Alie Sullivan Reid said she doesn't have a set style, but she knows what elements work together to achieve a great look. For her, the key ingredient often comes from her family. I don't have one style, the 33-year-old West Chester, Pa. resident said. It is based on how I feel. I pick special statement pieces to mix with classics, and always a touch of vintage family jewelry. When we saw the senior store manager of Maryland Anthropologie at the company's newly opened Harbor East store, we loved the fact that she mixed a number of pieces together to make a trendy, playful, work-appropriate look. It started with her denim jacket and flowy peach skirt--both from Anthropologie. Her blue wedges by Eric Michael from Nordstrom added another burst of color. She mixed a pair of gold hoop earrings from Anthropologie with a family heirloom ring, and a Zodiac watch from Nordstrom. We absolutely loved her purse-a vintage brown suede clutch with patent leather trim. It was my grandmothers, Sullivan Reid gushed as she showed off the perfectly preserved purse. She had such great style. What is her key to great style? Know your body type and stay true to what you love, she advised. Don't be too trendy.
