When it comes to mastering your casual-cool athletic style, you can trust BTR fashion expert and publicist Lori Krebs. Whether she’s gifting celebs at the Golden Globes Gifting Suite, or being featured on hit shows like Good Day LA, EXTRA, and Entertainment Tonight, she keeps informed on what’s hot this minute.
That’s why we can’t wait to check out her top picks from the Athletic Inspiration events, starting February 8th, at 11 a.m. ET!
We also sat down with Lori to get the inside scoop on what makes for amazing sporty style and to find out what’s the ultimate fashion faux-pas.
Q: Today’s Athletic Inspiration events feature everything from workout wear to sporty-chic clothing. What’s your favorite athletic look?
A: My all-time favorite athletic look has to be Tom Brady! Just kidding. In terms of active wear, black leggings are my ultimate go-to staple. A good cotton/spandex pair are key. I love anything lightweight and comfortable – tops, tanks, dresses. When you feel good, you look good. I truly believe that.
Q: You’ve met so many celebs while promoting BTR in Hollywood. Which star’s style do you admire and why?
A: I’ve seen many celebs in very interesting get-ups. Most recently, I bumped into Kim Kardashian wearing high-waisted tweed pants – so passé…nonetheless, she still looked beautiful. I have to say – I’ve met Kate Bosworth multiple times and each time she looks better than ever. She’s got this effortless approach to style that I admire. She doesn’t overdo it – I appreciate that given the fact that she’s in the spotlight 24/7.
Q: We’ve all seen those candid shots of celebrities looking great on their way to the gym. Which accessories would you suggest to help someone look fresh instead of frumpy?
A: Do you notice why these celebs look so great after leaving the gym? It’s all about the accessories! Whether it’s Jessica Alba or Halle Berry, your favorite stars are constantly covered behind trendy frames to mask their flush faces. A chic pair of shades are a great investment piece. A comfortable and stylish pair of running shoes and a trendy tote bag for the gym are also a must! A fun tote is a great alternative to a bulky gym bag.
Q: How would you describe your personal style and what are your go-to brands?
A: Laid-back and comfortable. I’m at many events that require me to dress the part, so when I’m in the office or at home, I enjoy keeping my style relaxed. If you catch me on the weekend, I would probably be spotted wearing black leggings, black leather buckle boots with a billowy sweater and scarf. At the moment, I can’t get enough of my Fiorentini & Baker buckle boots – we actually sell many similar versions at BTR. The majority of my clothing is from BTR from brands like RD Style, La Classe Couture, BCBG, JBrand….I can go on and on…
Q: Since you’re always on the road, can you share some packing tips with us? What fashion essentials are a must?
A: Do not over pack! I used to do it and I have finally learned! Packing your entire wardrobe is so overwhelming. Having too many choices is exhausting. Make sure to pack the essentials like a fabulous oversized handbag, a few fun scarves – nothing polishes up your look better, and a pair of black pumps that you can throw on for last-minute meetings or events. Okay, you can pack your favorite pair of jeans and a couple tops too, but keep in mind that you can always buy something wherever you are, if you really do need it.
Q: What’s your top fashion faux-pas?
A: Double denim should be a crime! I came across a photograph of Katie Holmes sporting dark wash jeans with a lighter wash denim button-down. I remember this being a huge trend in the 90’s – and that’s where I’d like to leave it! I keep my outfit to one denim item only.
