Q1: How would you describe your personal style?
“My personal style is definitely whatever I like when I’m out during the day. I like relaxed fits but still like to be neat and put together. I like dressing monochromatically or with very contrasting clothes. My favorite thing about fashion today is being able to express myself how I want and not being judged for it.”
Q2: Who is your style role model/style inspiration?
“Definitely other kids at FIT. I’m really bad at thinking of cool things on my own, so I draw a lot of inspiration from FIT kids.”
Q3: Where are key pieces from your outfit from?
“Tommy Hilfiger jacket, black t-shirt, Uniqlo socks, and Converse PF Flyers.”
Q4: What is your favorite trend at the moment?
“Cuffed pants, 100%. I love wearing colorful or patterned socks so anyway to show that off.”
Q5: Least favorite trend?
“Definitely super distressed acid-washed jeans.”
Q6: What is your favorite summer item that you can’t wait to break out?
“Definitely Nike running shorts. I’m always out and about and sweating is my least favorite thing.”
