In the world of fashion, there are no boundaries as to what one can wear.
The CSUSB senior’s fashion taste is unique in using dark colors and classic apparel with a vintage and contemporary look, adding an edge to her outfits.
Janine said, “Fashion is something to have fun with; it’s a way to experiment and express ourselves, which is constantly changing.”
Janine’s style is described by CSUSB senior Shelby Hancock as an “edgy, and street urban look.”
“I usually just wear whatever I’m in the mood for, its never really the same. My mood can sometimes come from the music I listen to in the morning, so I guess you can say I’m spontaneous with my outfits,” said Janine.
She does not always try to match, and just wears whatever works well together.
Junior Jeremy Sandoval said, “she has a look that not everyone can pull off but she can definitely rock.”
Although her style is unique, Janine does not go to great lengths to put her outfits together.
Malls and thrift stores are some of Janine’s favorite stores, and her budget depends on what she is looking for.
“Sales are always a must and I can usually go from five dollar items to 200 dollar Michael Kors watches, but that’s digging into my pockets, but on average it can range from 10 to 100 dollars,” said Janine.
Some of her must-have pieces are classic Chuck Taylor Converse, denim, a gold watch, necklaces, and heels.
Janine admires how Vanessa Hudgens and Rihanna dress, and is inspired by their unique fashion taste.
Social media influences Janine’s fashion creativity, as she uses apps like Instagram and fashion blogs, and follows certain fashionistas such as Lisa Lee and Marycake, who inspire her outfits.
She is edgy and her outfits demonstrate that she is not afraid to be who she is and is comfortable with herself and image.
CSUSB junior Viviana Velasquez adds that, “She’s edgy, and is not scared to wear what she wants.”
Fashion is always changing and it is something that allows us to stand out and express individuality, and as Janine said, “Just wear what you want, as long as you’re comfortable and feel good.”
