Fall is right around the corner. So while the east coast may be saying goodbye to the warm, sunny weather and welcoming the colder, autumn air, twenty-year-old Genevieve Nguyen living in Southern California is living the summer life all year round!
YHM: We are transitioning from summer to fall, how does that affect your wardrobe?
Genevieve Nguyen (GN): Since I live in SoCal, it’s never really too hot or too cold.
I own a lot of shorts! I wear them all year round!
For the first day of fall, I would wear a neutral color parka jacket over a plain tank or tee, a printed circle scarf, a pair of denim shorts, sheer leggings under, with a cute pair of strapped heels or ankle booties.
YHM: What styles attract and inspire you the most?
GN: I really love the simple, classic looks. I’m always attracted to the Brandy Melville-esque styles.
I’m interested in modern chic with a little edge.
According to Nguyen, she was introduced to the world of fashion when being skinny and showing skin were the only acceptable looks for fashion.
Now, I feel like fashion comes in all shapes and sizes. It’s more body positive now.
YHM: What is your ideal outfit that gives you a positive vibe?
GN: Floral-print clothing helps give me a positive energy throughout the day! Floral just brings out that laid-back vibe and comfort. When I dress comfortable, I feel good all day long!
Whether it’s the west coast or the east coast, summer weather all year round or not, everyone should feel positive in any kind of wardrobe!
