Married this past February, Sydney Wuttunee’s wedding look was indicative of her everyday approach to style. Wuttunee, a realtor, wore a simple silk crepe gown, but its open back and long embellished train showed her bohemian flair. “I bought the third dress I tried on,” she says. “I know what I like and what looks good on me.”
Wuttunee likes to dress up jeans and turtlenecks with statement jackets and boots. Black is her go-to colour — her red hair is the only pop of colour she needs. She mixes in textures such as fur, metal and leather, gathering unique pieces during her travels around the world.
Wuttunee carefully curates her wardrobe and shops with specific pieces in mind. “Because I spend so much time thinking about what I buy and how it fits in with what I have, it makes getting dressed effortless,” she says. “I can put an outfit together in five minutes.”
