Style Files: Ali Arboleda
Name: Ali Arboleda
Toned down B. Simple, classic and quite preppy (and comfortable also!). I'd like to think that my style's a subdued version of Blair Waldorf. :)Know other stylish teens on the web? Comment down below!
Usual haunts. Usually Plains&Prints, Bayo, Space, U. I love SM! They really do have everything, hahaha.
Favorite fashion designer. Local: Rajo Laurel—classic and clean lines but still modern; Foreign: Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenburg.
Completes every outfit. Pearl earrings and/or watch.
Style inspiration. My mom and sisters are subtly stylish also; I think the style factor is in the genes.
Style icons. Jackie O and Princess Diana! I also like Nicole Richie's boho chic look although I can never pull it off. I also like the style of Lindsay Lohan (although her leggings are getting tiring, hahaha) and Rachel Bilson—uber chic that's effortless. I also like Heidi Klum.
Style influences. My mom never let me wear anything too trendy or too crazy and I found that I was thankful for that.
Closet color palette. I have a lot of whites, greens and blues. And I went a bit purple crazy late last year.
Never ever. Elephant pants. Some high school friends went crazy over them once upon a time and I thought they were crazy! ;)
Ultimate style trio. Jeans, pearl earrings, classic white shirt
Trend flashback. I try not to be too trendy and I thanked the gods of fashion for the comeback of the skinny jeans. Otherwise, I'd still be drowning in flared denim.
