STREET STYLE

The Coast - - OPINIONATED / SHOPTALK - BY MEGHAN TANSEY WHITTON

How would you de­scribe your style? My style has al­ways been very ba­sic, sim­ple and clas­sic. I don’t like to over­com­pli­cate my out­fits and I al­ways stick to neu­tral col­ors. I am al­ways on the hunt for sales and I never buy any­thing full price, which is a big money- saver! When it comes to my style, the say­ing “less is more” is quite ac­cu­rate.

Who/where do you de­rive in­spi­ra­tion from when putting to­gether an out­fit? In­sta­gram is def­i­nitely my in­spi­ra­tional tool nowa­days. I can spends hours on In­sta­gram look­ing at var­i­ous out­fits on dif­fer­ent fash­ion ac­counts with­out even real­iz­ing I’ve spent a good chunk of my day scrolling through pho­tos.

How does liv­ing in Hal­i­fax af­fect your fash­ion choices? I just moved to Hal­i­fax this sum­mer but it’s al­ready in­flu­enced my style quite dras­ti­cally. It’s a very trendy city so it’s nice to be able to see dif­fer­ent fash­ion trends whether you’re in line get­ting a cof­fee or go­ing for a walk at Point Pleas­ant. I would also say the weather here is def­i­nitely the num­ber one fac­tor that af­fects my fash­ion choice. I tend to dress in lay­ers as the weather is a bit un­pre­dictable so wear­ing an over­sized scarf or a comfy knit­ted cardi­gan is def­i­nitely key dur­ing win­ters in Hal­i­fax.

Name a cur­rent trend that you just can’t get on board with? Bold colours or dif­fer­ing pat­terns have al­ways been con­sid­ered a trend but that is some­thing I could never get on board with. My colour scheme never seems to go fur­ther than browns or maybe even a for­est green but I’ve al­ways ad­mired those who can pull off bold colours or pat­terns.
