Tell us about this outfit.
The jacket, sweater, and boots are all from ASOS. My magenta fur cuffs on this jacket are also from ASOS and they’re actually removable, so I can pair them with any outfit—definitely one of my favorite accessories! The skirt is from J.Crew, and the fuzzy pink beret and yellow necktie are from Forever 21.
How would you describe your look?
Lately I’ve been wearing a lot of ’60s- and ’70s-inspired styles, but no matter what, my clothing is always colorful and full of pattern. My motto with my style always seems to be, the more glitter and rainbow, the better. And I can never have enough berets!
Who is your all-time favorite style icon?
This isn’t a specific person, but I get a lot of style inspiration from French New Wave films. I like to recreate the simplistic silhouettes, but put my own spin on them with crazy patterns and clashing colors.
Have you always had such a vibrant
sense of style?
When I was in high school I was really into bright colors and unique, kitsch objects, but once I moved to New York, I started wearing all black. It seems like that’s what happens to a lot of people when they move here . But I eventually found my way back into this colorful world and style again.
Would you say pink is your signature color?
Pink is definitely my signature color right now. I used to hate pink when I was younger, and I honestly don’t think I owned one piece of pink clothing, but as I grew older, I started to really love pink and it’s quickly become the color of the majority of my wardrobe. I’m always looking for special pieces and it just so happens that a lot of the really fun clothes I find are some shade of pink. –Kelly Walters
