Whats Inspires your style?
My life experiences definitely play the biggest part in my style. I always went to schools where I wore the entire dress pants, button up shirt and tie ensemble. Through every step of my education, I also played one sport or another. I really feel as if that background laid the foundation for the clothes I wear today. I always find myself reaching for more formal attire that is clean cut, neutral and athletic in build. I definitely draw inspiration from designers such as Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy and Yohji Yamamoto. All in all, I just try to stay true to myself. There is no point in following trends. As the saying goes, to lead the orchestra, you must turn your back on your crowd.
I am really into overcoats. They add the final touch to an outfit I don't feel any other type of outerwear offers. I think they provide a certain depth to an outfit any fashion enthusiast desires.
What is your staple item in your wardrobe this time of the year?
The staple item in my wardrobe right now is definitely my tan I Love Ugly Smart Pants. The clean, tapered cut paired with the soft, neutral color make them a perfect fit for almost any outfit.
