Julee A. Wilson
Staff Fashion Editor Julee Wilson can trace her passion for fashion all the
way back to second grade, when she often attempted (always unsuccessfully)
to sneak her beloved tutu and princess dresses to school. Fast forward a few
decades and Julee now gets to, essentially, play dress-up everyday!

In her current role, Julee writes fashion stories and oversees the
contemporary clothing and accessories markets while also extending Real
Simple’s ever-growing brand on national TV and at events around the country.
Before landing in the fashion department, Julee served as an assistant to
the managing editor, Kristin van Ogtrop.

Prior to joining Real Simple, Julee completed internships at Bergdorf
Goodman, Vibe, Condé Nast Traveler, and Parenting. She has a B.A. in
Leadership Studies from the University of Richmond (VA). Julee lives in
Manhattan with her soon-to-be husband and a massive shoe collection!
