Y2K Meets Spring/Sumer 2022’s Trending Color: Yellow

Perhaps I wear yellow to hold sunshine. We can never touch the sun, yet in the summer we yearn to be sun kissed. To wear the hues of marigold, of mustard, or a daffodil, is to manifest summer. And once the dog days do roll around, I’ll be clothed in those shades. Pantone confirms thatContinue reading “Y2K Meets Spring/Sumer 2022’s Trending Color: Yellow”

How to avoid ruining your new Gucci Skirt

The cover had the words “Gucci” printed on it in a promise. It was fashioned in burlap, the cocoon of a butterfly with interlock-G’ canvas wings. The pattern was a particular branch of logomania: legacy imprint: I’m talking about my new Gucci skirt. At last, after two months of hanging the piece like a prizedContinue reading “How to avoid ruining your new Gucci Skirt”

Wear Princess Plaid like Diana Spencer | The Chic List

Wearing plaid is like having a comfort blanket draped over you. I wonder if that’s how Diana felt, sporting the pattern in different colors, in the form of a dress, a blazer, or a skirt suit. That was the thing about Diana: she knew how to make her look completely fresh while feeling like home,Continue reading “Wear Princess Plaid like Diana Spencer | The Chic List”

How-To Dress Like a Chanel Girl | The Chic List

I’ve been dreaming of vintage Chanel lately. Perhaps it’s my subconscious soaking in all those vintage Chanel ads that I scroll through on Pinterest, the same way some would mindlessly their “for you” page on TikTok. Maybe it’s my vintage Chanel gold chain necklace sitting at my throat, whispering to me the lures of coutureContinue reading “How-To Dress Like a Chanel Girl | The Chic List”

Preppy Fashion is Back | The Chic List

There’s nothing like a downtown stroll in the crisp California winter air to clear one’s head and test out a new outfit. In my flair boyfriend jeans and Pepperdine University collegiate crewneck with a cream turtleneck peeking out from under, I walked down Downtown Turlock, the charming corner of where I grew up. A signContinue reading “Preppy Fashion is Back | The Chic List”

I’ve always sought to carve my own path. When it comes to on-camera style, that path leads from the runway to the anchor desk, and most days out in the field. You may ask, ‘Kristin, why go through the trouble when you already wear so many hats as an on-camera reporter who also fills inContinue reading “2021’s Best On-Camera Style Moments”

Keeping it Christmas Casual

This Christmas, I’m keeping it casual! But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to keep it ‘Krischic!’ Last yuletide holiday, I was working. This year, I’m home in NorCal and on vacation! So, I’m trading in my reporter mic for a cup of my brother’s homemade Parisian hot chocolate, the steam warming my face whileContinue reading “Keeping it Christmas Casual”

If Carrie Bradshaw lived in Bakersfield, here is what she would do

As I walked down the ‘Streets of Bakersfield,’ I couldn’t help but wonder…could I actualize an ‘Empire State of Mind’ in the ‘Golden Empire?’ And just like that…I realized I could. Perhaps it was the ensemble I dawned inspired by Carrie Bradshaw herself (a fellow journalist and fashion aficionado). The Carrie-confidence, in every curl. ItContinue reading “If Carrie Bradshaw lived in Bakersfield, here is what she would do”

THE ’90S SUIT WITH A TWIST | ON-CAMERA STYLE

It was the best of times, it was the simplest of times: The ‘90s. The finale to the 20th century was also the era I was born. The prologue to the new millennia was full of minimalist fashion. But it wasn’t this concept of doing “without” something. The neutral pinstripe suits with high-waist trousers, thatContinue reading “THE ’90S SUIT WITH A TWIST | ON-CAMERA STYLE”
