Lucy Hale puts faith in costume designer

Pretty Little Liars' costume designer, Mandi Line, loves dressing Lucy Hale because her character takes "risks".

The stunning brunette plays Aria Montgomery in the ABC Family drama show about four high school girls trying to find out who murdered their best friend.

Mandi Line is the mastermind behind the girls' impressive onscreen looks and has revealed why Lucy is the most fun to dress.

“Aria, because she takes risks," she answered when asked by WWD.

"There is nothing Lucy Hale doesn’t trust me with.”

Season four started in the US last week and Mandi promises Lucy and fellow Pretty Little Liars girls Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario and Shay Mitchell will be sporting some exciting footwear.

According to the designer, everything will be "higher, taller and louder" and there is one kind of shoe trend fans should be keeping an eye out for.

“Look for the platform Nikes. The girls die for them," she smiled.

"And you should always play the game, ‘How many boots can Mandi put the girls in for one episode?’ No matter the season, no one in life can have enough boots.”

Mandi uses words such as "daring" and "edgy" to describe the main characters' style.

Her ideas largely come from the things she longed to wear while still a teenager.

“I truly get my inspiration from the scripts and what I couldn’t [wear] fashion-wise when I was in high school,” she revealed.

“Yes, trends affect me, but only a little.”
