Exploring personal style and learning about fresh trends from different fashion creatives is always intriguing. So when we had the opportunity to chat with Jessica Abbott, head merchandiser at new fashion brand Behold, we jumped at the chance. At 25, Abbott worked as the COO of a contemporary brand. Since then, she’s continued to help build e-commerce brands, including Behold.
For a little background, Behold is an interactive platform where you can take a quiz to create a personal profile to share more about your style. The platform then offers styling tools to help create outfits and also offers up a daily curation of trends and items from expert stylists that they think you’ll be interested in and want to shop. You can learn even more here. In Abbott’s world, she’s responsible for spearheading all on-site merchandising and brand curation. She also ensures the brands she works with have strong missions.
Given that Abbott has a storied career in fashion and currently leads a merchandising and styling team, we thought there could be interest in learning more from her POV. Specifically, we wanted to learn more about the current items Abbott thinks are true modern wardrobe staples. Basically, the pieces coming your way are items she routinely wears and recommends to others.
With all that in mind, keep scrolling to learn more, complete with outfit inspiration from Abbott. There are also inspired shopping picks sprinkled throughout.
