“When I’m dressing, I want to look put-together; but on the other hand, there’s a messy, natural look to it. If you look at, for instance, French fashion, the way that it’s changed over time, it’s kind of this natural-esque earthy thing. There’s this messy, earthy beauty to it, but it’s still put-together.”

Favorite fashion trend: “Intelligent, but not too hip. I like boho-urban hippy-esque looks, like ‘I have a natural beauty and I don’t have to do a lot to enhance it.’ I really appreciate that look.”



Least favorite fashion trend: “I don’t appreciate seeing women putting over-the-top effort into their outfits. Like, ‘Dude, you’re in college. You don’t need to try that hard.’”

Advice for a fashion-defunct friend: “You should just be like, ‘Oh, this is something that’s easy to throw on and breathes well.’ Functional is really popular right now.”

“I just wear stuff that fits me well. I don’t really like name brands, I usually just go to thrift stores. I stick with plain colors.”

Favorite fashion trend: “I think, ‘to each their own.’ I don’t really comment on anyone’s attire. I think stereotyping isn’t necessary; I definitely go for originality.”

Least favorite fashion trend: “I stay away from name brands.”
Advice for a fashion-defunct friend: “You don’t want something that somebody else is going to be wearing, and that’s what matters most: standing out, being your own individual.”
