One of our favorite places to get our style inspo is from none other than the streets. Our work and school commutes are just cooler when we’re wearing a dope outfit. Sometimes, seeing a fellow WRUW girl in a great outfit just makes us double-take and want to know all about it!
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Emily Davis, a stylist, and visual merchandiser, and street style expert from Cincinnati who’ll be capturing all of the flyest looks she sees and interviewing the girls who’re wearing them in our Street Style Stars series!
Emily caught up with Yanni, a China native who moved to Cincinnati to attend design school at the University of Cincinnati.
Occupation: Aspiring designer
“I try to wear pieces that are unexpected or add an unexpected accessory.” This is evident by Yanni pairing an oversized, contrasting striped dress with a relaxed pair of sneakers and an adorable fur bunny keychain on her MCM tote.
Where do you draw fashion inspiration?
“My favorite brands are Opening Ceremony and Alexander Wang. I also get my style inspiration from Vogue magazine and of course, my mom. She’s a shopaholic, just like me.”
We sure can relate to that! What are go-to summer pieces?
“A denim jacket is perfect the perfect lighter layering piece. I love anything oversized and spaghetti strap tops. For summer, my favorite shoes right now are platform sandals.”
I don’t know about you but I’m ready to add those to my wardrobe ASAP! Check out Yanni’s budget-friendly picks below! For more of Yanni’s street style and authentic designs, head to her Instagram, @yanni.x_designs. To keep up with Emily, follow her here!
