Warrior Wardrobe: Irina Ivchenko

By Cassie Kim

Describe your style in three words. 

Classic turned modern. 

Who are your fashion icons? 

Audrey Hepburn and Zendaya. 

What is a go to item in your closet? 

It depends on the season, but usually my favorite sandals or boots. 

Where do you get your clothes from? 

Honestly, anywhere as long as the style is cute and the price is good. I like H&M, Macy’s, and NY&Company. It really depends on what I am looking for. 

What is a fashion trend you love?

I love accessories, especially jewelry and glasses. 

What is a fashion trend you hate? 

I hate sandals and socks or Birkenstocks with socks. From a fashion perspective, they are completely and utterly disgusting. The only acceptable time to wear this is when you have to help your mom get groceries out of the car and you don’t have time to put on regular shoes. 

What are some fashion tips you have?

Don´t worry about what others might think, wear what you think looks good on you. Don´t be afraid to ask for advice! Your best friend often has good advice, but take all advice you get with a grain of salt. No one knows your style like you do. 

Author´s Note: I have to disagree with Irina. Sandals and socks are incredible; they keep your feet warm without compromising toe mobility!
