Does your style differ from your nine-to-five to your weekend, and if so, how?
Yes, definitely! When I dress for work, I go for more classic, conservative looks. Unfortunately, there isn’t much experimentation. However, the weekend is where I get to express myself. My personal style has evolved to this combination of classic, menswear-inspired, streetwear-style pieces. For example, I love pairing utility pants, a very streetwear-inspired piece, with a classic, double-breasted overcoat. Or I love rocking a beanie with a buffalo plaid shirt and some Doc Martens, which I can’t quite get away with at work.
Who are your style influences and what qualities about them impact you?
As to no surprise, a lot of my influence comes from Instagram. In particular, Amanda Arends (@amanda.arends) is someone that I constantly find myself emulating. I would love to raid her closet! Since I like to combine classic and streetwear elements, she’s a great individual to turn to for inspiration. Plus, she’s not afraid to have fun and rock some plaid suspenders. My goal in life is to have as awesome a wardrobe as Amanda.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Oh, man! This is tough. I think I would go with a chambray shirt. Olive utility pants — olive is one of my favorite colors. My Doc Martens, which have this awesome brogue detail to them. So they look grunge, but also classic. And I’d tie it all together with one of my favorite pieces in my closet: my double-breasted camel coat.
Who is your photographer and what camera does he/she use?
While I do rope any one of my friends into taking my photo, my main photographer is my sister, Danielle (@dani_wanders). When it’s spur of the moment, she just uses my iPhone. And for the more thought-out photos, she shoots with a Nikon DSLR.
