Recently we spoke with one of our favorite fashion gurus, Jeffrey Kalinsky, owner of his namesake multi-designer boutiques and founder of Jeffrey Fashion Cares. We talked fall fashion and his love for Spanx as he gears up for the 22nd annual benefit and fashion show in Atlanta next week. It’s August 25th (you should be there!) and supports Atlanta AIDS Fund and Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s Greater Atlanta Affiliate—a perfect pair indeed.

Spanx: What’s the must-have item for fall?
JK: Leggings are a must-have for fall. They are the perfect base for all of the great coats, motorcycle jackets, tunic tops, and chunky sweaters that are so important for this season.
Spanx: What inspired this season’s JFC theme: Prevention in Pairs?
JK: It is our 22nd show which benefits two wonderful charities. We want everyone to grab a friend and join us as we support Atlanta AIDS Fund and Komen Atlanta. Help us continue to grow, and grab a friend!

Spanx: What are your tips for getting dressed in jeans and how do you recommend women style their favorite pair?
JK: The best way to wear a jean is to make sure that they’re really narrow on the leg and slightly cropped. Throw on a pair of pumps and you’ll look long and lean every time.
Spanx: Former JFC Honorary Chair and Spanx founder Sara Blakely likes to say that SPANX is the canvas and clothes are the art. Can you leave us with a piece of SPANX wisdom?
JK: Fashion makes fantasy and SPANX makes magic.
