Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | CLOSET -

Style is not just in her name, it’s also in her look. Brooke Styles is a Sun­shine Coast girl who is pas­sion­ate about in­di­vid­u­al­ity and ex­press­ing her cre­ative side through fash­ion.

How­ever, she’s not just a pretty face. While her ca­reer ini­tially took off as a model and so­cial me­dia in­flu­encer, Brooke’s tech­nol­ogy skills, me­dia knowl­edge and busi­ness sense en­abled her to cre­ate her own busi­ness Za­har So­cial at just 24 years old.

Za­har So­cial cre­ates me­dia content for a range of busi­nesses in­clud­ing cafes, beauty brands and fash­ion la­bels.

Week­end Magazine caught up with Brooke to find out more about the per­son­al­ity be­hind the brand, and of course, her per­sonal style.

How would you de­scribe your per­sonal


Colour­ful and com­fort. I like to ex­press my cre­ativ­ity in how I dress.

You know if I’m hav­ing a su­per-cre­ative mo­ment if I come head-to-toe glam with pops of colour.

Mind-block days def­i­nitely con­sist of plain T-shirts and shorts.

Did you al­ways have this look?

Not at all. I was a shy darker teenager so my ’90s and early ’00s look was a sub­tle Goth look, con­sist­ing of blacks and heavy, dark prints.

These were the days when I would rock out to Off­spring and count down the days ’til school was out so I could hang out at fes­ti­vals.

Let’s not talk about the hor­rid dark glit­ter eye­shadow. What’s your favourite Sun­shine Coast cloth­ing store?

I love bou­tique shop­ping, so Shine Bou­tique in Alex is one of my lo­cal stops.

What’s your favourite au­tumn 2019 trend? My fav trend this sea­son def­i­nitely is a state­ment hair clip.

Bring­ing back the ’90s with clips, claws and bar­rettes bling up and recre­ate ba­sic hair­styles to com­plete ev­ery look.

Let’s get real, are you to­tally ad­dicted to on­line shop­ping, too?

Funny enough, no.

I’m one of those few who only shops in the dis­counted/marked-down sec­tion.

I walk straight to the back of the store search­ing for the sale rack and if an item still isn’t un­der $30, then it’s most likely not go­ing into my bas­ket.

I also love op shop­ping.

What is your ad­vice to other women try­ing to find their own style?

Don’t be scared to be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent.

I know its su­per-corny, but we have to re­mem­ber that not ev­ery fash­ion trend is for ev­ery­one, may it be be­cause of body shape, skin tone etc.

So be brave, and ex­plore what works with your body.

Any fash­ion/styling tips or se­crets you can share?

Al­ways have a ba­sic T-shirt. It’s my favourite way to change or com­plete a trend and style it down for a ca­sual look.
