Baddie Winkle, Social Media Superstar
Tell us about this look.
The flame-print jumpsuit is from DEVOWEVO, the green jacket is by Marina Fini, and the rainbow earrings are from Bombshell. The Baddie necklace was handmade by a fan and the boots are from TUK. I love the fiery look and I love putting a splash of green in there.
When did you become interested in fashion?
I’ve always been interested in fashion. I just started caring less what people thought about me. So I’m wearing the clothes I want to wear now and I don’t care what other people’s opinions are. I do me and you do you.
What era of clothing did you like the best and what do you think was the worst? Is there a particular style that you want to come back?
Like most people, the ’70s and ’90s are my favorite. My least favorites were the ’40s and ’50s. Everything comes back if you just wait long enough, but I never want to see bell bottoms again.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is funky and groovy and I think I’m fabulous.
Do you have a favorite piece of clothing?
I would say my Ragged Priest jeans with the chain in the front.
What tips do you have for building an original wardrobe?
Start with small companies that make clothes you like and try new things. Have confidence in anything that you wear or do in life.
What would you say to women who feel like they are too old to wear something?
I say wear what you want and what you feel comfortable in. Nothing should hold you back.
