Junior, Sasya Reddy, is unquestionably one of the most fashionable gals in our grade. Often seen rocking her infamous trenchcoat and her dazzling smile, Ms. Reddy shows Westmont High School the true meaning of style. Here is a comprehensive interview with the one and only (all hail Queen Sasya!):
Describe your style in three words:
Classic, Bold, Feminine
Who is/are your fashion icons?
I definitely take inspiration from fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood. I absolutely adore her runway looks and the inventive ways she redefines historical silhouettes and introduces pattern mixing. Cher from Clueless is another fashion icon of mine because I love her preppy style. Internationally, Deepika Padukone has such an amazing sense of style and grandeur with each and every one of her red carpet looks.
What is a go-to item in your closet?
My trench coat!
Where is your favorite place to go shopping for clothes?
The thrift store, specifically the Goodwill on Prospect Rd.
What is a fashion trend you love?
I love maximalism! The more patterns and textures, the better. I especially adore how many of the people who adopt this trend mix expressive fabrics and accessories with more traditional silhouettes and styles. In my opinion, it is the trend that encapsulates the energy of re-purposing old styles and harnessing creativity and has definitely defined our current generation’s style in many ways.
What is a fashion trend you hate?
I have an incredibly hard time picking a fashion trend I hate because I think that every style has its merits and history, but I would be lying if I said that I enjoyed wearing athleisure. Despite its cute styles and feminist history, I find it unflattering on me personally, and I shy away from the homogeneous look that most athletic wear has. It maintains a much more minimalistic attitude, resisting various textures and patterns that my favorite trend, maximalism, calls for. I do think that there is a lot of beauty and practicality to athleisure, and I love seeing it on other people!
Do you have any fashion advice for your peers?
Don’t be afraid to wear what you want! I find that the most comforting feeling is knowing that no one truly notices or cares about the way you look. Experiment without worrying about what others will think and just wear what makes you happy.
