What’s your name, age + the city you’re from?

Hey, hey! My name is Me’Kaila Daniels-Bryant. I’m 20 years old and I’m from Charleston, South Carolina.

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?

My top 3 trends of this season is denim, prints/bright colors and bold jewelry. Denim is a piece you can add to almost any outfit and there’s nothing like a pair of jeans that are flattering, comfortable and stylish. Cropped tops are in now and they have been over the course of time. I’m convinced they are here to stay. Since my weight loss journey I feel more comfortable in my skin so why not throw on a cropped shirt. It’s sort of empowering in way for me. I’ve also taken more of an interest in chain necklaces this season with bold silver and gold  layering.

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

If I had 30 seconds to grab my favorite style pieces it would be a nice handbag, my 3 inch black ankle heeled platform boots and my chain necklaces.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?

If I had to say who is my ultimate fashion icon it would be Beyoncé. She is a Virgo like me, in fact we have the same birthday so I feel a connection to her style on a deeper level. She always pays attention to the details when putting a look together. I feel like it’s not just about brands for her it’s how she feels when she puts the whole look together. That’s what matters to me; the details.  Most importantly, the attitude you have with the look is everything. You’re  only going to look as good as you feel. She gives off such confidence with her style. It represents being bold, unique and staying true to yourself. Everyone remembers at least one Beyoncé look that was their favorite.

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?

Getting ready in the morning can be stressful especially if you’re on a time crunch. My go-to look when I’m in a rush is a turtle neck cropped shirt long sleeve or no sleeve, high waisted jeans and my black  ankle heeled platform boots.

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

Lastly, my number 1 rule when it comes to style is to be true to yourself! It’s not all about brands and trends, it’s about the way you feel when you put a look together. Your attitude completes the look. You’re only going to look as good as you feel.

Scroll through the teen Style Diary of L.A. based fashion-lover, Mechellé!

What’s your name, age + the city you’re from?

My name is Mechellé pronounced Me-shell-lay, I’m 15 years old, and I live in Los Angeles, California but I’m from Richmond, Virginia.

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

My top 3 trends this season is long oversized jackets (I have this super long puffer jacket that goes down to my ankles and it’s the best thing ever), leather pants are so cute right now, and lastly, corset tops.

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

I can’t leave the house without earrings! Earrings and jewelry make you look like you put a lot of effort into your outfit when you really didn’t. Next, I would grab some platform sneakers to add some spice to it. Lastly, I would take a denim jacket for some extra warmth and because they’re cute lol.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?

I love Rihanna or Bella Hadid for their edgy street style. I think it really shows their personality and plus they both look stunning in them!

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?

My go-to look is probably a graphic tee and jeans with a statement jacket or shoes to spice it up.

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

My number 1 rule is…wear what YOU want to wear! I’ve found myself in a lot of situations where I want to wear something but don’t because I’m afraid of people’s opinions. But I realized it doesn’t matter what people think. Be different, be you!

Scroll through the teen Style Diary of YouTuber + actress, Mykell!

What’s your name, age + city you’re from?

Hi! My name is Mykell Williams, I am 18 years old, and I am a Youtuber and an Actress from Fayetteville, Georgia. 

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?

As we approach Fall, I am excited to play with layers, mesh turtleneck shirts and DIY.

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

OOF 30 seconds! I’m guessing that I’m wearing braids because I would literally spend an hour on my hair. The first piece would be a cute hat (baseball cap or beret). The hat will be paired with a “spunky” graphic tee, highlighting one of the colorways because we LOVE color coordination! For the third piece, I’ll grab a statement purse.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?

Robyn. Rihanna. Fenty… is there anything left for me to say?! But on a serious note, Rihanna is the embodiment of “confidence is the best accessory”. Her confidence is the reason why she can pull off those looks. As someone who wasn’t comfortable in their skin, constantly seeing Rihanna challenge the stylistic norm for a woman of color inspired me to do the same. 

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?

For my go-to morning look, I would probably wear gold hoops, a “Jean on Jean” set, a colorful top, statement purse, and black sneakers.

