If you’re not yet familiar with Monica Rose, you’re definitely familiar with her work. The LA-based stylist has a client roster that boasts it-girls like Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, and Kaia Gerber, to name a few. So basically, she’s responsible for sparking some of the biggest trends over the past couple of years, including chokers which she says are over (RIP).

We sat down with Rose during Weekend Two of Coachella at the Reebok Classics Crib, a 3-day experience that celebrated the pillars of the Classic Leather (fashion, music and fitness), to chat with her about her classic style staples and spring and summer must-haves, as well as what she thinks the next choker, er, big thing is trend-wise. Her answer? Statement earrings.

“Statement earrings are making a big comeback. I was never really an earring girl until [recently]. I just styled Chrissy Teigen in a blazer and wide-leg pants and I put her in a chandelier earring and the whole look was all about the earrings. Invest in a really good statement earring,” she said. (Hopefully Matt Lauer isn’t out there listening, or earrings will be dead before they even get to live.)

Read on for Rose’s ten essentials this season, including Gigi Hadid’s favorite sneaker, and take them to heart. Trust us: This woman knows what she’s talking about.

Scarves are so cool, they can either make or break an outfit. Sometimes my outfit is so boring and then I put a scarf on and I feel so cool. You can turn it around, wear it as a choker, knot it, or tuck it in."

"This is cool because it's very military-inspired. I mean, you could buy this at a surplus store because those are, like, $10. It gives you the effect of being cool without trying so hard."

"I have a whole rack of them in my studio," she said, adding that her "girls" can't get enough of them, either. "I'm always cutting them for my clients, but I just like to do the half-tuck."
