Cecilia Cassini is only 12 years old, but she's already designed dresses worn by stars like Shake It Up's Bella Thorne!
The fashion prodigy has been designing clothes since she was 10. And on Tuesday, you can see how she went from regular tween to the talk of the fashion world on Style Network's special Confessions of a Fashionette premiering February 14, at 8 p.m.
Now Cecilia is sharing her ultimate fashion secrets exclusively with J-14 Magazine readers with her J-14 blog, Top 11 Things Every Girl Needs in her Closet...
Cecilia Cassini's Top 11 Things Every Girl Needs in her Closet
1- "Little Black Dress" -- although it does not have to be black. A classic but fun, no fuss dress (like my hot pink sequin tunic) can be thrown on easily to go to a party and you will look absolutely fabulous and stay comfy all night long!
2- Perfect, shiny gold or silver ballet flats to go with anything -- dressy or casual. Speaking of shoes, I know girls my age, myself included, love high heels, but stick to flats. We look silly in heels!
3- A faux fur vest or jacket (don't be shy to go for one in a fun color) to throw over any outfit -- dressy or casual. Make sure it is faux and only faux!
4- A sparkly fun dress to throw on in case there is a gorgeous sunrise or sunset to watch.
5- A pair of bootleg jeans and high-waisted shorts (I know, I don't really wear jeans or shorts, ever!), just in case you have to wear something other than a skirt or dress.
6- Nicely ironed stack of white and black tank tops to layer with anything.
8- Long strand of pearls.
9- Vintage Chanel purse (Try to get your grandma to give you hers --mine did!)
10- Hair "puffs."
11- Anything leopard -- just anything! But leopard is a must!
