Editor-at-Large Jenna Bush Hager talks to three dynamic mother-daughter duos in her hometown of Dallas about bringing Lone Star State glitz to your party attire. Check back tomorrow to meet Deedie and Lela Rose for part three of this three-part series. 

Margaret and her artist daughter, Jin-Ya at Hotel St. Germain

The Huangs are all about community. “We’re from Taiwan; it’s what we’re used to,” Margaret says. “In Texas, we found that welcoming spirit and warmth we missed from back home.” The women’s style is rooted in simplicity—with artistic flair. “Jin-Ya is very creative and combines East and West in what she wears,” says Margaret, a former restaurateur.

Jin-Ya: “During the holidays, I forgo my minimalistic routine for bright shoes, a cheongsam [traditional Chinese dress], and architectural clothing. My mom encourages me to keep art at the center of my life, and that inspires how I dress.”

Margaret: “Jin-Ya is so good about mixing vintage with new—she even wears things her dad wore in the seventies. She inspires me to do the same. I love rotating in my collection of jewelry and shoes from the 1950s.”
