LADY STYLES HERSELF
PERSONAL STYLE IS ABOUT INNER CREATIVITY AND EMOTION, ACCORDING TO SUNSHINE COAST MODEL AND SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER BROOKE STYLES
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.
