Lauren Kay Sims Shares the Best Style Advice She's Ever Received

She's known for her sharp styling skills, and, let's be honest, few people can pull off an oversized sweater better than blogger Lauren Kay Sims. So we asked Sims, a Vince Camuto brand ambassador, seen here in the Fenyia stacked heel bootie and Felax hobo, to fill us in on her fashion philosophies.


Who is your style icon? 

Any woman that makes jeans and a tee look effortlessly chic


One must-have item you can style multiple ways? 

A great pair of denim.


Your secret cheapie? 

I'm obsessed with L’Oreal's Lash Paradise mascara. It's only $8.99!


The one product you can’t live without? 

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer


Flats or heels? 

Flats. Or even better…sneakers!


The best piece of fashion advice you've ever received?

I’m not sure if this qualifies as ‘fashion’ advice specifically, but my parents always taught me to live within my means. This translates to fashion for me because I’ve learned that in certain stages of life, a designer handbag is not ‘within my means’. Living within my means at this point means an occasional splurge on a special item, but being content overall with what I have, and loving fashion in different ways.
