Kate Schelter: Preppy Party Princess

Fashion stylist and brand consultant Kate Schelter lives for visuals. She says her biggest influences, in addition to friends and her mom, are “books, blogs and, most of all, pictures from the past. Images are indelible.” Schelter, who is getting married this summer in Tuscany, is reminiscent of a Fitzgerald character—a carefree blonde beauty dancing barefoot in a ball gown. And her unfussy, yet bold and colorful clothes reflect her fun, free attitude. “Only buy something you would wear this instant, today or tonight out on the town. Otherwise you won’t ever really want to wear it,” she advises, adding, “Less is more. Buy better, buy less.”
