Style Diary x Tumi!

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
I don’t really wear or follow trends all that often because I find that most of the time it doesn’t align with my own personal style. Also, most of the time I find that I’m not cool enough to pull the trends off, lol. But this season I have to say that romantic silhouettes like ruffles, puffy sleaves and frills have been all the rage for me. I also really love the emphasis on masculine tailoring and the 50’s and 60’s throwbacks that I’ve been seeing in stores.

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
If I only had 30 seconds to grab 3 of my favorite pieces, I would have to grab my vintage check high-waisted ciggerette trousers, my blue leather moto jacket and a crisp white button down.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
My fashion icon is a toss up between Rihanna and Victoria Beckham. One I love Rihanna because she is so bold when it comes to her style and she has no problem oozing straight sex and overt femininity. And two I love Victoria Beckham because she has found the perfect way to balance female elegance in an often masculine persona and attitude, all while making it sexy.

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
I usually go for a pair of loose fit jeans(vintage or boyfriend cut), a button down shirt, jacket and white sneakers. I’m always wearing my masculine gold watch and layered necklaces and if its cold I switch the shirt for a large chunky knit sweater.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number one rule has to be that if it doesn’t feel right then it’s probably not going to look right. When you’re insecure in your outfit it shows, so I make it a rule to trust my instincts.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
Since I’ve started blogging and creating youtube content, I’ve been so interested in other creators. AnnieDrea is my favorite youtuber and her fashion sense really pushes the envelope. She’s never afraid to wear anything, which is how bold fashion is.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
I love to look effortlessly put together so I’ll throw on a college paraphernalia shirt or sweatshirt, and a pair of ripped jeans with slip on sneakers. This look is also comfortable for class.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
Wear whatever you want to wear, and make it flattering.

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
My favorite trends would have to be knee-high boots, velvet boots and of course, I can’t forget the fur. Knee-high boots have always been my favorite, they’re simple but can bring together any outfit. I’ve also been slowly falling in love with velvet. Velvet pieces have been becoming quite popular lately but for me, velvet boots (especially velvet ankle boots) have become my favorites. Lastly, fur has been making it’s come back but what really made me start loving fur – Fur cuffed jeans. I’m in love with those.

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
I love adding scarfs to my outfits so those have to come first. Next, I would get a denim jacket because you can never go wrong with a denim jacket. Lastly, I would pick high waisted jeans, they’re comfortable and easy to work with, so you gotta love them.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
My fashion icon would definitely have to be Rihanna. I just love the touch of boldness incorporated into her outfits. Whether it be the thigh-high boots or the bright colors, she is always able to make a statement with her outfits. Rihanna’s outfits are always unique and I think show a true reflection of herself. I like to put the most into every outfit and always add my own touch to every look because I want to portray my character and creativity as much as I can through my style.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
My go-to look is an oversized jumper, comfy jeans, and high boots. I try to go with the warmest and most comfortable option, and when it comes to a nice oversized jumper you can’t go wrong. To keep things simple, I pair it with plain jeans. I really big fan of boots and I will admit I’ve got a few, so I head straight for my boots. Naturally, boots are not much of an option during the warmer months so my pair of white converse would be my​​ summer go-to footwear.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
When it comes to style I think it’s important for people to try and stay true to themselves. If there is a certain style that you really like and you feel comfortable in, never hold yourself back. Style yourself in what you love and feel your best in. Everyone has a different perspective on fashion, so embrace it. Use your opportunities to express what fashion really is to you because you are you and no one can take that away from you.

Style Diary x Samara Marshall!

Scroll through the style diary of college student + fashion blogger, Samara Marshall:

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
Okay, three trends that I am currently loving is velvet, florals and my favorite has to be denim on denim. Velvet really caught my attention last year as I saw theses pieces everywhere from Macy’s, Old Navy and even Ross. What I really like about this trend is that when I look for clothing I typically look at the print and that print usually is the focal point of my outfit so having the focal be a texture had been different yet fun. Next would have to be florals. I don’t know what it is but I just love floral print probably because it seems to bring a bright and cheery look to my outfit. Last but not least is denim on denim. I swear everytime I wear denim on denim I feel like I am in the streets of New York because that’s wear I first saw this type of style. It’s just so chic and daring and it has become one of my go to looks.

