Hot 10: Stassi Schroeder

The former “Vanderpump Rules” maven has gotten off camera and into business.

Stassi Schroeder isn’t your typical TV personality. After stirring up drama and cocktails on Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules,” the 26-year old Louisiana native decided she wanted to get away from the cameras. Stassi decided that a career in high fashion industry better suited her skills, which is why she launched Style by Stassi, a lifestyle guide for women. In an era when reality stars stay reality stars, Stassi is a breath of beautifully fresh air.

The young entrepreneur took a break to chat with MAXIM about feeling feminine, being effortless, and the gorgeous Kate Upton.

I want to keep divulging my style tips to the world and hopefully one day incorporate all of the other things I love under the lifestyle umbrella like cooking, hosting, and interior decorating. 

I feel most sexy wearing a men’s button up shirt. I like when my man has something to unbutton, plus it’s just effortless and unfussy. I feel feminine and sensuous.

Always be a gentleman. Chivalry goes a long way with me. I think it’s such a character revealer in men.

All I need is romance: cuddles, kisses and compliments.

I’m a big Kate Upton fan. Besides the fact that she is absolutely stunning, I just really drawn to her confidence. She’s magnetic! 

It doesn’t matter what we do or where we are on a date as long as that connection is there. It really is just the company.

I love a really good bacon and blue cheese burger. I mean, is there anything better? So satisfying.

I don’t like when a man looks groomed. I like scruff, I like a little hair on the body. I’m not a fan of dudes who shave their bodies or are super meticulous with their looks; I think men should look like men.

Go for the effortless look. A great-fitting pair of tapered pants and a nice t-shirt would do the trick.

I have a feeling that this year is going to be a very exciting one. Everything is shifting. I feel it.
