What are you wearing?
The entire outfit is from Chocolate in downtown Los Angeles. My favorite piece is the jacket, a sort of a cutout blazer top. It has no sleeves but still gives it that look, and sits steady on my shoulders.

Describe your style:
A bit masculine with an undertone of femininity. Relaxed but still with a “bad girl” energy. I enjoy being comfortable and I appreciate the sex appeal aspect of fashion.

What’s your favorite movie for its style/fashion?
I’d have to say Selena for sure.

17, student and filmmaker

What are you wearing?
Large gray blazer, plaid trousers, and platforms all found at various thrift stores.

Describe your style:
I don’t like to just stick with one thing, it depends on if I’m feeling femme or masc. My style ranges from elderly woman from the ’70s to white boy who listens to HOMESHAKE and Frank Ocean.

What’s your favorite movie for its style/fashion?
Ferris Bueller’s cast did in fact go off with every single fit.
