How Chloe Bailey Inspired Halle to Take More Style Risks on the Red Carpet
Chloe and Halle Bailey are getting ready for the holidays. Between releasing solo music, starring in a highly anticipated film, and making one stylish red carpet appearance after another, the sister duo teamed up with Victoria's Secret Pink to curate a holiday gift guide. Featuring cozy intimates, relaxed joggers, and thermal onesies, the festive capsule collection released on Nov. 15.
"We've never given each other a bad gift."
"All we want to do during the holidays is just be with family and be warm, happy, and cute at the same time. So these are all great gifts and also great things to wear during this season," Halle says of the collection, which she describes as "comfortable and cozy." While Chloe's favorite pieces include the fuzzy sweatsuits, Halle points to the cool patterned bralettes as her go-to.
The pair, who say they're both "absolutely" good gift-givers, haven't started Christmas shopping quite yet, but they're certainly in the holiday spirit. They also can't wait to make their special vegan sugar cookies together — an annual Christmas tradition.
In honor of their exciting launch, the sisters open up to POPSUGAR about their favorite gifts for one another, personal style, red carpet fashion, and more. Keep reading for the full interview, and shop select pieces from their collaboration ahead.
On the Best Gift They've Received From Each Other
"We're both giving and we know each other pretty well, so we've never given each other a bad gift," Chloe shares. In fact, for Christmas one year, the two coincidentally got each other the exact same Balenciaga bag in different colors.
Halle says, "We tend to buy each other stuff that we want for ourselves, so when I walked into Balenciaga, I'd seen this beautiful bag, and I got a hot-pink version of it [for Chloe]. And then when we exchanged gifts that year, [Chloe] had gotten me the same bag, but she got me one that was my favorite color, purple. We died laughing, because we do stuff like that all the time. We talk at the same time. We're like twins."
In addition to material gifts, Halle sweetly says Chloe has also given her gifts "in her presence, life lessons, and advice."
On Their Unique Personal Styles
While both Chloe and Halle are all about comfort, they agree that the elder sister is more daring when it comes to fashion. Describing her style as "comfortable, cozy, and flattering," Chloe says she likes to "switch it up and have some fun."
"Chloe's always been so good at finding clothes that just show off her amazing figure," Halle adds. "So I find that as I'm getting older — I'm 22 now — I'm trying to figure out how to do the same kind of thing. I look up to her in that way. She's my style inspiration. Because comfort is key, but you still want to look sexy. It's just finding that balance."
On Stealing From Each Other's Closets
The sisters are both guilty of stealing from the other's closet, though Halle admits she's the one to mostly borrow from Chloe. "Sometimes she'll go, 'Chloe, a box came for you upstairs and I was looking for something cute to wear, so I just went through the clothes,'" Chloe says with a laugh. "We love each other. That's what sisters are for."
As for swapping closets with people outside of their family, they both cite Beyoncé and Rihanna as celebrities they'd love to borrow pieces from.
On the Evolution of Their Red Carpet Style
Both Chloe and Halle have taken more fashion risks and experimented with trends since launching their solo endeavors. "It's been fun doing what's different," Chloe says. "I love to play dress up. If I like something, I just put it on. I think that's how fashion should be. It shouldn't have to be too painful or contrived. If people like your outfit, great. If you don't make the mark and hit it, that's OK, too, as long as you feel cute in that moment."
Halle agrees, adding that she and her sister have helped each other come out of their shells on the red carpet. "[Chloe's] helped me step outside of the box when it comes to what I wear," she says. "I'm really grateful for my big sister in that way because she's been the one who's pushing me to move forward in my confidence when I have to go on these carpets alone."
