Style Sense

. December 20, 2012.

 

How would you describe your personal style?

I think my personal style is sophisticated with an urban twist. I like mixing classic with contemporary things.

 

What's classic versus trendy to you?

I love chiffon, I love pearls, I love all those traditional things. But to make it more contemporary I might add combat boots to what I'm wearing.

 

What's a style pet peeve to you?

Camo. I really don't like camouflage. I will never wear it — I don't understand why it keeps coming back.

 

How do you decide what to wear in the morning?

I definitely dress according to my mood. Some days it's pale pinks, other days I dress like a cyber goth. I honestly feel like the less you have, the more creative you become in putting outfits together. I'm a college student, so I have to be careful how I spend money on clothes. There's nothing wrong with recycling clothes — it's a skill everybody should master.

 

Do you plan on breaking the mold and being a trendy engineer?

I definitely want to be a stylish engineer. I feel like there's this idea that loving science and loving fashion are mutually exclusive. I've met a lot of people who are in engineering and love fashion.
