Hello lovelies! If you’re not familiar with my Style series, it’s when different people, each with their individual style are featured on this blog every month. It gives a really unique perspective on how each person views and showcases their style. For this month’s style series we have one a good friend of mine whom I met this year and whose style I’ve always been
lowkey jealous of (I know she’ll probably read this but whatever). Her style can be described as loose, light and minimalistic. Don’t let the smile fool you, the sun was literally melting our faces when we took these.
Name: Tamara Alissa
Program and year of study: Kinesiology (First Year)
Where do you get your inspiration from? No one specific, but I like to feel fluid in the places I hang around the most like Kensington market. There’s this communal dress code around there that I unknowingly fall into which I’m totally cool with because it compliments my daily life and it’s comfortable and cheap
Favourite Clothing Store? Black market or H&M. I generally like the rustic feel so I love second hand clothes.
Any Fashion pet peeves? Overly tight clothing!! It’s hard to rock an outfit that’s got a tight top and a tight bottom, in my opinion it’s nice to contrast tops or bottoms with something free and loose. But if you can rock leather leggings and a tight tank top then that’s awesome too!
Any advice for the readers? Take the time to wear things that tell a story, that reflect what you would wear during your hobbies. For example when I’m painting I always wear loose jeans. When I’m wearing them outside, I feel like I’m myself/at home and it’s mentally comforting if that makes sense.
