How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as a feminine take on masculine fashion. I absolutely love men’s clothing – so many of my favorite pieces were actually my Dad’s! But of course, I love women’s fashion, shopping, and feminine prints, so my style is really a combination of the two. I also always need to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. I love designing outfits that are comfy but chic at the same time. Shorts and tights, boyfriend jeans, and oversized knits are my go-to’s for everyday looks. And, I can’t leave my room for the day without my rings. They’re essential to every outfit I wear!

Must have accessory for winter?

My must have accessory for winter is a warm, oversized cardigan. And a huge knit scarf to bundle with! I can’t pick just one.

Style Inspirations?

Men’s fashion is a huge inspiration for me! I also get a lot of my inspiration from street style and street photography blogs. I love the uniqueness and individual flare people put into their looks, mixing pieces from different eras, places, and styles. 

Favorite Store?

My favorite store is definitely Zara. I can’t walk in there without immediately wanting at least half a dozen things.

Major/ Minor?

I haven’t declared yet, but I think I’m a Finance major with an IDCC minor.
