Best Dressed (Female)

Jill Strong

“Classy girlie” is how Fran Middleton would describe her boss’s style. Middleton works at Wildflower, a women’s clothing store owned by Jill Strong—your pick this year as Halifax’s most nattily dressed woman. “Classy” explains Middleton, “because when [Jill]’s at work, she looks really professional, like a blazer or cropped blazer, maybe jeans and heels. But she’s girlie because she can pull off a funky peasant skirt with a big belt and maybe a fitted top.” The recipe for Strong’s magical fashion elixir is available simply for the asking. “People come in and say ‘Jill clothe me’ and she’ll know exactly what to show them.”
