How do you describe your style?
"A little edgy, a little boho, a little glam, basically a little bit of everything."
What are your staple clothing items for school?
"I have this intense affection for any clothing item that is black. First off would be my black satchel. It's incredible how easily I can pair it with any top, any shoe or any skirt. Second would be my favourite LBD (little black dress). Not only is it a must for women but it's also something very versatile that you can wear at any place or any occasion. You can just simply wear it with a kimono or a slender sweater, subtle accessories and you're good to go to school or even a dinner date. Last and definitely not the least would be my trusty black combat boots that often brings out the androgynous side of me."
What are your all time favorite trends?
"I can and will probably never get enough of maxi skirts, bodycon dresses, color blocking, combat boots and THE leopard prints that we're oh-so fond off."
Who are your style icons?
"The goddess of minimalism and grunge: KATE LANPHEAR. It astonishes me how she can be androgynous and glamorous at the same time. No one does it better than her. I also look up to Carine Roitfeld, Rachel Zoe, Alexa Chung, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Kate Moss and Rumi Neely."
Can you give some tips to your fellow Lasallians on how they can dress up for school without compromising both style & comfort?
"Stock up your closet on basics! It's a necessity because you can never go wrong with it. At the same time, just be yourself and don't be afraid to take risks. Fashion doesn't have rules. Translate your personality into your own style and with confidence, you'll be the talk of the town!"
