Last night was Fashion's Night Out in New York City -- a crazy night where stores open their doors and designers and celebs alike celebrate New York Fashion Week -- and J-14 was lucky enough to hang out with actress Britt Robertson! We caught up with her backstage before her appearance at Macy's to promote her awesome new gig: being the face of Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger!
Tommy Girl has tons of great back-to-school clothes and awesome layering pieces to help you create your favorite fall looks -- and at amazing prices! From must-have basic polos to super-flattering dresses, Tommy Hilfiger has the perfect preppy BTS feel, so of course we had to ask Britt to spill all of her easy-to-steal celeb style secrets!
J-14: What is the perfect outfit for back-to-school?
Britt Robertson: I'm really into mixing and matching -- like a cool top with a blazer or a vest. The best thing to do is buy pieces that you can recycle and create a lot of different looks from. I'm a pretty casual person, but I also like to dress things up with jewelry, accessories and great shoes!
J-14: What was your worst first day of school outfit ever?
Britt: When I was younger, I had these cheetah overalls and I was obsessed with them! I was obsessed to the point where I wore them, like, twice a week but with different t-shirts. And I had a matching cheetah headband! That was the worst.
J-14: How about now: what are some style rules you live by?
Britt: Cheetah pants are a don't! [Laughs] But I'd also say over-styling [is bad]. As far as fashion do's, I'd say find the right jeans.. You can pretty much do anything right from there!
J-14: Okay spill, what's the style advice that you live by?
Britt: I always say, "If you think it's too much, it probably is."
J-14: If J-14 readers only buy one new clothing item for fall, what should it be?
Britt: A really awesome blazer! You can put t-shirts under it and it makes any look just a little bit more sophisticated.