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

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” —Oscar de la Renta

Whenever I style a piece I like to have complete creative control. I want to make sure that what I am “creating” is solely coming from me. That I am not letting negative comments deter me from what I set out to do. That I am creating art. That I am allowing myself to be challenged. As long as the outfit elevates who I am as a person, I’ve done my job!

Scroll through the Style Diary of teen blogger, Kira Robinson!

 

What’s your name, age + the city you’re from?
My name is Kira Robinson, I’m 17, and I’m from Atlanta, Georgia.
 
Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
My top three trends would have to be basically anything cheetah print, platform shoes or sandals, and shell necklaces.
 
If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
ONLY 30 seconds!! It’s takes me like 30 minutes to pick out my outfits haha. I’d probably grab some oversized jacket, my doc martens, anddd a simple necklace.
 
Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
That’s a good question. I don’t really have a style icon, I mostly just kind of wear however I’m feeling that day (if that makes any sense). I also tend to mindlessly scroll on Instagram and then if I see someone wearing something I like, I save it so this folder I have called “fashion.” yes I know, how original. By now I’ve accumulated tonsss of pictures in this folder, so I guess you could say I get my style inspo from Instagram! 
 
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?
 My go-to look would probably be high waisted jean shorts, nike air force 1s, my gold cross necklace, my gold star choker, small gold hoops, and some cute graphic tee.
 
What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My #1 rule when it comes to style is to be yourself. It’s not required of you to follow the crowd. I wear whatever I like and sometimes it may not be considered “trendy.” But I dress for myself and if I like it, then that’s all that matters. If you don’t want to follow trends then don’t. Remember no item of clothing is ever wrong if you like it 🙂

Scroll through the style diary of teen blogger, Taylor Cassidy!

 
What’s your name, age + city you’re from?
My name is Taylor Cassidy, I’m sixteen, and I live in St Louis!
 
Style is showing who you are without having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
You’re completely right. I express and communicate through my fashion all the time.  If you see me walking down the street, you’ll know my mood by my clothes. Because fashion design is my dream once I get older, the world of fashion is in every corner of my life. Funky earrings are my thing. My friends can catch me styled with watermelon ones, some that look like faces, or even a pair that resemble Oreos. In conjunction with earrings, one can never go wrong with the simple T-shirt and skinny jeans trend. Just roll up the hem twice, tuck the shirt in (don’t forget your earrings!)and your good to go! This season I’ve really been into a good pair of sandal heels. With summer approaching, adding a pair of short- heeled sandals can make any outfit exude a bold femininity. 
 
If you had 30 seconds to grab your 3 favorite style pieces, what would they be?
This is a hard question. I know that if I were to plan a trip where I need to pack very light, I would never forget my St. John’s Bay rain jacket that I found at the thrift store. It was a man’s extra large, but it just looked way too good on me to pass up. In addition, you will rarely see me without my Tommy Hilfiger Slip ons. They are easy to take on and off and they look like trendy tennis shoes while still having a unique touch. For me, it’s all in the details, so the last thing I would grab would be a couple of rings. If you were wearing a simple long sleeve, jeans, and a pair of those heeled sandals, adding a subtle bling will make it so memorable. There are usually super affordable ones at Forever 21.
 
Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
Well, first off, personal style to me is taking inspiration from each and every person, art-piece, or feeling that you may experience. However, if I had to pick one (which is so hard!) I would choose between Yara Shahidi and the character Whitley Gilbert from A Different World. Yara serves me a contemporary street style with a side of elegance with each look. She’s a great role model for young black women as well, which makes her outfits ten times better! Whitley was one of the first black women I saw on Tv when I was younger and said to myself, “I want that outfit!” Now, as a sixteen year old, I can appreciate the nostalgia and make it modern, leaving out Whitley’s (although we love her!) not-so-humble attitude!
 
