Sadly, Lucy Hale isn’t allowed to steal many clothes from the Pretty Little Liars‘ lust-worthy fashion closet. But she doesn’t seem to mind too much.
“[My character] Aria is definitely a little more quirky [than me],” Hale told PEOPLE Tuesday night at a Bongo-sponsored drive-in screening of Pretty Little Liars in L.A. “She’s willing to try anything, mix patterns — there are no limits for her.”
However the actress — a face of Bongo (along with costar Ashley Benson) — is “willing to take risks,” she admitted. “I think just being exposed to Mandi Line, our fashion designer, and dressing up every day as Aria on the show has definitely leaked into my personal life.”
So has this fun fashion exposure paid off for the star? “I think my red carpet style has evolved,” she shared. “I’m a little more sophisticated. I’ve sort of come into my own.”