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
Oh gosh, that’s hard! One would have to be my denim jacket from Forever 21. What I like about it is well, it’s denim so I can pair it with anything and second it has photos sewn on to the back so it adds a unique touch! Second, would have to be my black booties from Charlotte Russe. I have had theses booties for almost four years now and they have really made a more simple outfit of mines evolve into something more. Lastly, I have to say is just plain black jeans. I know that sounds rather boring but black jeans are my favorite because I can pair anything with them.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
When I look for style inspiration I just look on Pintrest at random peoples posts. I guess you can say any and everybody is my style inspiration because we all have different and unique styles. Sometimes I might see a particular piece of clothing that someone is wearing and I might say “Hmm, let me try that”. Now, if I was going to a really big event I might have to take a few notes from Zendaya. Her style is everything and she truly stands out when she is on the red carpet. I literally have a whole board on Pintrest board dedicated to her looks because in all seriousness she just had to have her own board because she just stands out!

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
I am litterally in a time crunch everyday going to class so I usually result to a pair of jeans, a top and a cardigan or jacket. This morning actually I got up rather late and had a few minutes to get out the door so I ended up getting a dark pair of jeans, a white turtleneck top and a maroon cardigan. Typically, this is my usually look and the cardigan or jacket is added to help better complete the outfit. As for shoes I just go with boots because it’s still cold where I am.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
Wear whatever you want and don’t be afraid to venture out and try new things! My style cannot be summed up in one word, I like to venture out and wear different pieces. If I want to wear something with a boho feel I will wear it or if I buy something that is more girly then you best believe I will rock it. I know that kind of sounds like my outfit choices are all over the place but it’s fun to experiment. I fell in love with fashion because it is fun and that’s what I really want others to kind of see that fashion is not boring but can really bring joy or bring you confidence.

Style Diary x Nzinga Suluki-Bey!

Scroll through the style diary of  Philly based teen style blogger, Nzinga Suluki-Bey:

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?

My three favorite style pieces are black bottoms, big sweatshirts and gold accent jewelry. In the morning usually only have 30 seconds to decide what to throw on and it’s always black bottoms and one of my favorite sweatshirts. Of course I have been taught to wear earrings and they just always happen to be gold.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?

I do have to say this was the easiest question because its a mantra of mine. My number one rule is “You wear the clothes. The clothes shouldn’t wear you!” Before fashion, I was just a little girl putting on clothing until I found the meaning of self expression. So now when I dress I always remember that I make the clothing on my body look good.

Getting ready for class can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to look if you’re in a rush?
My go-to-look when I’m in a rush is all black jeans, my Miles Culture sweatshirt with a simple t-shirt, gold earrings, my Michael Kors watch and Stan Smith orange and white sneakers. My go-to look is always comfort and simple only when I’m in a rush otherwise I would wear a nice jacket. I always think that people have that one favorite clothing piece and mine in 2018 will be my sweatshirts.

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
Although I love my sweatshirts with everything that is not my favorite trend this season. I love the amount of breaking the unwritten rules of fashion. I wear white all the time even after labor day. I also wear a lot of jeans that have accent pieces on them which are why I wear and love that fashion trend. Before jeans with accents, I didn’t know what I was missing. Now my jeans have zippers, spray paint, words or patches on them. Now my third and final trend is self expressive clothing. T-shirts that have #blacklivesmatter, sheorthority and black by popular demand. I mean I am obsessed with clothing that shows someones best self.
Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?

I, Nzinga, love expressing myself. Showing people my voice has never been a problem, but when it comes to showing my style to others it’s always been hard. I have now learned from Kat Graham that it doesn’t matter what people think about what you put on your body because it’s about being true to oneself. My ultimate fashion icon is Kat Graham because she doesn’t have a set style and that drives people crazy. They try and define her as this person that she isn’t and she indulges them with just a taste of who she is. Kat Graham wears 90’s one day and she’s a hippie another. Sometimes she even brings out old trends like bell bottom jeans or women suits on the red carpet. Kat Graham has showed me that when my mother and aunts say I wear tom boyish shoes just smile and say thank you. She has also showed me to spread my wings a little when it comes to ones closet. Without Kat Graham I don’t think I would have started my blog because she became a producer without knowing anything. She started being the face for a nonprofit because she wanted to give back. If any star influenced me it would be her. My ultimate fashion icon is Kat Graham because I see myself in her, it is that simple.
