Wearing an olive top, large knit cardigan, brown boots and a statement necklace, Stephenie Huot looked cozy, yet pulled-together for a day at work. As the store manager of Kittson and Third, Huot knows a bit about style.

Struggling to take home a paycheck, she's filled her wardrobe with items from Kittson and Third. She said she's not required to wear the store's clothing at work, but she easily falls in love with all of the clothes and accessories.

The 20-year-old East Grand Forks native is a junior studying management at UND. When she graduates, she plans to continue managing Kittson, but said if they open more stores, she'll go wherever she's needed.

• How would you describe your everyday style?

"I love structured outfits, but then I like just cozy, sweaters and boots and scarves. But then I like blazers with nice shirts and necklaces. It really depends on how I'm feeling."

• Where do you typically shop for everyday clothes and accessories?

"Kittson, cause I work here, so I see everything that comes in everyday."

• How do you typically accessories?

"I like to have kind of a lot. I like to belt things, use scarves or necklaces and if I do a scarf I'll do earrings. It depends on how I'm putting it together."

• What's your signature piece?

"Probably big slouchy sweaters and scarves. I'm always in sweaters. Even today, I'm wearing a T-shirt and a sweater over it."

• What piece are you currently craving?

"I love flannel. Flannel is huge right now, so anything flannel I want to get."
