Being part of the Richie family certainly comes with perks, but it also comes with a price. When asked about a misconception she thinks the world has of her, Sofia admits: "I think people might assume that I'm not driven because of my last name."

In reality, Sofia points out that she works hard and is "constantly setting new goals" for herself. "I’ve managed to find my own lane and there’s still so much I want to accomplish!" she enthusiastically remarks.

The social media personality has been linked to ex-boyfriend Scott Disick and Justin Bieber in the past — not to mention new boyfriend Elliot Grainge — but she's too busy building her own brand to focus on public speculation surrounding her personal life.

She's recently partnered with Rolla's Jeans for their Fall 2021 campaign with Sasha Samsonova following the success of her first collaboration with the brand last February. Given that Sofia has been making a name for herself in the fashion world, she says it was a no brainer to work with Rolla's Jeans again.

"I’ve always loved Rolla’s denim and feel that the brand is very much aligned with my personal style and aesthetic," she explains, before dishing about her favorite Rolla's fall looks.

While experimenting with "different light outerwear trends like trench coats or oversized blazers" this fall, Sofia says she's been pairing her looks with Rolla’s flares or Straight 90s Jean.

Dressing up with a pair of heels is always fun, but Sofia admits, when looking for comfort while being fashionable, she turns to "Rolla’s slouchy sweatshirt or cozy knit tops."

Whether it's designing clothing, walking the runway or partnering with incredible brands, it's safe to say the hardworking fashionista is certainly on the right track.
