Quad Style: Alexis Kim

Quad Style: Alexis Kim

Meet Alexis Kim, a third year Public Policy major from Watchung, New Jersey. She's the Marketing Head of Women in Business and is currently interning downtown at a tech incubator. In her free time, she likes to cook Korean food, watch French movies, and eat Jeni's ice cream with her friends!

How would you describe your style?

Clean-cut, comfortable, and feminine. My closet is filled mostly with basic pieces that I can wear in many different combinations.

What's your go-to outfit?

Right now, a t-shirt, flared jeans, sneakers, and my black duster coat.

What does fashion mean to you?

Whatever you'd like it to! For me, it's always been about authenticity and feeling good in my own skin.

Who or what are your style inspirations?

Liu Wen and Jeanne Damas. They're both very natural but elegant at the same time. My mom has also always been an inspiration. She taught me that my style is for myself, not to impress others.

What is your favorite current trend?

Slip dresses. They're loose fitting but still flattering. I wear mine with a white t-shirt underneath.

What are your favorite places to shop?

I really like Rag & Bone and Zadig & Voltaire. My favorite jeans right now are from Paige. I also have a handful of my mom's old sweaters and dresses that I love!
