Ciara: Urban chic. I like to keep it urban with a test of high end.

I’m more likely to wear a cropped sweatshirt or a pair of high waist jeans. In the night, I definitely love to switch it up. I’m definitely going to be in a pump. I’d love to be in a thigh high Christian Louboutin boots with a hot leather jacket. I’d rock with a Givenchy piece as well.
JonesMag.com: What color will be your color for the season?
