Taylor’s personal style: “Polished.”
Lauren’s personal style: “I collect clothes and accessories as though it’s art. I’m known for my over-the-top costume jewelry—to me, more is more. I grew up in Soho and my style is sometimes boho—I love tunics, caftans and headbands.”

Taylor’s inspirations: “I am inspired by so much—from our travels around the world, living in New York City and working for an iconic French couture house, to spending the weekends in Connecticut.”
Lauren’s inspirations: “My best friend Taylor, scenery and travel. Going to India really had an impact on my style—all of the beautiful, bright colors and beading. My mother is British and I often go to London and get inspired by the trends there before they even get to the U.S.”

Taylor’s favorite local stores: “Bergdorf Goodman—there is no better place. Jeffrey New York always has a unique selection, and of course, New York Vintage is divine.”
Lauren’s favorite local stores: “Bergdorf Goodman, New York Vintage, Isabel Marant, Henri Bendel and Ina. I also love going to the Antiques Garage in Chelsea on the weekend and finding amazing vintage jewelry.”

Taylor’s signature accessory: “Bracelets. More is more.”
Lauren’s signature accessories: “My armful of bangles from India and my gold Chanel ring that I wear on my wedding-ring finger—I will be married to Chanel until I am engaged!”

Lauren’s favorite designers: “For jewelry, Rodrigo Otazu and Janis Savitt. For shoes, Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood. I absolutely love the fabrications of Alexander McQueen, Temperley, Rachel Roy, Matthew Williamson, Naeem Khan, Balmain and Chanel—they are all so unique and different. I love designers that take risks and understand a woman’s body.”

Taylor on New York style: “Style describes New York.”
Lauren on New York style: “It’s the best in the United States. People here are proud of who they are and take risks.”

How Taylor’s style has evolved throughout the past two decades: “Working for a luxury fashion company has definitely refined my style. I wear a dress every day, and I find I can really express myself in the office with my shoes, jewelry and accessories.”
How Lauren’s style has evolved throughout the past two decades: “I used to be very trend-driven; I had to wear whatever was out at the moment. I have learned to simply wear what works for me and what I love.”
