She currently works at a tech startup, but she also consults for fashion startups and emerging local fashion designers.
We took account of Bana Abujaber's Instagram profile, and we could tell that it's her digital fashion diary, reflecting her very cool style. From her summer shopping wishlist, to the secret to take the perfect selfie, read along to find out the secrets of street style star, Bana Abujaber.
What is your signature style, and how did you develop it?
My signature style is definitely mixing and matching high and low fashion. I guess I developed it at a young age when I didn’t own any designer clothing and accessories,so I’d sneak into my mother's closet, steal one of her handbags, and style my outfit around it!
What does your summer shopping wishlist include?
Serpenti Forever hobo bag from Bulgari.
A styling tip you live by...
Fashion has no rules; if it looks good,rock it!
How to take the perfect selfie?
Use a selfie lens.
What are your favorite Instagram accounts to follow?
- Hannah Bronfman – this girl is everything: DJ, model, entrepreneur and a fitness freak! She inspires me so much.
- Hailey Baldwin – I think I have a crush on her!
Name three pieces that every woman should have in her closet.

If you could raid anyone's closet, it would be...
Danielle Bernstein from WeWoreWhat.
A fashion trend you would never try...
If we could peek inside your handbag, what would we find?
Charger, earphones, mini hair brush, perfume, old receipts, lip balm, workout gloves, sunglasses, and lipstick.
How can you survive a bad hair day?
The half up bun hair style. A bad hair day to me, is when the front streaks go flat. Pulling them back into a messy bun does the trick! The best part is that this hair style is now trending!
