DLSU's BEST DRESSED: Sarah Policios

Sarah Policios | ID 109 | AB Organizational Communication

How do you describe your style?

"Anything goes but always put together and never too much."

What are your staple clothing items for school?

"My trusty cover-ups (denim jacket, black & white blazer, loose cardigan and leather jacket) which one hardly sees me without since I easily feel cold and classrooms in school aren't making it any easier for me; white top which I believe is an absolute necessity; black and brown leather backpacks since they're not only adorable but they also prevent my scoliosis from becoming worse than it already is; plain colored and black knee length dresses which are my besties especially when creative juices aren't flowing; button downs which I end up wearing whenever I wanna feel comfortable and look chic at the same time; short skirts and high waisted shorts which are easy to match with; colored and denim skinnies which I only tend to put on during long and busy days; black flats and loafers which I could pair with anything and everything; gold or silver accessories especially my gold watch which brings life to simple outfits."

What are your all time favorite trends?

"I'm caught in between boho meets grunge - think Coachella festival surrounded by all these long-legged beauties in leather jackets, printed maxis, cropped tops, floppy hats, kimonos, bandeaus, denim shorts & black combat boots - and minimalism - think Paris blown away by the chicness of a group of women right across the street in tailored blazers, clean button-downs, breton tops, sheer maxis, black and colored skinnies, lace shorts, pumps & loafers."

Who are your style icons?

"Kate Moss, Erin Wasson and Alexa Chung for getting away with just about anything; Olsen twins, Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage & Miroslava Duma for looking effortlessly chic at all times; Kate Bosworth for always looking so fresh and clean; Gillian Zinser of 90210 for being the perfect epitome of boho meets grunge style; Aimee Song of Song of Style for being so amazing at mixing & matching girly & edgy pieces; Diane Kruger and Olivia Palermo for looking so classy and polished; Rumi Neely of Fashion Toast for always looking smoking in her simple yet well put together ensembles; Vanessa of Haute Pursuit for being such a pro in mixing & matching trendy & basic pieces; Madonna for being the mother of 80's fashion (my fave fashion era!)."

Can you give some tips to your fellow Lasallians on how they can dress up for school without comprising both style & comfort?

"Dressing up is not just about looking good for others but most importantly, yourself. Be comfortable in your own skin, dress how you feel and let the real you shine! But do take note that it's a must that you know what looks good on you. Mix and match! Fashion is all about having fun so don't hold yourself back when you feel people might judge you. And always remember that it does not matter what you wear, but how you wear it. Own your look!"
