Let’s Talk Fashion

Who or what inspires your style? “I really enjoy Miranda Lambert. She is so fun and outgoing but super country at the same time. I feel like her fashion can be dressed up or down and that is what I am all about.”

Where do you like to shop? “Anywhere and everywhere. American Eagle is always a go-to. They have the best jeans and jean jackets, and their clothes just fit really nice[ly]. I love the clothing that they come out with every season. I also love shopping at T.J. Maxx. You can find great deals on cute stuff.”

How would you describe your sense of style? “Country for sure. I am all about it. I grew up in a smaller city and went to a country public school, so I think it is just in me to be a little more country.”

Why did you choose this particular outfit? “I chose this outfit because it is fun and cute but also matches my style and who I am. I want people to know me by my personality but also by my clothes. I want them to know I can dress up or down and look nice in both.”

What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “Love what you wear and if you don’t love it then get rid of it!”

What are your favorite trends right now? “Jean jackets probably. I am all about them and you can wear them in any season.”

Do you have any favorite fashion designers and if so who? “Good question! I really don’t get too much into higher brand fashion, but I do like to wear Coach sometimes for bags because they match a lot and if I am just chillin’ at home then Adidas for that.”

What do you do for fun? “I am all about watching Disney movies. I am obsessed with Moana. Also when I am not in class or working, I really enjoy going to the movies and getting food with friends.”

If you could raid anyone’s closet who would it be and why? “Miranda Lambert’s or Carrie Underwood[‘s]. I feel like they dress similar and their clothes are just so cute.”
