Personal style: “It’s kind of preppy, with some street style thrown in there. I come from North Carolina, so it’s very southern, so a lot of people are preppy there. But then when I moved here, a lot of people aren’t that preppy so I kind of changed it when I moved here to kind of… not stand out as much. I like to stand out to look nice.”
Shopping tip: “Try stuff on before you buy it and find what you’re comfortable wearing. I’d definitely say to stick to certain color palettes, like if you like darker stuff or lighter stuff. Shop on the sales rack, it’s a good place to look. You can buy a lot more clothes for a lot less money and keep it interesting.”
Fashion inspiration: “My mom has always dressed very nice, and I guess I take after her. I look a lot on shopping apps, like HauteLook and JackThreads and you see what they’re wearing on there and I’ll kind of be like, ‘Oh I like that and I like that, I have something like that I could wear.’”
Fashion fast fact: Austin says he tends to opt for button-ups over more casual t-shirts. The one he is wearing here is from J. Crew.
