Style Profile: Mood dictates wardrobe for Ekberg Risher

FARGO – When Susie Ekberg Risher dresses each morning, she chooses clothes that fit her mood.

Some days, it’s a graphic T-shirt and red Converse shoes. Other days, it’s a minimalist neutral look with a fun scarf.

I spotted Ekberg Risher at Nichole’s Fine Pastry looking effortlessly classy on a sunny fall day.

Describe your style. Individual – I also like mixing high-end items with lower-end items.

What are you wearing today? My dad’s wool tuxedo jacket, a Missoni scarf, CAbi clothes and a Prada handbag I bought at the flagship store in Milan.

Why is style important? I think it’s an artistic thing. I’m a writer so dressing is the closest I get to being a visual artist.

What’s your style philosophy? I’m going to dress beautifully no matter my size and age. You also don’t need a lot of clothing to be fashionable. I have one closet. Also, have fun!

What’s your favorite thing in your closet? I have a gray wrap sweater that I’ve worn for a year and a half. It’s long and unstructured, and comfortable and beautiful.

Who’s your fashion icon? Jenna Lyons (the president and creative director of J. Crew).

I also like Victoria Beckham’s designs.

Where do you get style inspiration? Lucky magazine.

Where’s the best affordable jewelry in town? Chico’s and Hot Mama.

You travel frequently. Where’s the best street style? Verona, Italy. Women wore long chiffon maxi skirts with motorcycle jackets – yes, yes, love it all.
