An Aspen native, Taylor Tessier has been handcrafting jewelry for 10 years. Her line, Taylor and Tessier, is now carried in nearly 100 U.S. stores—which explains why clothing is often the backdrop for her eye-catching accessories.
Taylor Tessier's casual-chic style
Tessier prefers to dress in simple colors, and adds a hippie flare to her simplistic sense of style with this patterned white skirt. “My style is pretty basic,” says Taylor. “I prefer a clean look. I’m almost always in neutral colors. That way, when I add my jewelry into the mix, it’s not too much. I leave it up to the accessories. The clothing is almost like the backdrop of a painting.”
During the week, you’ll find her at work in her downtown Aspen studio. Come weekends, Taylor and her husband Adam Tessier, who assists in sales and design, work their booth at the Aspen Saturday Market, featuring Western finds and unique jewels.
Taylor’s style is comfortable, yet chic. Her go-to outfit? Boyfriend jeans, a solid tank, a necklace, and layers of bracelets. Inspired by nature, Taylor and Tessier is a combination of wire-wrapped stones, leather, and silver or gold. This mountain lady knows how to keep style simple, yet rich with accessories.
