Street Style: Meet Jay

Meet Jay Adams, age 20 from Ottawa, Ontario…

Describe your style: Comfortably polished.  I enjoy bold patterns, sheer and frilly material and anything with a touch of femininity.

Last item of clothing you bought and for how much? The last item of clothing I bought was a snake skin print (and super light weight), trench coat from a Jones New York Outlet I went to with my mom.  It was originally $195, marked down to the low cost of $29.

Dream Job? My dream job is to be an editor of a fashion magazine.

Your fashion inspiration? I take inspiration from basically everything around me; the people I meet and their styles, magazines, art, DIY projects and even being outside in nature.

Something about yourself most people don’t know: I would love to spend time abroad, ideally somewhere in Europe, studying and experiencing fashion at some point in my life.

What color do you own most of: With a fear of sounding boring I’m going to exempt black and white on the technicality that they are shades; in that case, my closet consists of a surprisingly large amount of red and pink.

Fav stores: Zara, H&M, rag & bone, Joe Fresh, thrift

One outfit you couldn’t live without? A maxi dress, or any kind of summer dress for that matter

Fav designer? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, up-and-coming designer Isobel Walker for frAsh

Fashion mantra? Dictate your own style
