Sarah Hyland is the star of Ocean Pacific’s summer line, which is totally cute and affordable. We hung out with her at an indoor pool party in NYC to hear about the line, her spring style must-haves and more!
Life’s a beach for Sarah Hyland!
The Modern Family actress is one of the faces of Op’s Spring/Summer campaign and she hosted an indoor pool party recently in NYC to celebrate and share her style advice.
Her biggest tip? “Dress to fit your figure,” she told SheKnows. “I have really long legs and a really short torso, so I like to show off my legs more than my torso.”
The 22-year-old also says you shouldn’t be afraid to take some fashion risks. “I don’t think you should be nervous about trying new trends. I think you should just be confident and bold in your decisions and so what if no one else is wearing it, as long as you think it’s fun,” she explained.
Sarah, who’s petite, is currently loving platform sneakers for a casual, everyday look. “I have four pairs of wedge sneakers,” she shared. “I want more. I’m 5’2″… I need all the help I can get. They’re all super comfortable.”
She’s also learned that dressing down can be hot, thanks to her on-screen mom Julie Bowen. “Tomboys can be sexy, too,” Sarah told us. Even though she can sometimes embrace her inner tomboy, at the end of a long day filming on set, Sarah likes to make sure her face is super clean. “I’m obsessed with Neutrogena makeup remover wipes,” she says of her beauty must-have. “I always have been. That’s the only way I clean my face!”
When asked what her favorite red carpet look so far was, Sarah described her 2013 SAG award dress to us. “I wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress,” she shared. “It was purple and it just brought out the green in my eyes. It was sexy but really elegant and classic at the same time.”
Sarah says she’s not afraid to repeat outfits, just like Kate Middleton. “I still wear clothing that I wore freshman year of high school,” she confessed. “I haven’t grown much. I am the biggest repeat outfit offender of all. Once I find a good outfit, I wear it for like days and hope I don’t see the same person twice in a row.”
Not that you’d need to repeat clothes with the Op collection, which retails exclusively at Walmart. Considering how reasonably priced the line is (Sarah’s tank top is only $5), you can afford to buy a bunch of pieces to last you all summer long!
