7 Questions With #GirlBoss Amber Farr Of Flynn Skye On Holiday Dressing

If you haven’t heard of Flynn Skye, this brand needs to be on your radar. From off-the-shoulder maxi dresses to floral-print rompers, every piece oozes boho-cool Cali vibes. Did we mention the label also has a celeb following? Shay Mitchell and Vanessa Hudgens are fans, and those girls know what’s up when it comes to fashion.

We had the chance to chat with Amber Farr, the #GirlBoss behind Flynn Skye, about all things holiday dressing (because, Thanksgiving, DUH). Read her tips and clothing picks below:

SHEfinds: Let’s talk Flynn Skye. What inspired you to start the label? 

Amber Farr: A few years ago I needed a career change. I had a vision for this line and it organically happened. This career switch has turned into something bigger than myself and now is a true passion for me.

SF: What’s your background in fashion? 

AF: I don’t really have a typical “fashion background.” I was an athlete for most of my life, a pro snowboarder and I competed in equestrian vaulting before fashion was ever on my radar. I opened a store on Main Street in Santa Monica called Blonde and after the store closed I was approached by Planet Blue founder, Ling-Su Chinn, to design a line for the store called Blu Moon. I found that I really loved making clothes. I realized that ultimately I just wanted to make clothes that people feel beautiful in rather than following trends.  Shortly after designing for Blu Moon, I started Flynn Skye and I haven’t looked back since.

 SF: The holiday season is here! What are you most excited for? 

AF: I love the holidays! I’m so excited to finally be able to share our holiday collection with everyone. It’s beautiful and feminine and there is definitely something in the collection for everyone. 

SF: What’s your go-to holiday party outfit? 

AF: This season for me it’s all about the Flynn Skye party overalls. I wear them with a sweater underneath or on top, or simply on their own. I will also turn to the Wrap It Up Skirt and top it’s a fantastic set for any holiday party.

 SF: What’s the most important thing to keep in mind when getting dressed for a holiday party? 

AF: In my opinion the most important thing is to always feel like you. If I don’t feel good or feel like myself when I try something on then it isn’t going on my body. Even if everyone at the party is dressed in heels, you will probably catch me in my sneakers. Feeling good in what you are wearing is important to me and that’s how I get dressed for any party any day of the year.

SF: A lot of women are spending time with their in-laws this time of year. Got any tips for what to wear to Thanksgiving/Christmas with the in-laws? 

AF: Flynn Skye is the perfect in-laws attire. Keeping it classy is key. My advice would be to leave the crop top and booty shorts at home and wear something like the Flynn Skye Tyra Maxi dress, or the Dressy Jumper.

SF: What’s the one piece from your Holiday ’15 collection that you think every girl should own? 

AF: The Leah mini. It is just so damn cute….
