Let’s Talk Fashion
Who or what inspires your style? “I definitely have to say street style. I’m always inspired by others and their take on various trends at the moment. I also like looking at various bloggers and stylists.”
Where do you like to shop? “The question is where don’t I shop. I’m that person that will go into some random store and find something that I end up liking. I absolutely love thrifting and my go-to [non-thrift] stores are ASOS, Zara, and Urban Outfitters[‘s] sale section.”
How would you describe your sense of style? “That’s something I’ve been asked before and I don’t really know the answer to. I feel like my style is always changing. Sometimes I can be edgy, other times I’m just simple and classic. I feel like I have a classic style but with a twist.”
Why did you choose this particular outfit? “This outfit contains my fave pieces and it’s super comfy. It contains my favorite boots and my thrifted Levi’s mom jeans that I DIY-ed. The best part is that I get to top it with an oversized knit turtleneck.”
What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “[I would say] to just be you! If you go shopping with a friend and they don’t like something you like, who cares? If you like it, that’s all that matters! I run into that a lot and I just had to tell myself that it’s okay. Everyone is different and have such different styles and that’s what makes us unique.”
What are your favorite trends right now? “I love boots, so all the boots this season are everything! I live for the black patent leather boots and the velvet ones. Also, [I’m] obsessed with the backpack trend right now – [I] love it.”
What do you do for fun – do you have any unique hobbies or interests? “I love going to shows, thrifting, reading, and brunching. [I] just love hanging with friends.”
If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? “I would probably raid Kendall Jenner’s. Her style is so relaxed but chic and I love it. Also because her boots are amazing and designers just give them out to her like candy.”
Elements of Ericah’s Outfit
1. Turtleneck + Mom Jeans
