The ever-lovely Ashley Benson (Hanna Marin) is gracing the cover of August’s Company magazine, and looking stunning doing it in a floral dress, belt, and pink lipstick. What secrets did the Pretty Little Liars starlet spill about both her on-screen counterpart and her own go-to styles? Read on to find out?

This is a very exciting time to pay attention to the fashion of Hanna Marin. Though the Pretty Little Liars character has always been uber-trendy, she’s been going through a bit of an identity crisis in recent episodes as she realizes that the makeover Mona gave her in the wake of Ali’s initial disappearance two years ago is not a reflection of who she truly is. Ash spoke on the topic, telling the mag: “I’m going through a darker period of Hanna at the moment; she’s going to go through an edgy phase. I’m going to have black hair and she’s going to, like, change clothes and be grungier, which I love! So I’m super excited to see where my storyline goes.” Us, too, Ash!

As for Ashley’s off-screen fashion choices, the actress said that, though she generally likes to go casual in her off-time, she has been making more of an effort to mix it up: “It is fun to dress up, but I’m always like, ‘I’m so tired, I just want to put on sweats!’” Ash admitted. “But, recently, I’ve been trying to dress more girly with the help of my stylist, Jamie Schneider. But, at the moment, I just don’t have the things. I’m more of a laid-back type of person, so I love jeans and a tee!” We think Ashley will look stunning, whatever style she chooses!
