Quad Style: Kira Ke
Can you introduce yourself to our readers? (e.g. name, year, majors + minors, RSOs + hobbies)
Hello! My name is Kira. I come from Canada and study Political Science at the College - now in my fourth year. I love reading, drawing, and being outdoors. This quarter I’m helping produce a book evaluating the effectiveness of U.S. counterterrorism strategies abroad. On campus I help run a foreign-policy RSO called MPOST.
What are you wearing (for this shoot)?
Here I’m repping some Canadian brands – coat and beige shirt from Oak + Fort and pants from Aritzia. Earrings and socks are probably from Amazon and dress is from COS. Beanie is from a street vender in Japan.
How would you describe your style?
I like simple clothes that fit well and feel nice. Block colours, muted tones, good material, and some interesting design motif do it for me. But my everyday clothes at UChicago are more just whatever I can throw together before I’m late to class.
What does fashion mean to you?
It’s a fun way for me to change the way I look.
Who or what are your style inspirations?
I’m trying to emulate Beyoncé’s earring game from Don’t Hurt Yourself. Otherwise, I’m inspired by the people I pass by in daily life, my city, my sister, and K-pop.
What is your favorite current trend?
I’m really digging that cropped, fringe jeans look right now but it’s getting too chilly. So I’m going to go with turtlenecks. Is it current? I don’t know. But what I do know is that they shield me from the wind. Haters be hating but my neck is warm and snug.
What are your favorite places to shop?
My sister’s closet but I don’t spend money there
And lastly, most important part of any look?
