There’s no denying that some of us just have a natural sense of style. It is easy for us to put outfits together that always look good and fashionable. But what if you are missing this sense wouldn’t be nice to get some advice from stylish people. Sure it would! So here it goes. We decided to kick off our new Blogger of the Month series with the Swiss-based style influencer Anna Mardan. We caught up with Anna while she was designing her DIZAIND bag. She was excited to share her styling tips with all of you.
Hi, Anna, could you start by telling us a bit about yourself?
Hi there! My name is Anna Maradan, a 22 y/o Swiss women living in the beautiful Swiss Riviera in a small town near Montreux. I work full time in a Hotel Institute as A Student Affairs Coordinator. I’m a fashion, beauty and travel addict. I can spend hours and hours reading fashion magazines, and I love to discover new trends!
Moreover, I never lose an opportunity to travel because Traveling is living! My next stop might be Tokyo!
Can you tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it?
At the beginning of this year, I launched my blog. I wanted to get out of the box and do something different and not just post pictures of my outfits through the social medias… For my blog, I mainly focus on what I wear, what inspires me and I also always post about my trips.
My main inspiration was the Swedish fashion blogger Angelica Blick. She really defines the youth through her social medias. I simply love her style and mindset.
How would you describe your personal style?
I’m the type of girl who likes to dress casual, you will often see me wearing a pair of sneakers and a t-shirt, but I’ll always throw a pinch of glamor in it!
Where do you tend to buy your clothes, and why?
It always depends on what I’m looking for. I enjoy going to Zara, Misguided, Boohoo, MissyEmpire, Asos. But the best thing for me is when I randomly find a random small shop in the corner of a random street that no one knows about… I always find amazing pieces!
What pieces do you invest in and why?
I like to invest in basic pieces. As I said earlier, I like to dress casually.
Do you have any fashion rules when putting an outfit together?
I used to follow some rules like “do not mix more than three colors for one outfit, etc., etc…” To be honest, I don’t think there aren’t any rules when it comes to fashion. Just wear what you like, be confident and you’ll look amazing! =)
Who does your amazing photography?
(Hahahaha) That’s the question most people tend to ask me! Usually, it’s my friends or my mother! I always try to carry around my Olympus Pen camera everywhere I go so that as soon as I find a good spot, I take a picture and then edit it with the app’ VSCO and RNI Films. It’ simple as that =).
What is the best fashion advice you’ve ever received?
Honestly, I’ve never received any advice from anyone… GIRLS! Just be yourself and express yourself through your style!
You have dizaind your bag, how did you like the experience?
It was amazing! I totally loved it! Of course, it took some time to create my own design but I really wanted the most amazing bag… I wanted a unique bag that would fit with a lot of my outfits. We created a unique saddle bag with kisses stickers, and I honestly think it’s one of my favorite in my closet.
What would be your style advice to others who would also like to design a bag?
To create an all around bag. How cool would it be to be able to wear your personal design every day with any outfit?!!
