The fashion Q&A
with SEERLEE ARCHER (@seerleearcher)
Q: WHEN DO YOU FEEL YOU'RE MOST CONFIDENT?
A: I feel most confident when I've taken the time to value myself and attend to my own needs. Taking care of my physical body and mind allows me to feel my best. Safe spaces + loving friends and family help too!
Q: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN THREE WORDS?
A: Selective, minimal, chic
Q: ARE YOU BIG INTO SHOPPING BRAND NAMES OR JUST SHOPPING BY TASTE?
A: I like what I like. There are a few brands that I rock with, but I'll never confine my options based on brand.
Q: HIGH WAISTED JEANS OR LOW RIDERS?
A: High-waisted. I don't like my panties showing haha!
Q: WHO IS YOUR PERSONAL STYLE ICON? AND WHY?
A: My grandparents. It's not to say that I aspire to dress like them. But I value the effort they take to be both selective and fashionable. They don't leave the house without looking their best.
Q: DO YOU THINK THE CLOTHES SHOULD WEAR THE WOMAN OR THE WOMAN SHOULD WEAR THE CLOTHES?
A: Definitely the latter. A woman will make a garment come to life.
Q: WHAT SONG WOULD DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE AESTHETIC THE BEST?
A: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill - Lauryn Hill
Q: IS THERE A SECRET TO FASHION? IS SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK IT IS?
A: If we're talking about fashion in a general sense, as in the way one dresses, I would say - yes. Fashion is a form of self-expression, an art. Taking the time to listen to your own voice and experiment will allow you to dress better.
Q: WHAT IS THE BEST FASHION TIP SOMEONE HAS EVER GIVEN YOU?
A: Take your time in the fitting room.
