We’re so excited to continue our #MyStyleMyStory series, where we have real women share their story and, of course, their fabulous and individual style. Because personal style is a story in itself! And we want to know: How does your style tell your story?
This week, we’re featuring Kollectin's very own Julia!
Julia is a part of Kollectin’s Digital Marketing and Outreach team, so she’s not only super amiable, but she’s hilarious, too! Get to know her in Kollectin's #MyStyleMyStory below. After, be sure to take our survey for YOUR CHANCE to be featured in Kollectin's #MyStyleMyStory and take home some fab Kollectin jewelry!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW YOU?
Natural and minimal, with some alternative and athletic vibes sprinkled in. Is that too many adjectives? I guess my go-to is an unfitted black or white tee with some sort of jean variation on the bottom. I like to go for the "looks great without really trying" look. Not too sure if I've ever successfully pulled that off, though.
DO YOU HAVE A STYLE STAPLE? SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK IS A CONSTANT IN YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Black. All the black. And lots of other neutrals. They're the easiest to coordinate before running out for the day.
CAN YOU REMEMBER WHAT/WHO WERE YOUR EARLIEST STYLE INFLUENCES WERE IN CHILDHOOD THROUGH YOUR TEENAGE YEARS?
Probably Rocket Power. Prime Nickelodeon programming right there. I was really into skateboarding and basketball as a kid, so I dug all of their outfits whenever they would go and do one of the bazillion sports they played. I moved to LA, too, so maybe it had more of an affect on me than I thought since the show took place in a city that was based off of Santa Monica.
WHAT/WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES TODAY?
Does John Mayer count? His sweatshirt and windbreaker game is off the charts. Idk, I honestly feel like I would wear any outfit that I've seen him in.
WHAT IS A TREND YOU’RE OBSESSED WITH?
Anything that looks unisex
WHAT ABOUT GUILTY PLEASURES? A TREND YOU SECRETLY ADORE?
Color tinted glasses
HOW DOES JEWELRY PLAY IN TO YOUR STYLE AND YOUR STORY? WHAT ARE YOUR EARLIEST MEMORIES WITH JEWELRY?
I was a huge tomboy when I was younger. The only jewelry I was really into were rings, mainly mood rings at that (90s represent). I really love a more natural look so I don't typically wear jewelry day-to-day, but when I do add jewelry to my wardrobe, it makes me feel extra special. I've also found that I've gone through phases of certain types of accessories, and when I do that's the only thing I really wear. I went through the ring phase as a kid, a bracelet phase in high school, then an earring phase in college, a watch phase post-college, and now necklaces. Maybe this represents the changing ~phases~ of my ~life~ but I honestly couldn't tell you why I'm like that. What I'm really into right now are smaller, feminine pieces, like layered gold necklaces with maybe a very thin gold bracelet. Anything simple, dainty, and feminine.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE KOLLECTIN PIECES? WHY DO YOU LOVE THEM?
Charmed by Mehgan Zodiac Necklace - Surprise: a simple and feminine gold necklace that I love! It's super classic, and I get to proudly rep that I'm a Scorpio.
Fiona Ring Set - I adore their natural look on top of the fact that you have the option to pair them up or wear them individually. They also go with anything, which I love.
Starr Necklace - This is a piece I'd never naturally gravitate to, but I honestly can't take my eyes off of it when someone is wearing it!
