1. Describe your personal style.
My own personal style has switched up over the years. I always liked business attire as a kid because I grew up in the church with my grandparents. During my early teenage years when I started to shop for myself, I was into regular urban wear and would dress up often. I always loved suits, I got that from seeing my grandfather dress up every Sunday for church. As time went on and I began to get more involved with community and leadership activities, it required me to dress up more often. I love cardigans, nice slip on shoes, bow ties and blazers. My personal style is ever-changing because I feel you can do so much with dress clothes compared to urban wear.
2. What or who inspires your wardrobe selections?
What inspires my wardrobe selection is to wear something that stands out but not too much. This is why I look for unique bow ties or neckties that will compliment my outfit. As far as who inspires my wardrobe I would say T.I. Dwayne Wade, Nas and Carmelo Anthony.
3. What are your favorite stores to shop?
K&G, H&M, Cole Haan, Brooks Brothers, Bannana Republic, Zara, Andrews Tie shop, Bachrach and my new favorite: The THRIFT STORE. A lot of people don’t know the thrift store has great clothes.
4. Do you wear cologne? What’s your favorite?
Yes, I love to wear cologne. My favorite scents are Night By: Zara, Hugo Boss, Versace Sean Jean, and I AM King.
5. What is your favorite article of clothing?
A nice button up shirt.
