Name: Kira S.
Hometown: Portland, Oregon
Kira styles a flowy top from Janelle James Boutique with some Topshop denim for a trendy look.
How would you describe your personal style? I would say my personal style is casual chic. I love classic looks and anything leather!
Kira has perfected the art of the “tuck-in,” a super trendy way to style blouses.
Do you have any personal style icons you look up to? I really love the style blog “We Wore What” by Danielle. I follow her Instagram and her snapchat where she posts different outfits each day. She has an incredible wardrobe! I also really love Pau Dictado who is a fashion blogger based in LA. She is a street style fast fashion girl. Totally different from Danielle’s high fashion. I love getting inspiration from both areas of fashion to create my own style!
Her boho-inspired choker is from Forever21.
What inspires your outfits each day? It usually depends on what I’m doing that day. I definitely feel better if I am wearing a put together outfit. I try to use my style as a way to project what I’m going to accomplish and how I want people to perceive me. So, if I have a test I will try to wear an outfit that makes me feel powerful and confident.
Her Michael Kors bag is a statement piece that pulls everything together.
If you could change the fashion industry in any way how would you do it? I wouldn’t change anything. I am really excited to hear about the changes in policies regarding models weight and health. I also love that Instagram has become a great platform for people to express their interest in fashion.
Kira’s sweet ankle strap heels are from ALDO.
Do you have a piece of clothing or accessory that you treasure or love the most? I am obsessed with shoes! Black booties are my favorite shoes to rock, I have about 10 different pairs for different occasions. I always feel more confident when I’m wearing a good pair of shoes.
