Celebrating Amazing Women // Meet Dayle @artfulcitystyle


(Dayle wears jewels from the Mod Squad Collection.)

Next up in our series of Celebrating Awesome Women is the fabulous Dayle from Artful City Style (@artfulcitystyle). 

We've been following @artfulcitystyle on Instagram for a while, and admiring from a distance her eye for textures, shapes and especially accessorizing! Her Insta is a gallery of amazingly bold looks, other stylish women and beautiful Manhattan streets. After a while we knew we had to take the jump and send a PM to her, we just had the feeling that Dayle and RO belonged together. And since then we've seen Dayle rocking her RO on the streets of Manhattan. Talk about a dream come true!

Our photographer Charli recently visited the Big Apple and caught up with Dayle on our behalf to snap a few photos and have a few laughs! We wanted the goss on how she became such a stylishly cool woman, so read below for a glimpse into Dayle's fashion history, advice and secrets! 


(Dayle wears Carousel Striped Drop Earrings, Art Series Disc Collar Necklace and various bangles.)

RO: What was your first fashion moment, when you knew you had a passion for style?

Dayle: When I was in elementary school, I had a year when I would wear nothing but purple.  When it came to fashion, I danced to my own drum from a very early age!


RO: How do you get dressed in the morning? do you start with one piece and build around that or just start throwing things on?

Dayle: I either start with an accessory I want to build around or start with an article of clothing I want to accessorize. If it’s an article of clothing, I play with bracelets, earrings, scarves or necklaces, shoes, socks and glasses. It is like painting. I am working on a composition. If I am focusing on an accessory, I try to pick clothing that will highlight it but not overshadow it. And then I figure out the other accessories that work well with it.

RO: Do you have any colours you would never wear together or any that find you are always drawn to?

Dayle: I love strong colors—one of the many reasons I love Ruby Olive jewelry so much! I don’t wear beige. I also love black and white. As a New Yorker, I have my share of black in my closet, but think of that as a blank canvas on which to feature my accessories.

RO: Which is your fave piece in your wardrobe, whether it be clothes, shoes, jewels or something else?

Dayle: That is truly an impossible question to answer! I am drawn to mixed textiles, interesting shapes, and strong colors. My accessories are definitely a favorite part of my wardrobe.  I could wear the same black dress every day and make it look different!

RO: What is your top styling tip?

Dayle: Don’t be afraid to express yourself in your clothing and accessories. Have fun getting dressed! It is a creative art form! I truly believe that if one has confidence, one can wear virtually anything!

RO: And what is your no-no, a look that you would never wear?

Dayle: If I go to a store and am told that something is the most popular item, I run for the hills.  I don’t want to look like everyone else.  I just want to look like myself!
