The always stylish Julianne Hough is launching her own shoe collection with Sole Society in February, and in a candid new interview with ET, the multi-talented star dishes on her own evolving style -- which has obviously gone through a drastic transformation since she burst onto the scene on Dancing with the Stars.
"My style has completely evolved from when I was first on Dancing with the Stars," the bubbly 24-year-old laughs. "I can actually see the real color of my skin now. I think it was a lot more glitz and glamour and costume, and I think now I'm trying to be a little bit more natural and understated -- but still fun -- but definitely a bit more everyday. I don't think I could walk down the street with some ballroom shoes on, and a little glitzy outfit, and feel comfortable. I think this is way more me now," she says, gesturing to her demure Peter Pan collar sweater.
Julianne acknowledges that her style has definitely become more conservative as she's grown up.
"It's funny when I was younger, it was like, the sexier the better -- you know, always trying to look older and stuff like that, and now it's opposite," she says. "You know, I've got nieces and they're 14 and I don't want them to dress how I dressed. So I think I'm definitely a little bit more conscious of it. Like, I don't wear as short of shorts now, or show my belly. I wear less padded bras, that kind of stuff."
These days, Julianne would refer to her style as "a little bit of class, and a little bit of sass."
"I do have fun opportunities to get dressed up and to find my own voice and my own style, and it's ever-evolving and ever-changing, but it's definitely different in the last couple of years actually," she reflects. "I think that I've really kind of found my own niche and what I feel comfortable with. There's a certain amount of class -- with a certain amount of sass -- to be honest."
But now she's ready to take her fashion game to the next level, partnering with Sole Society on a new footwear collection which consists of everything from flats, heels to sandals, each available in multiple color options. Julianne Hough for Sole Society will introduce five to six styles per month for six months, with prices starting at $49.95.
"I don't know if I've always dreamed of creating shoes in particular, but I've always dreamed of creating in general, she explains. " ... In dancing, or acting or singing, I don't want to just cover somebody else's stuff -- I want to create my own.... and so I want to create my own shoes."