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 know this is extra, but I always pick my outfits the night before. It gives me a clearer head, I can have more fun, and it takes off one less thing to do in the morning. However, if I woke up an hour late and I have a test first period, I’d slap on a pair of Adidas sweatpants with the bottoms rolled up, tuck in a graphic tee and throw on a jacket or cardigan, wear white sneakers, and make sure to pick my favorite pair of earrings (it’s the watermelon ones by the way).
What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
Listen, if you have the plainest outfit in the whole room, if you’re wearing a new garment and you’re not sure how people will react, just know that you exude an energy. How you carry yourself is an addition to your outfit. Your facial expression is an accessory. People will know that you love your outfit by the way you wear it, so my tip is to know who you are before you get dressed. It’s easy to dress like someone your not, but when you express yourself fully, that’s when you’ll feel best. Try new things and be open to change, but first have a foundation in your mind and accessorize from there.

Style Diary x Carri!

Fashion, Latest | by — April 2, 2019

Scroll through the style diary of college blogger, Carri Rogers!

What’s your name + the city you’re from?

My name is Carrington Rodgers. I am From Garner, NC. But I currently live in Greensboro, NC and attend the NC Agricultural & Technical State University.

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?

Mom Jeans, Oversized Anything and Natural Hair. Mom Jeans are a staple in my wardrobe. I found my favorite pair at a thrift store. You can dress them up or down and the look will never disappoint. The key to the perfect oversized look is the men’s section. Do not hesitate to look outside of your designated section to find the look you are going for. Natural Hair has been the staple of my look for a while now. The styles are endless, but my favorite by far is my fro. It adds an edge to every look that I could not possibly get from a piece of clothing.

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

Jean Jackets, Gold Chain, Hoop Earrings.  Jean jackets are a versatile garment that can be worn over a shirt, or even as a shirt. I could wear the same denim jacket for a week and style it a different way everyday. Why waste money on pieces that can only be worn one way when you could get the most out of every garment in your closet. A Gold Chain just adds a minimalist touch to any outfit. It accessorizes without doing too much. Hoop Earrings can take any look from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds. They add a bit of personality to each outfit that is unmatched.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?

Most people might name a celebrity when asked this question but my inspirations are my mom and sisters. Being the youngest, I always wanted to keep up with them, whether that be putting on some heels with my jeans or rocking some of my sister’s clothes. I aspired to have the unique ability they portray to pull a look together in a matter of seconds. As I grow, I’m learning their secret is confidence.

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?

In college, it is so easy to just throw on anything to go to class. My go to recently has been two piece outfits because the look is already put together for you. Not having to put a whole look together saves a lot of time and energy. Just add a few accessories and you’re good to go!

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

As I said before, the key is confidence. Whatever you wear, wear it with confidence and a smile. Not every look is meant for every person, so don’t always aspire to look like others. Instead, aspire to have others wish they could look like you. There is only one you, act like it! Be bold, don’t be afraid to step out of the box, who knows you could start the next fashion trend.

What’s your name + the city you’re from?
I am Aleyah Joseph and I am from Harlem, New York

Style is showing who you are with out having to speak! Name your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season?
My Top three trends are suit sets, over sized jackets/trench coats & metallics

If you had 30 seconds to grab your  favorite style pieces, what would they be?
If I had 30 seconds to grab my fav style pieces they would be my fur coat + my circle mcm bag from the heritage collection.

Style inspo is everything! Who’s your ultimate fashion icon + why?
I don’t really have one specific style icon, but ultimately I would choose x_carms on Instagram because her style is relatable, chill, but yet unique at the same time. Also, I’m inspired by the artist Aaliyah and her laid back style + oversized looks.

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?
My go to look if I’m in a rush is to wear my hair in a high bun w/ my baby hair slicked, a hoodie/ cropped sweatshirt, ripped/ high waisted jeans, cute sneakers, and my trench coat.

What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number 1 rule is to stay yourself through it all b/c sometimes a trend is not for you and it’s okay. Always stick to what you feel comfortable in b/c you’re wearing it.

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:

discoverbella
speakoftheangel
laurajadestone
thepatriciabright
itsdemib

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!
