ALI, BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ACCOUNTANCY
Currently addicted to: Anything panda
Listens to a lot of: Jazz, Ray LaMontagne, Coldplay, Jhené Aiko, Kali Uchis
Style principle: Fashion is a lot of fun so don't waste your time wearing dull outfits. What you wear speaks about you – it is a window to who you are. Express your individuality through your clothes, designer or not.
Style history: My addiction and love for fashion started when Gossip Girl aired on television. Blair and Serena had the ultimate wardrobe #goals ever! I would always copy their "Upper East Side" outfits as a young girl until I developed my own personal style. Queen B gave me the confidence boost I needed in expressing myself, which is through fashion.
Favorite style item: I absolutely adore any statement pieces, from shades to shoes. I get a statement piece and solely base my whole outfit on it.
Style icon: Kendall Jenner
STYLE TIP FOR THE WEEK
We can all agree that mixing prints and textures is a daunting job. Mixing and matching require skills like a pro but it isn’t that complicated.
You just have to choose a print and mix it between tailored, flowy, or other textured pieces. If you want to mix two prints together, choose one dominant print and one that would complement it. In today’s look, two prints of different scales were chosen – the cardigan with bigger and bolder prints and the top with a slightly similar, subdued pattern. Adding an accessory which complements the look is a chic way of giving your outfit more character. If you are hesitant about trying bold and statement prints, you can always go with polka dots and stripes.
