The Style Stop team fell in love with Jan Adams’ striking blue coat. Adams, a Wellesley resident, was in Northampton visiting the Smith College Museum of Art. She says she loves art and considers what she wears to be a statement and an art form.

The Coat: It’s a Nina McLemore coat. I love how bright it is. Nina is a smart woman who realizes women my age have a hard time finding professional-looking, feminine clothes that fit.

Sharing: I get most of my clothes from Nina McLemore trunk shows. In fact, I know one of the company’s representatives so well now that she will just call me and tell me when they have something I might like or look good in.

Shopping: I hate shopping. I can’t stand going to malls. I get overwhelmed looking at everything. I’d much rather be gardening or doing something outside.

The Scarf: The scarf was also picked out for me by a McLemore’s representative. When I bought the coat, I asked her what I would wear with it and she pulled out this scarf. I don’t remember what brand it is but it’s 100 percent silk and hand woven in Nepal. It’s light but warm when I want to be warm and cool when I want to be cool.

Style Icon: Growing up, my style icon was Audrey Hepburn. She wore a lot of black and tan, so I started doing that too. I still wear either beige or black pants almost every day. It makes things simple.
