Interview with Celebrity Stylist Joey Tierney

In the Clutch

by  | 

Fall has risen. Well, in most parts of the country anyway. While we in LA are still trying to figure out what month it is, and how to wear that gorge new leather jacket in this heat, the rest of the country has been Instagramming autumn foliage, cider doughnuts, and the uh-mazing fall fashions we’re dying to wear. Lucky for us, celeb stylist Joey Tierney came to our rescue and taught us a thing or two about transitional pieces.

Joey Tierney has dressed mega-stars like Britney Spears, Dustin Hoffman, and the Osbourne family, to name a few, and has made appearances on E!’s Fashion Police, Access Hollywood, and was named one of the celebrity stylists to “have on speed dial” by WWD. Basically, she’s a force of nature in the fashion world, which is why we called her in to chat seasonal fashion, edging up our wardrobe, and fab accessories.

For the average person, runway trends don’t always fit into our wardrobe the way we wish they would. Joey suggests taking a fabric from the catwalk, like velvet, and incorporating it into an accessory such as a clutch – which won’t break the bank and can be paired with formal or casual outfits. She also suggests incorporating rich jewel tones and metallics into your clothing as the perfect way to honor autumn and the latest trends while staying cool.

For those beginning to take fashion risks, Joey suggested starting with a classic silhouette in an edgy fabric. She recommends starting with a leather pencil skirt to edge up your look, and adding some fabulous accessories like this Balenciaga five-finger ring! (And who can go wrong with Balenciaga…we mean, really.)

One last thing Joey says to keep in mind is hair and makeup. “They embrace seasons just as clothing does, and can make or break a look!” she explains. A simple dramatic lip, like this oxblood lip color by YSL or a metallic eye can be the perfect detail to take you from summer to fall.”
