Style Diary x Lexi!

Scroll through the STYLE diary of Texas based college blogger, Lexi! 

What’s your name + the city you’re from?
My name is Alexia (Lexi) Stewart, and I’m from Houston, Texas!

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
My first trend that I’m feeling this season is long and lean. It’s a very clean and crisp trend with a lot of white and long, slim dresses, skirts and pants. I think that culottes would fit into this trend really well. My second trend is saville row! It features things such as herringbone, houndstooth and plaid items. The last trend would have to be the whole oversized and baggy trend that’s going on. I love wearing sweaters and cardigans that are two sizes too big because I enjoy being cozy and comfortable. I don’t have anything that relates to saville row in my closet yet (it can be a little pricey), but I admire the trend so much and love seeing the style on other people!

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?

My three favorite style pieces would be my distressed denim jacket, my oversized burnt-orange cardigan and my distressed mom jeans that I thrifted and made myself!

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
Definitely feel that I don’t have a specific style icon. I love just spending some time browsing Pinterest and Instagram looking at outfits and trying to create something similar, but unique out of things I already own. If I HAD to pick, these are a few of my favorite Instagrammers whose styles I enjoy:

I love them because their styles are very simple and minimalistic. A lot of basics with a few iconic statement pieces. That’s the direction that I want my wardrobe to go in for 2019.

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?
Oh my gosh, this was literally me towards the end of the semester because sleeping in just felt so amazing. I have two different scenarios with this. If my hair is natural, I usually put it in a high bun. I’ll put on my denim jacket with my black mesh leggings, a basic white or black t-shirt with a bralette, and my black adidas NMD’s. If I have a protective style such as braids or weave, I definitely make sure to grab my black adidas hat as well. It’s an outfit that is extremely comfortable, basic, still cute and falls into the ongoing trend of athleisure.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number one rule is to never sacrifice comfort for style and trendiness. I had to learn this the hard way. My freshman and sophomore years of college were filled with me wearing wedges, heels, skirts, and tight clothing to class. Eventually, I got tired of doing that and focused on pleasing myself and just being comfortable. You can still look cute and feel cozy and comfy too!

Style Diary x Schymera!

Scroll through the STYLE diary of Toronto based teen vlogger + model, Schymera! 

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
This season I’m really feeling bandeau tops, off the shoulder tops, and jean skirts. Whenever I wear any of these three things, I feel like I can stand out in my own way and express who I am. Bright coloured bandeau tops or off the shoulder tops looks amazing on sunny days and I wouldn’t change it for anything else.

If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
I would most likely grab a bandeau top of any colour, jean skirt, and either a jean jacket or a light sweater over depending on where Im going or how I’m feeling. This is an outfit that I would feel most comfortable in and able to move around in if I’m with friends. It also shows off a bit of my own style.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
I honestly have so many fashion icons but I am stuck between Ariel Martin (@babyariel) and Daniella Perkins (@daniellaperkins). All of their outfits on instagram are just stunning and gives me different ideas of what to wear when I’m going to different places.

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?
If I were to be in a rush which is very often, I would probably throw on a nice pair of tights, and top and a sweater to go over. This is my go to outfit because its not too fancy but it shows enough style while being super comfortable. I would also wear my favourite necklace and small bracelet just to spice up the outfit a bit.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number one rule is to dress as yourself and in something that you can be yourself while being comfortable in. I had to learn that the hard way because I always dressed to impress and it never fit who I was and it looked off. So always wear what you can be yourself in and forget about the criticism.

Over It? Find Your Fit!

Pulling, tugging, yanking. Nope, we’re not describing a new dance challenge but how you constantly feel when you wear that new dress or cute off-the-shoulder top. Fashion can be a girl’s best friend but sometimes once the clothes come out of the bag + on you, it doesn’t feel or look like the perfect match. Before you blame the store lighting or the unrealistic mannequin sizes, check out these 4 tips that will never have your look falling flat again:

Umm Different Size?- Okay, we get that you can squeeze into a smaller size but the only problem is that you can’t exhale. When you’re shopping shake any beauty standards + sizes out of your head and simply go for a fit that is comfortable to you. Even if it’s a larger size than you’re used to buying, you’ll feel + look more comfy. And the same rule applies if you need to go for a smaller fit too!

Underneath It All- Just like the chic condos you see downtown, the outside structure wouldn’t look so glamorous if they didn’t have a good foundation. And yes, we’re talking about the magic of an amazing bra when it comes to your foundation. Not only will you see a major improvement in how your clothes fit but you can retire the “tug + pull” move you sneak to readjust your bra around campus. Need some guidance of where you can snag the perfect one? We have you covered! True & Co. will give you fit, comfort + confidence all wrapped into one. A TRUE-ly amazing bra can seriously change your entire life. Trust us now + thank us later!

Trend Overload!- We completely get that there’s a brand new trend every time you scroll on Instagram or hit play on YouTube BUT that doesn’t mean you have to wear them all. The beauty about style is that you have key pieces that are your staples which anchors your look. After finding pieces you absolutely love + that represents you then you can filter what trends work well for you. Never feel pressured to rock something that doesn’t help tell your personal fashion story.

Kick Up The Confidence- And last but not least is owning + slaying every piece you’re wearing. Many times your outfit looks great and the only piece that’s keeping it from being runway-worthy is you second guessing yourself. Word of advice: Get out of your head and step into who you are. Remember, you’re always the cool girl in the room simply because you create the environment + does not let the environment create you.

So rock on, Rockstar, rock on.
