ASC: Street Style, Jenee Hardy ’15

How would you sum up your style?
I would say my style is a mixture of several things: Bohemian, comfort, masculinity, effeminacy. I associate with the term Bohemian because it implies something unconventional. Comfort is of great importance to me and, while most will never see me out in sweats, I do feel it is important to wear clothes that make me feel comfortable. I say both masculine and effeminate because I tend to mix the two- crossing the styles and making it into something my own.

Who or what would you consider your strongest style influence?
I would say my feelings are my strongest influence for my style, because how I feel is how I dress. When I was younger, my mom used to complain that I took too long to get dressed in the mornings trying to figure out what I was going to wear… Not much has changed. I still take too long to get dressed some mornings and never pick out my outfits ahead of time, because it’s all based on my emotions for the day.

Unfortunately, it’s not so great.
