Cliché: What are you top beauty/fashion routines?
Ellen Borza: I’ve really come to learn the importance of wearing lipstick in recent months. Now, I hardly leave the house without it. I think it’s important to have a lip color for day and night.
Name the top three products you couldn’t live without this season.
A blanket scarf (so comfy), combat boots, and a great dark nude lip for fall.
Any staple items that you think are fall must-haves?
Again, a blanket scarf is so chic and unbelievably cozy. There’s a reason that it’s called a blanket scarf. I also love combat boots when I want to add an edge to my outfit, but I also love my riding boots too.
What’s your number one tip to feeling confident in what you’re wearing?
I think confidence comes from the inside, and I think you should always wear clothing that makes you feel good and represents the best version of you or who you are in that moment.
What is your favorite piece(s) from your wardrobe?
I just got a navy and white striped sweater dress from the Gap. It’s so comfortable, but it’s also timeless. I’ll be pairing it with my riding boots throughout the fall.
