WEAR IS... FREJA SETTERGREN?

Okay. I'm not afraid to say it. Freja Settergren is the ultimate cool girl. Perhaps it's the mixture of her experiences in both Stockholm and Paris that have infused such a glorious sense of personal style into her. Or perhaps, she was born with it. Who's to say?

All we know for sure is that this girl is Spring personified. In a swirl of earthy greens, baby pinks and sunshine yellows, Freja is certainly making the world her runway. So keep reading for her thoughts on Scandi style, wardrobe staples and Dior.

Hi, Freja! Please introduce your wonderful self! 

Hi! My name is Freja and I'm a 21 year old Swede living in Paris. I grew up in Stockholm with my parents, two brothers and a sister. Paris always held a special place in my heart, I visited quite often since my dad worked in Paris sometimes. I decided I was gonna live here when I was 12 and so after high school I moved with my best friend and now we live happily ever after in the cutest studio in Montmartre.

1. How would you describe your style?

I'll borrow my friend Justine's words: "Un mix merveille between Scandi allure and Parisian chic." My style is pretty fluid, on one day I'll feel like wearing a cute dress and the next day I'll wear a hoodie and jeans. 

2. Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?

I get very inspired by cities and the people in it. Like when I'm in Stockholm I think my style gets less parisian, and the other way around. Otherwise girls that inspire me are Ella Karberg, Marie Jedig, Naomi Anwer, and Camille Charriere.

3. How did you discover your personal style or are you still discovering it?

I think I'm still discovering it, but I guess I know better now what clothes makes me feel and look good, like I have my stables (high waisted flare pants, t-shirts, polos, transparent shirts) and I won't go to far away from that although I have some pieces that sticks out more. I really like mixing sporty and cute. If I wear a hoodie I'll probably add some cute hair accessories or my mini pink bag. If I wear a skirt or a dress I absolutely won't wear heels, I would feel to girly. 

4. What's on your thrift list right now?

A fun pair of sunglasses, a Dior by Galliano T-shirt à la 2000's and maybe a jacket for spring.

5. Where would you go on your ultimate dream vacation?

To me, France and Italy has it all and you don't need to go to far for it. The food, the culture, the landscape and the people. 

6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: what's something you're really proud of right now?

Juggling a part time job, an internship, studies and a social life all at once. I do not recommend it to anyone though, your health takes the punch haha.

Wear is… Alissa Mezzetti

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 Alissa Mezzetti?

WEAR IS... ALISSA MEZZETTI?

If anyone can time travel, it's definitely Alissa Mezzetti. Between her shaggy bangs and vintage wardrobe, she wears the 70s so well you'd almost believe her if she told you she somehow got lost in the time-space continuum. While she draws inspiration from some of the great rock n' roll artists of the past, she often ends up looking even cooler than them.

So if you love vintage style, prepare yourself for a world of inspiration today. Keep reading for her thoughts on Diane Keaton, men's fashion and the Northern Lights.

1. How would you describe your style?

My style is definitely inspired by the 70s. Sometimes I’m more bohemian but I often tap into my love of 70s rock n' roll and play off of that.

2. Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?

The 70s is my biggest inspiration. I love looking at old photos of Diane Keaton from that time period. She was so cool and effortless and natural. I love how women owned their natural beauty back then. 

I’ve been insanely inspired by menswear lately. Specifically everything Gucci puts on Harry Styles. It’s honestly all so dope and reminiscent of how men dressed in the 79s. I need more men’s pieces in my life. 

I watch a lot of old film and get inspiration from that as well.

3. How did you discover your personal style or are you still discovering it?

I've been obsessed with the 70s since I was a kid. My mother once called me her little flower child. I like experimenting with different looks and my style is constantly evolving. I moved to LA for a few years from Boston and that definitely helped open me up to trying new things and coming into my own. I feel more confident in my looks than ever but I’ll never stop evolving my style! 

4. What's on your thrift list right now?

I need more trousers in my life! Have been trying stuff on at various vintage stores around Brooklyn but haven’t found anything I’m completely in love with yet.

5. Where would you go on your ultimate dream vacation?

Ultimate dream vacation? My biggest dream is to see the northern lights! Hopefully I can save some money and do that this year! I want to start in Iceland and travel down to Norway then finish in Copenhagen! 

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 proud of so many things. I just moved back east from LA on a whim. I honestly hated LA. I got laid off from my job and booked a one way ticket to NYC. Came here with no job or apartment but I'm making it work! I’m a bit of a nomad and am proud I’m able to uproot my life and thrive even though it’s terrifying.

Where else can we find you, Alissa?

I don’t have a website (yet!) so you’ll only find me on instagram (@alissamezzetti). I joined TikTok for a second but deleted it, maybe I’ll bring it back. Who knows!

Wear is… Nikita Jackson

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: 

Patterned tights

Anything with an oversized collar 

Green dresses 

green peter pan collar outfit
green gunne sax dress outfit

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!

Wear is… Caroline Holley?

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 Caroline Holley?

WEAR IS... CAROLINE HOLLEY?

