Centereach HS FC leader shares her Top 10 Spotify Playlist and talks about her personal style.
I do the PR of my Fashion Club and I love it! Being part of a club that promotes individualism is amazing. I love giving praise to those who aren't afraid to be themselves. Helping others feel confident and supporting them in their journey of expressing themselves is truly a blessing.
I love fashion because there are no rules. I can be who I want and express myself. I have the freedom to be me. I can speak without having to open my mouth. Fashion is one of the greatest forms of expression. You can learn a lot about a person through their style—favorite color, band, time period, etc. Fashion allows people to really show off what they're all about. It's empowering and builds confidence. Without fashion the world would be characterless.
I live in New York, and inspiration is on every corner. Walking down the streets I'm exposed to so many different styles. I just enjoy letting my style evolve as a result of new experiences. I think that the world has so much to offer and I enjoy soaking up everything I'm exposed to.
I often times wear skirts and dresses because I love dressing a bit girly. I love using a wide range of colors in all my outfits because I think it helps set me apart from the crowd. I like being able to say, “Hey, I'm here!” without making a sound.
One of my favorite fashion designers is Hayden Williams. I love how innovative he is with his designs. He takes a concept and elevates it beautifully.
When it comes to shopping, I love Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. I also love thrift shops! I'm constantly finding clothes that I can upscale and breathe new life into.
Knit scarves are my favorite fall trend. They can be used to dress up any outfit, and come in so many wonderful fall colors.
