never been into form=fitting clothes, but anything A-line and easy feels best right now. That doesn’t mean minimal—I look to designers who lift my spirits with their exuberance, wit, and charm. Think Rosie Assoulin, Simone Rocha, Comme des Garcons, Dries van Noten, but also younger designers like Christopher John Rogers and Marine Serre. I’m also sort of a closet vintage freak—I love a hunt and the surprise/delight of finding unique pieces.”


Day 2:

Sea has never looked better, if you ask me! This cute coat is perfect for transitional spring weather, but like I said…I’m impatient. So I love wearing it as sort of a robe/sweater layer at home. Here on a Saturday afternoon with vintage denim, a shirt I stole from my boyfriend, and cool boots from the Camper Lab series—also a men’s style! The flower corsage? Well, because I always have to make it a little weird.”

Predictions for what fashion will look like post-pandemic? Or at least how you will dress?

“It’s been fascinating watching the market evolve—from the celebration of nature as we were confined indoors, to embracing knitwear and leisure attitudes as we had nowhere to go. But as a maximalist, I am hopeful that everyone will be ready to go big on fashion that makes up for lost time.”


Day 3:

“I’m probably not the only person who’s gotten a little bored with their closet. In the spirit of mixing it up, I’ve started pulling out summer dresses and trying to winterize—here with a long cashmere coat I found shopping men’s vintage (best for that XL shoulder) and a cozy Ganni sweater. The giant platforms probably pissed off my neighbors, but the colors definitely improved my spirits!”
