Whitney Port’s 2013 spring line for Whitney Eve featured some interesting geometric prints, pretty pastels and the revival of an old school favorite: the ankle bracelet. We’re backstage at her New York Fashion Week show talking trends.
Whit’s bringing back the ankle bracelet
Aside from already popular trends like peplum, sheer fabric and maxi skirts, we saw the reincarnation of an old school favorite: the ankle bracelet.
But her accessories aren’t like the delicate chains of the past. Whitney’s anklets are chunky and bold, more heavy-metal than hippy.
Backstage after the show, we quizzed Whit on her new line and her tips for fellow fashionistas.
Q&A with Whitney Port
SheKnows: What was the inspiration behind this line?
Whitney: The inspiration was all about stones and natural elements and prisms. Obviously it was print heavy, and I mixed those feminine prints with more tomboy, oversized masculine silhouettes.

Whitney: I hope so. I’m trying to make them!
SheKnows: What is your favorite thing in your own closet right now?
Whitney: This black blazer. I got it in Australia and I noticed that I wear it with everything.
SheKnows: What three things do you always have on you during Fashion Week?
Whitney: Lip gloss, soda and some nuts.
SheKnows: Who is your celebrity style crush?
Whitney: I love Alexa Chung.
SheKnows: What designer would you love to collaborate with?
