Q: How would you describe your style/ if you had to describe your style in a sentence what would it be?

A: I would describe my style as something that is more like comfortable chic, with some hipster 80s influences that I picked up from when I lived in Portland, OR. I really like the sharp minimalist looks that complement my body type and toss on a cozy jacket with it, just because I’m a Californian so a gust of wind can make me freeze.

Q: What influences your style/Is there any style icon who you try to emulate?

A: Style icon wise, I’d probably say I relate more to Billie Eilish just because I prefer more relaxed looks that are a little bit more quirky. I’ve been trying to accessorize more with headbands, scarves, bold earrings, and oversized jackets.

Q: How do you show your style within your club?

A: As far as showing my style in my club, my wardrobe already relies a lot on navy, black, and white colors so it works out perfectly with being in Blue & Gray! I try to follow the blue and gray kind of color palette if I know I’m going to give a tour. To be fair, I don’t think it would deviate from what I usually wear in the first place anyway.

Q:What is your favorite item of clothing in your closet?

A: My favorite item in my closet is probably my oversized faux fur jacket. It’s kind of a problem- I’ve been tagged so many memes about this jacket. I can’t help it, it’s so fuzzy and comfortable and keeps me warm in any of my outfits.

Q: How does your style showcase your personality?

A: I’d say my style showcases my personality since I prefer being approachable above all else. I work as a barista part time and the mix of indie influences along with the coziness that comes with working in a coffee shop kind of encapsulate how I dress. More than anything. I just like being comfortable with myself in what I wear.

Q: What influences your style/Is there any style icon who you try to emulate?

A: My style is influenced by my old Uncle Jing, styles from the last thirty years, and anime. I have tried to emulate my Uncle Jing, LL Cool J, Waluigi, Geordi LaForge, and Piccolo, to name a few people.

Q: How do you show your style within your club?

A: I show my style by wearing some of my freshest ‘fits when I go on tours or walk around campus. I also have this mug that I like to eat cereal out of that says Blue and Gray on it.

Q:What is your favorite item of clothing in your closet?

A: One of my favorite items right now is this cool pair of glasses that I got from sunglassLA that look like the one that Levar Burton wears in Star Trek.

Q: How does your style showcase your personality?

A: My styles showcases my personality because I wear a mix of things I like. I like the weird meme wrapping around Waluigi and I mess with Piccolo because he has always been a positive father figure in the black community, so I rock their outfits. I see something and I try to rock it in my own way. Some musicians have an iconic look or style and sometimes I try it and mix it up in my own way like LL Cool J and his track suits. If I see it and I like, I mix it and try it.
