We scoured a few local hotspots for the most fashion-forward individuals we could find to talk about their unique style ...

ANN KENNEDY

24, designer at Knorth Studios

What are you wearing? Thrifted top, Anthropologie pants, Target shoes, Urban Outfitters cardigan.

Describe your style: Edgy – always casual, always always comfortable.

What is your style inspiration? Billie Eilish and @uglyworldwide on Instagram.

If you had to wear one thing in your wardrobe for the rest of your life what would you choose? These pants, probably.

What would be your ultimate style backdrop? Leonardo DiCaprio holding me up on the Titanic.


DANIEL SHOEMAKER

27, financial advisor at Blue Granite Wealth

What are you wearing? Hugo Boss blazer with Men’s Wearhouse pants, shirt from Younkers, shoes are Cole Haan.

Describe your style: Classy with a touch of fun and laid-back, ties are overrated.

What is your style inspiration? The mannequin or the salesperson’s recommendation.

If you had to wear one thing in your wardrobe for the rest of your life what would you choose? I would go with this jacket – I really like the texture of it – or a pair of Lulu Lemon shorts. They’re so cozy.

What would be your ultimate style backdrop? The peak of a mountain with some snow – because that’s beautiful – but that’s also cold, so some sunshine to warm things up.


KIANA SCHOEN

24, retail manager at Old Navy

What are you wearing? High-rise jeans from Old Navy, shirt from H&M, and boots from Charlotte Russe.

Describe your style: Usually whatever I can find that’s comfortable and affordable, and style comes after that – things that are fun that have different textures and an array of colors.

What is your style inspiration? I look at Old Navy, H&M, and Target for everyday inspiration.

If you had to wear one thing in your wardrobe for the rest of your life what would you choose? Probably a maxi dress because they’re comfortable and easy.

What would be your ultimate style backdrop? Outside somewhere, in the woods maybe. But with a nice mountain-scape in the back.


ANNIE PAUPORE

36, customer support specialist

What are you wearing? Fitted dress from Express, and my shoes are from Primp Boutique, a chain boutique out of Minneapolis.

Describe your style: Right now, I’m thinking maternity chic – that’s about all that’s on my mind – anything that’s making me feel feminine and stylish.

What is your style inspiration? I have to put it on to know how I feel – the way the clothing makes me feel and the way I carry myself when it’s on me is what really inspires me.

If you had to wear one thing in your wardrobe for the rest of your life what would you choose? I would choose a really versatile feminine dress that I could wear some flats with or some heels to mix it up.

What would be your ultimate style backdrop? An urban setting. I’m a bonafide city girl. Definitely something with concrete, pavement, buildings in the background.
