Abi Radcliffe’s Style Crush

Abi Radcliffe’s Style Crush

Hey Abi!

I’ve always admired your whimsical and colorful aesthetic. You bring so much joy to Instagram and I really enjoy following you! Your style is super cool and I would love to hear about who inspires you! 

Let’s get into it..

Who is your style crush?

My Style crush is Pernille Rosenkilde

What do you specifically love about their style?

She has such a fun approach to clothing and selects pieces that infuse absolute joy. She plays around with silhouette and proportions and really excels at layering.

How does it impact you clothing decisions on a daily?
I think the way her clothing impacts me is just not taking fashion so seriously. Really experimenting/mixing and matching, and having a lot of fun with what’s in your closet.

What is your signature look?
My signature look has a lot of layering. I like to add blazers, cardigans, and vests into my wardrobe. I like to play with a bit of proportions. Something oversized is usually involved and I love leaning towards that Bohemian rocker effortless style. I joke that I like to sometimes appear as if I got dressed in the dark and then just went for it.

What can’t you leave the house without?
I can’t leave the house without my phone, I really enjoy capturing moments throughout the day that make me smile and then sharing it on Instagram.

Favorite trend?

My favorite trend right now is the comeback of all the shoes I used to wear back in high school. That Y2K flat form and slides look I’m definitely really enjoying.

Most worn piece in your closet?
My most worn piece in my closet is the Aritzia cherelle blazer. I love it so much that I purchased it in Black and in Bone. The drape and slightly oversized fit of it complements every look and it takes well from day to evening.

Shoe mvp?

Converse, I’ve had mine for years and they just keep getting better and better. They’re so comfortable and pair well with maxi dresses and skirts.

Shopping spots? 
I made it a personal goal of mine a couple of years ago to really start to eliminate fast fashion. I do love fast fashion a lot but at the end of the day I love supporting female owned Jewish brands. For the trendier pieces I fill them in with H&M, Aritzia, free people and the occasional asos. I also love a good vintage shopping find. My best vintage pieces are just from scouting Etsy.   

Designer brands your eyeing?
I’m currently loving Miu Miu - their loafer is absolute perfection.

Zodiac sign?

I’m an Aquarius and I’m such an Aquarius 🤣

Fave color?

There is no way I can chose a favorite color. I love a good green but pink also just hits and now we have watermelon sugar!

Outfit picking strategy?
I love to wear super seamless, comfortable, and easy clothing. I’m always on the go and I know I’m gonna be in it for multiple hours. I usually start with some sort of base. Probably a dress and I’ll work from there. I always pick the pieces first and the shoes are always last.

 

Style mantra?

My mantra is just don’t take yourself so seriously but you also just have to feel good in what your wearing. If your feeling uncomfortable and not confident, it will show. Really just make sure that you OWN your look and just go for it. It doesn’t matter what other people think. if you love your outfit commit to that. It’s such an amazing thing to just really hone in and own your own personal style.

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Three words: bohemian, chill, happy

Favorite type of food?

Pizza

Fave Cocktail?

My favorite cocktail is a mojito and if there’s a spicy version - I’ll always opt for it

Favorite flower?

Roses are so gorgeous. I grow them in my garden!

Favorite part of Instagram?

My favorite part of Instagram are the connections I have made with people. I have made so many genuine relationships because of the app and I love connecting with people there.

Something you wish people knew about you?

I usually don’t bring up my background but as a kid I used to take my moms scarfs and turn them into Barbie clothing. I always loved fashion and followed it to a T. I would buy magazines, I loved project runway, and I loveddd Rachel Zoe. Rachel Zoe was THE holy grail of style. I went to fashion school for more of the business side of fashion and then for image consulting as well. I can totally say I’ve grown up with a love for clothing and design.

Hidden talent?

Hidden talent - I can hoola hoop for a really long amount of time!
