InStyle.com: Studs are still a big trend. Were there any other trends you wanted to incorporate?

Britney Spears: I used a lot of studs and lace, because I wanted to make the clothes cool and edgy yet girly. I also love jeans, so I had to make sure there were some great pairs in the collection. And I love jewelry so there are a lot of fun pieces. There are great necklaces and big earrings.

InStyle.com: How do you describe your own personal style?

Britney Spears: My personal style is mix of comfortable and flirty. I love cute little dresses but I also love comfy sweaters and jeans.
