We’re getting right into the thick of fall dressing right now, and we’re asking designers their key tips for dressing for the season. Chris Benzs tip? Buy strategically.Every season for me is about shopping your closet and getting a few new key pieces,” the pink-haired designer, who is loved by First Lady Michelle Obama, Sophia Bush, and Eva Mendes, told InStyle.com at an intimate dinner celebrating eBay’s new Feed feature. And he suggests this season’s key pieces come with some shine. “For fall, it’s about dressing up and wearing a little bit of sparkle and shine throughout the day, like with jeans or with a shoe. I’m really into that counterpoint.” Thanks, Chris!
