Four Seasons, One Fashion World

Different realms of fashion inspire different kinds of people. For Humber College student Aziza Brown, her inspiration comes from a diverse world of fashion in Toronto, Ontario in Canada. “Living in Toronto, all fashion and all styles are around me, especially on Queen Street, downtown Toronto. I see punk rockers’ style in their all black gothic wardrobe, the hipsters with their plaid and vans shoes, the Harajuku barbies, the experimenters with their mix-and-match colors, the trend followers, and everyone else you can think of,” Brown mentioned. But in the midst of all these styles, I feel right at home. According to Brown, the fashionable and the unique are only expressing their character through their wardrobe, and style, and so is she. Therefore, all styles must be respected, no matter how bizarre they may be. This twenty-year-old speaks further to YHM about her other fashion inspirations. YHM: What styles attract/inspire you the most? AZ: The styles that attract and inspire me the most are the “all black” fashion, hipsters/retro style and the 80s/90s are my biggest …

Positivity in any Wardrobe for any Season

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 …

Workplace Flair

When working in an office, many people believe that they have to stick to the same drab two-piece suits that have been worn by professionals for years. Black, grey, and navy are staple colors within a professional setting that people feel most comfortable in. Some may feel stifled by this status quo, but more and more people are finding ways to step out of the traditional and throw some sass into their wardrobe. YHM asks recent graduate, Alexis Kianna, how she shows her personality in her wardrobe at work. “I believe that you can remain professional while still showing who you are through your work wardrobe. I like to use accessories and color to make a plain black or grey suit come to life. Pops of red from your shirt, a printed heel, or a colorful belt, are simple pieces that can truly go a long way. The most important thing about picking out an outfit is making sure that you feel comfortable and love the way you look.” By J’nel Billups
