Best friends Taqueeta Sherrod, senior, and Elizabeth New, junior, talk about their style preferences and fashion advice to other fashionistas.
Describe your overall style.
Taqueeta: Classy, conservative, and business-like.
Elizabeth: I’m kind of versatile with my style. I like to try preppy, urban, chic, and nerdy; I like to do it all. I get bored with the same look.
What are your favorite clothing stores to shop at?
Taqueeta: Dots, A`gaci and Charlotte Russe.
Elizabeth: Charlotte Russe, A`gaci, Mandee and Rainbow.
What is your favorite item of clothing or accessory?
Taqueeta: Bracelets because they accent your outfits and fitted shirts show off your curves.
Elizabeth: Earrings because they bring out your face and accentuate your outfit. Also, I bought my first fedora hat in March and I thought it looked hot!
Who or what influences your fashion choices?
Taqueeta: God–because I ask him what I should wear, and he gives me an answer.
Elizabeth: I get my influences from magazines, E! News and people around me to try something else. God, too, because he gave me a creative mind.
Any fashion or style tips you would like to offer?
Taqueeta: Try to dress sexy-modest because you can try to be sexy without revealing a lot of skin.
Elizabeth: Check yourself before you wreck yourself. If you have a certain style, be fierce, fabulous and have fun.
