Gabby is a senior at Rollins College and is spending the semester abroad in her favorite city: London.
Living in Camden Town, a neighborhood with a thriving punk scene, Gabby gains inspiration from the vibes around her. I absolutely love Gabby’s outfit: Her mixing and matching of high-end accessories and grungy pieces is a combination to die for.

Let's Talk Fashion
Who or what inspires your style? “I get inspired by street style combined with chic high street fashion. I enjoy contrasting the two to create grungy-chic [looks].”
How would you describe your sense of style? “Grunge mixed with Malibu Barbie.”
Why did you choose this particular outfit? “I chose this outfit to really amplify the contrast between luxury brands and street style. I love how edgy my jeans make me look, along with one of my favorite icon[s], Barbie. I also love wearing my Cartier Love jewelry because it's so simple [but] chic. Along with my Balenciaga bag, I knew it would create the perfect combo of street vs. runway.”
What fashion advice would you give to other students looking to improve their style? “Do not be afraid to push the boundaries. Nothing was ever in style until someone wore it first. Someone has to start the trend. Even if you think you can't pull something off, just go with it, because odds are you can.”
What are your favorite trends right now? “Calvin underwear showing above jeans. I have always loved snakeskin print or python print. Pushing the boundaries with swear [word]s printed on shirts has also been something I've gotten into from living in Camden Town. Not to mention my white Adidas; I love how sneakers are so in style in London!”
What do you do for fun? Do you have any unique hobbies or interests? “I love to travel. I have lived all over the world and do not intend to stop exploring. The best thing you can collect in life [is a set of] memories from new and exciting places, especially ones that push your boundaries.”
If you could raid anyone’s closet, who would it be and why? “Wow. Great question. Probably one of the Kardashians just because of the sheer amount of stuff they own. I also love Bella Hadid's style and would steal anything from her closet.”
Elements of Gabby's Outfit
1. Barbie Top
With so many unique and funky shops to browse through in Camden Town, UK, Gabby rocks this one of a kind tie-dye Barbie shirt. The grungy top paired with her thin velvet choker and oversized vintage denim jacket is seriously the coolest.
2. Boyfriend Jeans and Calvin’s
Personally, I am a huge fan of the layered denim trend when it is done right, and Gabby most definitely nailed the look. Her low rise boyfriend jeans with her Calvin Klein underwear scream street style queen.
