How do you describe your personal style?

"I'd say my style is a mix of anything and everything that inspires me. But my greatest influence when it comes to dressing is vintage glamour. I love the 70s, especially."

What are your staple clothing items for school?

"Jeans, because you'd never go wrong with them. A black tee, because you can dress them up or down. And flats because I like being comfortable in school."

What are your all-time favorite trends?

"Vintage glamour. It's classic, it's timeless. Impossible to commit a fashion faux pas. O
versized sweaters, combat boots and palazzo pants are some of the more on-trend items I'm opting to have now."

Who are your style icons?

"Kate Moss forever and ever. But I also love Rumi Neely and Blake Lively." 

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

"It's all about balance- mix and match statement pieces with basics. But at the end of the day, I'd say wear what you want and never second-guess yourself. If you like what you're wearing, it'll translate. Comfort comes hand in hand with confidence."

How do you describe your style?

     "To tell you the truth, I really don’t know my style. When people ask me what my style is, I can’t seem to pinpoint the specific style that I have but usually when I dress up, it depends on my mood, what I feel like wearing or what I want to wear specifically. Though, I do love dressing up either a vintage classy way or a comfy chill way, something that’s effortless. I guess that’s a way of describing my style. I always find myself combining the different trends with the classics. I love doing that because it gives me the chance to experiment on styling. I think the perfect way to summarize everything I said would be, versatile styling, that's my style." 

What are your staple clothing items for school?

     "It would be cropped tops, my black skinnies and bandage skirt, my brown leather knapsack, and either sandals, black flats or boots."

What are your all time favorite trends?
     "Oh, I have so many trends that I really love so I’ll just mention some! For clothes, I love the mini bustiers/corsets, high waist shorts and bandage skirts trend; while for shoes, I love the wedges, Lita boots & Dr. Martens trend."

Who are your style icons?

     "I have some classic style icons that I really love and also some modern ones. The classic style icons would be Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, and how can you forget, Audrey Hepburn. Now for the modern ones, they would be the Olsens, Chloë Sevigny and my favorite, Kate Moss. Those seven style icons are just different from each other, unique in their own way but all their styles are just amazing."

Can you give some tips to your fellow Lasallians on how they can dress up for school without compromising both style and comfort?
     "The best tip I can give them would be just to dress up the way you want to dress up. I know it’s pretty cliché to say that but it’s true! You should find comfort in the clothes you wear, that’s the important thing about fashion. You dress up the way you are comfortable with. Now, when it comes to styling, all you have to do is just be updated and be aware of the different trends, even the old school trends; and from there, you can mix and match! That’s one way of styling yourself (well that’s what I do). Also, another tip would be dressing up according to the weather; that will help you be more comfortable with what you are wearing. It’s all about knowing what style you want, or an idea of the style you want and just playing or experimenting with it."

365 days and counting!

Today marks Fashion 4.0's first year of existence in the blogsphere! We would just like everyone to know that we are very thankful for your support for our humble blog. We promise from now on to provide you with more quality posts week in and week out. 

To celebrate our anniversary, we thought of giving all of our readers a chance to have their voices be heard as we name DLSU's most stylish students for the year 2010-2011. Hundreds of nominations were sent to us and because of the overwhelming response, we decided to add one more person to the initial list of ten. Shot by up-and-coming Lasallian fashion photographer Kyla Olives, we've came up with mini-editorial fashion shoots for the 11 most inspiring Lasallian style-philes whom we asked to prepare two sets of looks- dress-up & dress-down. We will reveal them one by one every other day starting tomorrow.

All hail Lasallian fashion!
