With little to no effort, 28-year-old Chana-Lee Scott from May Pen has been leaving her followers in trails of fashion envy as she slays any attempted look.
Since moving to California five years ago, she has discovered her personal style on the sale racks of her favourite stores. “There’s a way to ensure that you’re never caught wearing the same pieces as everybody else. I shop a year in advance. Whatever I buy in one given year isn’t usually worn until the year after,” she explained.
Pants and tops mixed with bold accessories such as scarves, designer belts, and bags are Scott’s go-tos as they are easy to pair up without having to look like you’re wearing the same outfit. On any given day, white is the preferred colour, but she doesn’t shy away from bold colours, cuts, and designs and makes every effort to emphasise her stunning long legs and endowed cleavage.
“I love short dresses and long splits. If I feel like the split isn’t long enough, I will cut it until I’m pleased because these legs are gonna show,” she said with a chuckle.
When shopping for swimsuits, however, the nursing student prefers to focus on accentuating her cleavage.
Chana-Lee Scott has over 30 wigs. Of course, you’re wondering why, but it all made sense when she explained the science. “I travel a lot, and having one hairstyle for the entire trip is just not how I roll. I want to look like a new woman in almost every outfit,” she said. Here are a few bullet points to remember:
- Nothing beats a short bob paired with tight clothing.
- Bangs are for more flowy outfits.
- Long hair helps with coverage when showing some skin.
- Each outfit is chosen based on the wig selected, and the selected wig is based on the mood of the day and the occasion.
ADD A LITTLE DESIGNER
Some pieces are best purchased from designer brands because they are bound to last longer. “Bags, stilettos, belts, and sneakers. Some of my favourite brands are, Gucci, Christian Louboutin, and Louis Vuitton,” said Scott.
For travel, she always overpacks, but outfits are chosen based on the cultural theme of the country being visited and planned excursions.
At the end of the day, Scott knows exactly what works for her and encourages others who are interested in discovering their personal style to avoid the comfort zone, give it time, and enjoy wearing various styles of clothing.
