Rose Li

Inspiration is everywhere with @thecreativeclassicist. Raised in Melbourne, now a New Yorker, you'll find Rose stepping back to strike a pose throughout the streets, shops, and plethora of public spaces the city has to offer; her genuine presence across social media is a gift to those seeking style. Shop a closet packed with Chanel, A. W. A. K. E. and more for her indulgent spin on timeless looks. 

What does the word "Muse" mean to you?

Inspiration - both the tangible and intangible. 

You work full-time outside of content-creating. What are some of your workwear staples that are worth the investment?

Without a doubt, blazers. Blazers are one of my favorite things to wear both in and out of the office. The tailoring brings instant polish (and power) and lets you push the envelope with workwear.

Word around town is you’re a Tibi super-fan. Tell us what draws you to the brand most and why you love their silhouettes.

I love Tibi for their modern but refined take on both classics and trend-forward pieces, plus their focus on the details. All my Tibi pieces have these small, clever details that add to practicality and luxury, from a single pocket on a summer dress to a precise high-cut neckline on a tee.

Name an emerging designer you think everyone should know about.

I recently discovered Marina Moscone, a New York-based designer whose pieces are bold and minimal. 

What’s your secret to balancing creative and classic?

I definitely lean on my pieces to do the hard work! I look for classic pieces with modern details or I'll opt for a bold piece that has a certain restraint and wearability. Most importantly, experiment a bit and have fun with your wardrobe - we all get it a little wrong from time to time and that’s part of the fun!
