GirlCove: What does personal style mean to you?
Personal style is important to me because it gives me an opportunity to present myself to the world the way that I want to be seen. As a minority, I am constantly burdened with the feeling that the way that I look sets the tone for how I will be assessed in terms of ability; my style has definitely given me a chance to take charge of that narrative.
GirlCove: How would you describe your personal style and how has it developed over the years?
My personal style is definitely a mix of classic “feminine” looks mixed with rock and menswear influences. I love shirts with clean lines, hats, pantyhose, dresses, skirts, and pumps; but I’ll still try and incorporate some fishnets, a leather jacket, or maybe swap the heels out for oxfords and men’s dress socks to make an outfit less one-dimensional.
