The most obvious form of self-expression.
What is your signature style, and how did you develop it?
I would say minimal chic. My comfort always comes first, which is why I don’t like over-accessorizing - a fashion faux pas many are falling under these days. I prefer to make a statement with how I wear the outfit itself, instead of wearing flashy accessories and colors. For this reason, I focus on buying clothes with geometric cuts or pieces that are created in an unconventional way. I like to style my simple pieces in a creative way that is reflective of my personality, rather than wear something flashy to grab attention. Simplicity is beautiful, and what makes a style appealing is the person wearing it.
What does your summer shopping wishlist include?
Long sheer skirts, anything yellow, asymmetrical dresses, mono colored ensembles – preferably red or green, Aquazzura heels, colorful flared mini skirts, play-suits and over-sized mini dresses.
