Distraction: How did you get the idea to use a hair tie to taper your skirt?
Chleo: My skirt was too long, and I didn’t want to send it to the tailor.
Distraction: We really like your vibrant watch and bracelets. What do you consider when accessorizing?
Chleo:Well, I don’t really like luxury watches because they make me feel like I’m wearing a price tag on my wrist. Instead, I just look for standout pieces.
Distraction: What is one tip you can give students who are interested in more creativity with their fashion choices?
Chleo: Don’t try too hard to be trendy because you will just look like everyone else on the street.
Distraction: Name five staple items in your closet you can’t live without.
- Plain white t-shirt
- Long sleeve shirt
- High-top sneakers
Distraction: Do you have any advice for girls looking to pair this season’s staples in a unique way?
Chleo: Well, in Miami you can’t really follow the season. But darker tones can at least help us feel a bit like we are in the fall/winter season.
Distraction: How much do you pay attention to current trends?
Chleo: I do watch a lot fashion shows but I don’t like to follow the trends. Things look good on the models because they are MODELS! Sometimes, what they wear on the runways won’t necessary look good on everyone.
Distraction: You see a “sale” sign at a clothing store and you…
Chleo: I love to shop online!
