Style Profile: Meet Bria
As fashion major, I always get asked to describe my style, but I never know what to say. I
am tired of not knowing the answer so I decided to find the answer.
Style is something that you own and part of who you are. When I looked at my (very small) closet I noticed a few things. Patterns are not for me…I really like solid colors. I also noticed that denim is a staple product for me. My go-to pants are jeans and I love that denim jackets are coming back in style. I think a denim jacket can add a lot of uniqueness to an outfit. The last thing that I noticed is that socks are a necessity for me in the fall and winter. I can mainly be seen in white crew socks because I have what seems like a million from my cheer days!
When I pick out an outfit in the morning I like to keep it simple but then add something to make it pop. I love playing around with jackets, scarfs, shoes, socks, and jewelry. These accessories can make jeans and a sweater look like it was styled by a pro.
The outfit that I picked to show off my style is a jean jacket, sweater, leggings, socks, and boots. I picked the jean jacket because of the embroidered detail. I picked the sweater because it matched the flower on the jacket and it is also a staple item in my closet. I threw on a pair of leggings because I like being comfortable, especially since I am wearing heeled boots. I added the tied choker at the last minute because the outfit seemed like it was missing something but I did not know what until my friend suggested some to wear it. I love this outfit because it is very versatile, it can be worn to class or in the city!
I braided my hair for this look because I am known for my braids. I do not have the best natural hair and I do not like using heat everyday so I end up braiding my hair. I love how braids can be worn all year long and also look great with short and long hair. Braids are a big part of my style because they are easy to do and do not take much time or effort.
I am extremely happy that I have now found my style. I hope to continue to define and strengthen my style as I start my journey as an Ambassador for Urban Exchange.
