I’m obsessed with Fran Miller’s line of skincare, F. Miller. Turns out, I’m also obsessed with her personal style. And the personal style of her stylist fiancé, Jackie McKeown. Really just obsessed with the two of them overall, but maybe I’m biased that they’re from my homeland of Toronto. Either way, here they are, in what might be our first ever joint three looks? Yeah!
Describe your style in 3 words.
Fran: Comfortable, minimal, diverse.
Jackie: Laid back, tomboy, detailed.
What is your ideal uniform to wear every day?
Fran: Oversized or straight-leg denim, a white tee, sculptural earrings and some form of mule/slide.
Jackie: A trouser or sport pant, oversized top and one of many pairs of sneakers in our closet.
What’s the best piece of style advice you’ve ever received?
Fran: Quality over quantity.
Jackie: Dress for yourself.
Do you have a fashion muse?
Fran: I’m inspired by so many different women, past and present – Joan Didion, Jane Birkin, Lauren Hutton, Patti Smith, 90s Kate Moss, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Annina Mislin, and Mari Giudicelli.
Jackie: I’m mainly drawn to men’s fashion and love the style of people like Simon Rasmussen (Office Mag) and Matthew Williams (Alyx). I also have a strong appreciation for women that can rock a tailored look like Diane Keaton. Most of my inspiration comes from everyday people, generally those with no interest in fashion but who still put themselves together in unique, unexpected ways.
How does living in Toronto influence the way you approach style?
Jackie: Weather has to be the biggest factor when it comes to Toronto style. Winters can be brutally cold, snowy and wet, so footwear and outerwear becomes limited. I really try to take advantage of all four seasons and get creative when it comes to layering and jackets.
Fran: I feel like Torontonians like to talk about the weather a lot but it’s true – the challenge for me is choosing transitional pieces that are still polished and comfortable. And a really good coat. Toronto is a metropolis but there is a very laid back aspect to it as well so you’re never boxed in to one specific style. I generally dress for my mood or what I’m doing that day.
