Hi! Welcome back to Wear is She Wednesdays, a series that highlights one special girl each week to let her shine! Every Wednesday, we feature a different “she,” and get the scoop on her style, what makes her tick, and how the heck we can learn to be as awesome as she is. Today we’re asking the question everyone wants to know… Wear is Nikita Jackson?
WEAR IS... NIKITA JACKSON?
Between her glowing complexion and whimsical wardrobe, Nikita Jackson might just be an actual fairy. This British beauty blends together Parisian and Scandinavian influences to create a style all her own. Her closet is filled with earthy colors, quirky Peter Pan collars and flirty dresses, making her perhaps the chic-est Science teacher on the planet. Keep reading for her thoughts on patterned tights, seasonal dressing and Queen.
Hi, Nikita! Please introduce your wonderful self!
Hi, I’m Nikita and I’m a 23 year old science teacher with a love for sustainability. I’m from the North-West of England, near Manchester, and have lived in the surrounding areas my whole life. After college I had to choose between science and art for my career, so my Instagram let’s me stay creative!
1. How would you describe your style in 3 words?
I’d describe my style as seasonal. It’s ever changing and I definitely take my cues from the weather and my day to day life. I’d also say it’s quite playful and a mixture of Parisian (for autumn/winter) and Scandinavian (for spring/summer)!
2. Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?
I take a lot of inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest. I’ll scroll until I find something I like and then I’ll look for similar items on Depop and in charity shops. I haven’t bought an item of clothing new since July 1st 2019.
3. What does personal style mean to you?
Personal style is the ability to express yourself and feel comfortable and confident with your outfit. People make snapshot judgements on the way you look before they get to know you, so personal style is important to give off your own message!
4. What's on your thrift list right now?
My thrift list is currently:
Anything with an oversized collar
5. Who would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?
I think I’d want my fantasy dinner party to host Queen, Prince, Stevie Nicks, Zooey Deschanel, Dakota Fanning and my boyfriend. A mixed bunch but all very interesting!
6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: what's something you're really proud of right now?
I’m currently really proud of myself for falling back in love with hobbies. It seems so small, but just getting yourself out and doing something you enjoy makes you feel 1000% better. I’m currently loving pottery and want to start punch needling!
