Style Diary x 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.

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!

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.

Cool- Of course, the first  ‘C’ is cool.  Not only do you want to be fly as you’re rockin’ your wide-brimmed hat but you also want to be physically cool too! Back-to-back shows going from stage to stage can have your body temp rising while you’re vibin’ to your favorite artists. So cut offs, loose fitting tanks and sun glasses are all great must-haves to keep the sweat down this year.

Chic-  Yes, keeping it laid back chic is important too. Even if  you’re going to keep it cool with some skin out make sure it’s still stylish and not over the top exposure. If you’re rockin’ a pair of cut-offs pair it with an off the shoulder shirt or if you’re wearing a crop top pair it with a longer flowing skirt. You get the drift, right?

Comfy- Grass, dirt + mud sometimes aren’t the best accessories  with a fresh fit so make sure to keep it comfy. Footwear is key!  A pair of gladiator sandals or combats (especially with toe stomping) are great go-to options. If you’re not comfy, how can you sing all the lyrics to your fave artist’s song?

Creative -Staying on trend is great but adding your on touch is what style is all about. Borrow your mom’s broach or vintage boots and remix them to fit your look. Take risks and have fun when festival hopping this year.

Chill- Let’s chill!!! Chill and enjoy the music. Whatever you put on make sure you can move, dance and have a ball with your friends with whatever you wear.
