L O O K W H O ' S T A L K I N G ESSENTIAL STYLE Kate Schelter pens and paints a scripture of style. By Sara Cornell Photography by Patrick Cline What Would Kate Wear: "Crisp white Ts, worn-in Levis, L.L. Bean boat totes" The Mantra: "Don't try to be stylish—just wear what you love and what works for you… salt water, sunglasses, stripes, sunscreen, Sperry's—follow these and you'll find your own classic style." The Faves: "I love Design Works Cape Cod in Yarmouth Port (also where I currently have an exhibit of original watercolors); Pain D'Avignon; Happy Fish Bakery; Greydon House on Nantucket (love the Les Indiennes bed linens); Magnetic North on Martha's Vineyard is chic, simple and classic." She illustrates. She designs. She writes. She always looks smashing. Seriously, is there anything that Kate Schelter ( doesn't do? You may think it's unfair that the Cape Cod native has so much talent. But she wants to share her wisdom with you. Her new book, Classic Style: Hand It Down, Dress It Up, Wear It Out ($25, Barnes & Noble), is filled with one gem after another (inspired hugely by her very stylish family) on how to channel a Jackie Kennedy-meets-Cara Delevingne vibe. When she's not creating commercial illustrations for Dior, Bulgari and Toyota at her own luxury brand consulting firm, Schelter is living the dolce vita in our parts. 1 2 8 B O S T O N C O M M O N S E P T E M B E R 2 0 1 7 | M O D E R N L U X U R Y .
