Senior Diego Aquino is hard to miss as he struts the Westmont High School hallways with a glowing face and his signature tote bag. He consistently stands out as one of Westmont’s most fashionable students. Aquino never fails to make the most out of any situation and be fashionably late! He will only wear the latest trends and must have a Brandy Melville item incorporated into his outfits. Additionally, his unreal makeup skills always add an extra pop of surprise and glam to his looks. As his friend, Christine Santos, said, “He has an effortless style, but it just always comes together and looks so fashionable.” Below is an exclusive interview with this issue’s fashion boy!
What are three words to describe your style?
Slay, slay, SLAY!
Who/what are your fashion icons?
2000s icons like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Destiny’s Child.
What is your go-to item in your closet?
A good pair of low-rise flare jeans.
Where do you get your clothes from?
Brandy Melville, Urban Outfitters, Garage—basically all basic stores.
What is a fashion trend you love?
I love those mini baby-tee shirts with words on them. Britney Spears slayed when she started the trend! I also love anything with lace.
What is a fashion trend you hate?
Denim-on-denim is really ugly on other people and on me as well (unless you’re Julia Fox who rocks denim on denim on denim!) I despise a crocheted sweater. It’s giving grandma dying on her bed.
How long do you spend putting together outfits?
Honestly, that could range from like 2 seconds to 2 hours. The only times I take the longest is for parties. Planning outfits for parties is like deciding whether to go to war or not. You neeeed to choose the perfect outfit, or else you’re a flop.
