The director of communications for luxury brand Montblanc, shares her best tips for taking a look from day to evening.
Living out her dream career, this energetic jet-setter defines her style as “timelessly chic.” For work, her wardrobe choice is dictated by how she feels and not the office dress code. “I think that’s what sets me apart—my classic vibe—but I’m not afraid to take a little risk with a trend or two,” she says. Constantly on the go, whether to a slew of meetings, an after-work event or dinner with friends, Reed, 36, must transition her looks to suit each occasion. By adding statement pieces to smart staples, Reed presents a refined yet sexy appearance. The Houston native has mastered the art of mixing the old with the new, and high-end with low-end fashions. “I’m obsessed with Zara,” she says, “but equally as obsessed with buying dresses from Bergdorf or finding something vintage.” The working mom often travels to Europe for business and likes to put her best foot forward at all times. That might explain her shopping Achilles’ heel: shoes! And the best style advice she’s ever received? “Always be polished, even in jeans.”
