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

My name is Aysia. I’m 20 years old, and I was born and raised in Clinton, Maryland.

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! If you had to line-up your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season what would they be?

My number 1 trend would have to be layers! I feel like layering has really kicked up this year. I think it’s a good way to add different kinds of movement to your outfits. It’s also a great way to get the most out of your closet. It allows you to wear seasonal clothing all year round. For example, a cropped tank top could be worn over a turtleneck. Then you’d have a different look and be warm for the winter!

Coming in second would be Maximalism. I love seeing people turn up the notch and be completely extra when it comes to clothing. Funky patterns, hats, tights—everything. When I see the crazy outfits some people put together, sometimes I wonder how they pull it off.

My number three would be huge, chunky, platform shoes. I’ve wanted to get my hands on a pair, but I haven’t yet. I’ll have to gift myself a pair at some point!

Describe your style in 3 words:

That’s tough! I think my style is funky, a tad bit retro, and a little bit quirky

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

I’ll be honest here; I don’t usually keep up with what other people are wearing. I’ll usually see a celebrity or influencer rocking something unique and sometimes soak that into my own style. 

However, I’d have to say my ultimate fashion icon is my mom! She’s been into fashion since she was a young girl and she loves dressing up. Our  tastes are quite different, but when I put together outfits now for videos and pictures, I often wear clothes that she’s handed down to me.

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to outfit if you’re in a rush?

Anything black! For me, black is the easiest color to style, and I own a lot of it. At one point, I kept my closet fairly neat. It was primarily color coded, and the black section was the largest. My go-to would be to pluck a hoodie or shirt from there, throw on some jeans, add a cute shoe (usually a boot) and be on my way!

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

It would be to make sure you are comfortable with what you are wearing and that you love it! I absolutely hate feeling “meh” in an outfit. I think any outfit that you choose to rock should feel like a second skin. It’s often a reflection of you, and you should feel good in it!

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to outfit if you’re in a rush?
Omg!! I always try to plan my outfits the night before! But, If I fall asleep or forget I go for my light blue angelic mingalondon dad jeans, a plain tank top, a cute-stylish cardigan, and vans! For hair, I will either leave it in a bun or two pigtail braids!
 
 
What’s your number 1 rule when it comes to style?
My number 1 rule when it comes to fashion is to wear something that really makes you feel comfortable and confident. I love dressing up!! And when I wear something that I find is cute or stylish, I feel so confident in myself and feel really comfortable. Also platforms!! You can never go wrong them, they also just make me feel 10x more confident in what I am wearing!

Scroll through the Style Line-Up of Tulsa-based fashion-lover + blogger, Avery!

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

Hey y’all! My name is Avery, I’m 18 (soon to be 19) and I’m from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! If you had to lineup your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season what would they be?

Neutrals are probably my favorite trend from the winter, especially brown and grey since they’re such versatile colors. Besides that, I really live for collars under sweatshirts for that ultra preppy look, and I love plaid shackets (shirt/jacket-hybrid).

Describe your style in 3 words:

I would describe my style as feminine, fresh, and ever-changing because I’m always shopping for the newest trends!

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

My ultimate fashion icons are easily Blackpink. I love their onstage wardrobe SO much. Their outfits really embody a good mix of masculinity and femininity, and their individual styles always complement one another. I want to raid their closets so bad!!

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to outfit if you’re in a rush?

Hmm..my go-to currently would probably be my white turtleneck, ripped mom jeans, white forces with white socks, topped off with a gold necklace + hoops.

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

My number one rule is to wear what you want as long as you’re comfortable. Somebody is always going to have something to say about your clothes, whether you wear what you want or not. So just do what you want with your fits anyways. Life is short!

Style is showing who you are without having to speak! If you had to lineup your top 3 trends you’re feeling this season what would they be?

I am ALLL for the corset-like belts that go around your waist. They can really turn an outfit into a look!  I’ve also been loving the platinum eyebrows. Finally, statement purses/bags are everything! I love unique bags that stand out.

Describe your style in 3 words:

I would describe my style as eye-catching and diverse. I also would call my style “ a look”.

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

Teyana Taylor’s diversity is everything! From her hair to her style— she never lets herself get confined to one category.

Getting ready in the morning can be fun but stressful if you’re in a time crunch, what’s your go-to outfit if you’re in a rush?

To be completely honest, if I am in a rush I will grab a pair of sweats and my nearest hoodie. Add a bun or a scarf and some lip gloss and I’m ready to go!

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

Serve looks and be yourself. Don’t let anyone’s opinion determine what you wear. Don’t follow the trend, be the trend! <3

Scroll through the Style Diary of Charleston based fashion-lover + YouTuber, Me’Kaila!

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.

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!
