In this new series we check in with our favorite trendsetters to get their secret tips and tricks to becoming stylish. We've chatted with designers such as and and up next, the fashion sets' most favorite DJ (she spins every single Alexander Wang party!) !

Describe your personal style in three words. Colorful. Polished. Feminine

What's something every woman should have in her wardrobe? A great black pencil skirt. It can be the foundation for looks ranging from a job interview to a cocktail party and everything in between. You can find great ones at every price point.

Vince pencil skirt, $195,

What's a favorite secret cheapie of yours? During the winter I buy tights by the dozen at Target! They're the same quality as more expensive brands and last just as long.

What will you always splurge on? I’m a shoe girl so I always invest in chic shoes. A great shoe can take a mundane outfit to fabulous heights! Some of my favorite shoe brands are Givenchy, YSL, Charlotte Olympia, and Celine.

Charlotte Olympia pumps, $975,

What will you never splurge on? Basics. I’ve found great basic pieces at places like Topshop and H&M that I wear all the time. There's no reason to spend $200 bucks on a white t-shirt!

What is your go-to hostess gift? A Jo Malone or Diptyque candle. Jo Malone candle, $65,

What brand makes your favorite jeans? I love Nudie and J Brand jeans. Nudie jeans fit me the best but I love the different colors and fabrics that J Brand makes each season.

Who is your style icon? I love Kerry Washington's style! She always gets it right!

Secret style weapon? A great tailor! I take almost every piece of clothing I buy to a tailor to have it altered before I wear it. My favorite alterations place is G&G Cleaners on Grand St. in Soho, New York.

What is one accessory every woman should own? My all time favorite accessory is a great cuff. It adds polish to any type of outfit! Jules Smith Viva Glam cuff, $100,

What is your go to "will always find a deal" website? Yoox.com has the most amazing deals. You can also find fab pieces from past seasons!

Best style advice you've ever received? My mother always told me to dress for your body type and not for trends.
