Practicing Chastity

by Ivy Julease Newman, as told to S. Tia Brown

Fall 2011 Fashion Week: On the Corner

by Jordan Teicher

February 17, 2011

Though it’s been about five years since Ivy Julease Newman, 28, moved to New York, the notion of wearing all black is still foreign to her. “I’m Southern…Southern people like to wear colors.” When she wants to feel beautiful, she chooses clothes in fuchsia, deep reds and purples. Most of the time, though, she goes with whatever stands out when she opens her closet. “I don’t force myself to get ultra-glamorous if I don’t feel like it,” she says. “Some days require flats, no heels. Other days, you wake up and you say, ‘I want to feel like a superstar.” When it comes to shopping, she also relies on instinct. “If I see something I like, I get it,” she says. “I wouldn’t even know the name of the store I went into.” Since coming to the city from Richmond, Va. Newman has taken more risk with her style. She’s traded in her church stockings for bolder pieces, including her favorite show-stopping orange silk jacket. Working in the arts community, she says, has given her the forum to try new looks. “Anything goes, as long as you can be comfortable in it and you can just rock it.”
