Cecelia New York Insider: How would you describe your personal style?

Ashley Cole: I would describe my style as chic and effortless.  Not over doing it, dressing with clean lines but also with personality.  

CNYI: Who would you consider your style icon?

Diane von Furstenburg.  She is not only a style icon but she is true to who she is in every way.  Through her style she empowers others. 

CNYI: Seeing you are a shoe expert, what do you consider wardrobe footwear essentials?

I have four children so I’m constantly running around during the day- flats are non-negotiable for me. I love the Cecelia New York Bridget’s they’re effortlessly chic and look great dressed up or down. For the evening I’m putting on a statement stiletto.

“It’s all about a colorful/statement shoe for Spring- that will make any outfit POP!”

CNYI: I’m not sure when you would fit in anytime between running a business, designing the collections, being a wife and mother to four children BUT when you do have time where do you like to shop?

There is always time for shopping… I could browse through Net-a-Porter for hours but the majority of my shopping is at Nordstrom and Bloomingdales. 

CNYI: What are the style trends you will be wearing this Spring?

Definitely loads of shirt dresses, head to toe white, wide leg denim, of course culottes and carrying a big bucket bag.


Shirt dresses (L-R) Moschino, Adam Lippes, 3.1 Phillip Lim all from Net-A-Porter. 

Ashley's must-have heels Lidia and Sabrina.

Get the look with Ashley's black and white lizard Bridget flats.
