Veteran trendsetter Taylor Tomasi Hill was a street style star before it was even really a thing. As an editor starting out in the early 2000s, Tomasi Hill has been a staple at fashion week ever since, putting her sartorial skills to good use with one fresh, eclectic, achingly stylish look after another. Much to our delight, she recently rejoined the scene at the F/W 16 fashion weeks after a hiatus from the industry to start her own floral business.
Now based in Dallas to relaunch high-end boutique Forty Five Ten and her own concept store as VP and creative and fashion director of the company, Tomasi Hill spoke to Vogue about her vision for the stores and what she thinks of women’s outfit choices as of late. In reference to the style of the women that she’s catering to, she said, “I will say there’s a lot of athleisure, and it’s my goal to get rid of that. These women are so stylish and have dream closets, so I don’t understand why they automatically wear those tight leggings. If you want something easy, just put on jeans and a T-shirt.” There it is, straight from the present-day fashion icon herself—leggings are a no-go, in her opinion.
