Q&A with Whitney Fredette

Whitney Fredette, wife of NBA player Jimmer Fredette, has a refreshing sense of style that has caught our eye!!  While her husband plays the star on the court, Whitney Fredette definitely brings the style to every game: whether she’s in a bold statement outfit or rocking a simple tee shirt and boyfriend jeans. Super stylish and sweet, Whitney and I talked all about fashion, beauty and new trends!

At basketball games, events, and your Instagram posts, you are always dressed fabulously. So, tell us about your style!

Thank you so much! I love dressing up for games and since they are inside I can wear pretty much anything, which is great! I love to wear a lot of different things and switch up my style. I think for the most part I dress very feminine and preppy. I love to wear leather, so sometimes a little edgy too!

Love! On the left, Whitney’s preppy look: Theory top, Joie pants, Jimmy Choo wedges.
On the right, Whitney’s edgier look: Leather pants and hot-red heeled booties!

What is your favorite fashion piece that you can not have enough of, and why?!

Without question it’s shoes! I love shoes of all kinds. Heels, flats, sandals, and running shoes! I don’t think I could ever have enough!

The fun colors definitely catch the eye!  I wonder what the rest of her shoes collection looks like…?!

What is your favorite store/boutique in Sacramento?

I’m a big fan of Nordstrom! I haven’t found a ton of local shops that I like, so I stick to Nordstrom, J Crew, and Anthropology. I do most of my shopping online though, it’s addicting!

Assuming you travel a lot, what is your favorite city…especially for shopping?!

I have been able to visit some really cool places. In the United States I would have to say Chicago is one of my favorite cities to shop. It has the biggest Nordstrom I’ve ever seen! However, this summer Jimmer and I went to London, and we stopped at Harrods– it was the most incredible place I have ever been. I could have spent days there, so I can’t wait to go back!

Do you have any favorite designers and online websites that you love to shop at? You told me once that you love shopbop.com!

Yes I love shopbop a ton still, it’s my go to! I also fashionphile.com, it sells gently used handbags for really good prices. Another good website is revolveclothing.com. Then of course Nordstrom online, J crew online, and Anthro online.

What is your favorite makeup line? Any favorite pieces?

I love makeup, so I use a lot of different kinds. For my foundation and bronzer I use Bobbi Brown, it’s my absolute favorite and lasts all day. My favorite blush is “orgasm” by NARS- it’s an everyday color that goes with every skin tone. Almost all of my lipstick is MAC, it’s my favorite, and there are so many options with MAC lipsticks. My favorite colors are “Myth”, which is a nude color, and “Candy Yum-Yum”! The candy yum yum color is a really bright pink and really fun to wear!

What is the “go-to” piece in your closet!?

My go-to piece is probably my Rag and Bone boyfriend jeans. One of my favorite looks right now is a boyfriend tee with boyfriend jeans and a cute heel. I love the slouchy look of the boyfriend jeans and the heel just polishes off the look and makes it less casual.

Tell us something you’d like to share about yourself that a lot of people don’t know!

I love to dress up, but I spend a lot of time in workout clothes and sweats with no make up on! I would say almost any day of the week you will find me with leggings and a t shirt with a messy bun on top of my head!

A few of Whitney’s favorite accessories:

Clare V. Leopard-Print Fold-Over Clutch and Eric Javits Fedora

That black fedora will be a good staple piece for the spring! I looked online to find a similar hat for a lesser price and I absolutely love this TOPSHOP ‘New Clean Edge’ Fedora from Nordstrom!

Whitney was such a joy to speak to! I absolutely love her refreshing and chic style. To keep up with her, be sure to follow her on Instagram and Twitter: @whitneyfredette.
