Besides her professional appearance and friendly smile, Taylor Schultz has mastered the art of accessorizing to create her signature minimal-chic style. As the marketing and brand development director for Babbo Italian Eatery, Schultz depends on wardrobe staples from Zara and Topshop to serve as a canvas for her love of accessories. “It can be easy to focus on the clothing and forget about the accessories, but they’re important to not overlook,” Schultz says. “The right jewelry can pull a look together and make a T-shirt and jeans into a great outfit.” With style icons like Olivia Palermo and Blake Lively, it’s no wonder Schultz stays up to date on current accessory trends like sporting chunky heels and rocking a bold lip. Plus, her fashionable love affair with Nordstrom functions as a one-stop-shop with brands like Madewell for jeans and Steve Madden for shoes. “Nordstrom carries all the brands I love, and I can get accessories, makeup and shoes in one place,” she says. Whether she’s running around town between restaurants or enjoying newlywed life on date nights, Schultz notes, “I make an effort to pick outfits I know will work with my plans for the day. Feeling good about clothes is as important as looking good.”
What is your most prized possession? My Jimmy Choo shoes. They are elegant, and, as a bonus, they’re easily the most comfortable heels I own. I even wore them for my wedding. What are your favorite trends? I’m loving block heels. They’re flattering, easy to match with any outfit, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I love to pair them with a fun and flirty summer dress. How does your career influence your style? I’m in a professional setting for work, and I’m still young so I want to look fresh and fun while also representing the restaurant brand accordingly.