From the wonderful land of Portland comes Caroline Holley, a girl with eclectic style and perhaps some of the best hair... ever? Her wardrobe alone is a work of art featuring a gorgeous color palette of reds, greens, blues and oranges. Still, the way she chooses to wear these pieces is the most inspiring part.

Whether she's wearing something simplistic or something much more unexpected, there is an undeniable level of chic that Caroline exudes. Her interview today will no doubt give you some serious style inspo so keep reading for her thoughts on reinventing herself, non-conformity and West World.

Hi, Caroline! Please introduce your wonderful self?

Hi I’m Caroline! I’m 23 years old and live in Portland, Oregon. I currently work at 2 different clothing stores based in Portland, and am a social media manager for the sweetest little ice cream shop. 

1. How would you describe your style? 

This is a hard one to answer, because I don’t think I have one single vibe or style when it comes to my clothing. I am constantly changing, evolving, creating and recreating my style. My clothing is usually a reflection of how I am feeling that day. Some days that might mean keeping it simple with my favorite jeans and a tee, and other days that might mean stepping out in snake print pants, square toe boots, and a puffer. Ultimately, I love to mix different styles together and pair pieces that are unexpected. 

2. Where are your favorite places to shop and why?

I get the majority of my clothing from thrift stores. Portland is home to a ton of amazing vintage clothing stores, which makes avoiding fast fashion pretty easy. I absolutely love going thrifting, and hunting for unique pieces that I am able to give new life to. I am definitely still guilty of buying from places like Asos, but I do my best to do most my shopping at local stores and thrift shops. 

3. How did you discover your personal style or are you still discovering it? 

I think I have a pretty good idea of what my personal style is, but I also don’t ever want to confine myself. My personal style is constantly changing, which is what I find so fun about fashion. 

4. Do you have any current favorites? (podcasts, books, songs, etc?) 

I have been watching a ton of shows recently like West World, Power, and Shameless. I also love documentaries and shows/movies based on true stories. If you haven’t watched “When They See Us,” go watch it!

5. Aside from style, what other hobbies or interests do you have? 

When I’m not working, I spend most of my time with my dog. He helps me stay active and enjoy the outdoors even during Portland’s dark and rainy winters. There are tons of amazing parks and hiking trails near by.

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 really proud of how much I have grown in the last year. I’m a pretty shy person, but I have continuously put myself out there and pursued things even if they seem terrifying in the moment. I finally feel like I am finding my place and advancing my career slowly but surely.

Wear is… Lizzi Lithiluxa?

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 Lizzi Lithiluxa?

WEAR IS... LIZZI LITHILUXA?

Entering the colorful world of Lizzi Lithiluxa is like entering a visual candy shop. Lizzi is a girl who can pull off any color she wants and does, in fact, judging by her effortlessly chic wardrobe.

Whether she's making up her own definitions of what style can be or proudly sharing her unique thrifted treasures, the fact is, Lizzi isn't afraid to have fun while getting dressed! Read on for her thoughts about wedding dresses, breaking the rules and "Big Parisian Energy."

Hi, Lizzi! Please introduce your wonderful self!

Hi y’all! My name is Lizzi Lithiluxa and I’m originally from Columbus, OH but I am now located in sunny Los Angeles where I work in Product Development for a denim company. 

1. What does personal style mean to you? 

Personal style is such a funny concept to me. Personal style to me is more of an attitude than anything else. I feel like my style ranges from “Big Parisian Energy” to “Tiny Hat Skate Life” It’s all about the attitude - if you feel and act confident, people will see that. With the right attitude, you can wear anything. 

2. Is there anything in your wardrobe that has special memories?

For my wedding I got this beautiful Reformation slip dress that I found on Poshmark. It’s so simple and classic, I’m planning on getting it hemmed to a midi length so I can wear it more often! 

3. How did you discover your style? 

I think I really discovered my style when I started thrifting. I love a day where I spend hours thrifting, picking items - then finding a place for them in my wardrobe. I love getting creative with my style, changing it up daily, and my favorite catch phrase is “Thanks, it’s thrifted!”

4. What’s one tip you could share for finding your personal style?

I feel like I’m constantly rediscovering my style through thrifting, through music, and through other badass babes on the Internet. To anyone in a style rut or looking to discover their style, don’t be afraid to try new styles, new fits, new prints. I know there are these “style rules” that some body types can wear this or that, just wear what you want. You never know what is going work for you, and you never know what you could end up liking!

5. Is there anything on your thrift list right now? 

I’m currently looking for a plaid car coat. I feel like it’s a classic piece that I’ve been needing for a while. I’m holding out for the ~ one ~ because I know it’s something that I’ll be keeping in my closet for a while. 

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 really proud of myself for moving out of my home town and the big city that is Los Angeles. I’ve actually never lived outside of Ohio and I’d only ever visited California one time. But I had a great support system, and I was ready to take the big leap. It’s been almost 2 years, and when I take a step back, I know that a 15 year old me could never believe the silly life I’ve made for myself.
