Minimalists unite.

Sometimes a jeans + white tee combo is all you need, and today's fashionista proves it. Amy is inspired by Youtubers, street fashion, and minimalism, and it's easy to see these influences in her style. Although the elements of her look are simple, her ensemble is far from basic.

Let's Talk Fashion

Who or what inspires your style? “I watch a lot of YouTube videos that tend to target fashion and clothes and I find ‘How to Style’ videos very informative and helpful. Also, my friends inspire me with outfit ideas since we have similar taste[s].”

How would you describe your sense of style? “It would be a mixture of street style and minimalistic [style].”

When did you start getting into fashion? “After graduating high school I found myself looking at fashion articles and discussing high-end fashion with a good friend of mine.”

What are your favorite trends right now? “A simple and clean look is my favorite at the moment! Every year it does change quite a bit, so I do go through a dramatic phase where I always have to buy the latest clothes.”

If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? “Probably TheLineUp on YouTube. Their sense of style fits with what I would like to wear on a daily basis and also they shop at affordable places.”

Why did you choose this particular outfit? “I just received this trench coat as a gift and I was super excited to flaunt it and I haven’t worn the Dial-Up t-shirt in awhile so I thought better to wear it now before I forget about it in the back of my closet.”

Where do you like to shop? Zara, Aritzia, Oak and Fort, Value Village, Gap, and sometimes H&M, and Topshop.”

What do you do for fun – do you have any unique hobbies or interests? “I like to grab lunch or dinner with my friends in my spare time or I just chill at home with my sister. I don’t have any specific hobbies but I am interested in learning on how to improve at Photoshop, Illustrator, and [other] designing programs.”

What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? "Always bring extra socks and wear whatever you like. Nobody really cares anyways."

Elements of Amy's Outfit

1. White Tee

At first, I didn’t think much of Amy’s shirt - I assumed it was just a plain white tee. When she took off her jacket, however, I saw the logo on the back - it was made by local Calgary fashion designers who have branded themselves DIAL_UP. This shirt is minimal and streetwear-inspired, a perfect match for Amy's aesthetic. 

2. Black Trench

Fall in Calgary is essentially winter, minus the snow. Translation: You need a jacket here. All over campus, I have seen people wearing trench coats, both heavy duty and lightweight. Amy's black trench is on the lighter side, perfect for layering.

3. White Kicks

No matter where you look, you'll probably spot someone on campus sporting Adidas. Amy wears her well-loved sneaks with her jeans cuffed to show them off. 

Now we want to know what you think!
