Yasmin Sewell’s unparalleled aesthetic eye and innate ability to create original, discussion worthy outfits has earned her a coveted spot on the fashion authority roster. However, unlike some of her sartorial peers, whose styles intimidate those of us who have yet to acquire personal styling prowess, Sewell’s approach to the perennial question “what to wear?” is surprisingly simple.
When it comes to dressing herself, style maven Yasmin Sewell builds her ensembles based on physique (including hair style) and lifestyle. Her go-to pieces include structured jackets, boxy cropped tops, midi and over the knee skirts, bright coats, and feminine dresses.
To Sewell, when it comes to lifestyle, comfort and mobility are key and she prefers “loose-fitting understated clothes that have a touch of something special.” With a full head of lusciously curly hair and slender yet curvy frame, slightly androgynous pieces and feminine dresses are part of her weekly rotation. Mannish yet well-tailored blazers and wide-leg trousers balance out her dark, curly bob and she completes the look with a statement clutch, a bit of heel for added height, and accentuation of her waistline. She’s also a fan of asymmetrical necklines and tops that show off her collarbone, shoulders, and midriff. Knowing her body type and stylistic preferences, experimentation becomes that much easier. When fashion weeks come around, Sewell is often found in statement dresses and midi skirts in New York City and more relaxed street-wear at the final stop of each whirlwind tour in Paris. When at home in London, she turns the experimentation up a notch in support of local designers.
