Be comfortable and confident in your own skin. “My fashion style isn’t something I can pinpoint or name. It depends on the type of day, time of day, and my mood on that day. Most of the time, I’d lean more on both bohemian to street to mixing them both up, as long as I keep everything at par and I keep myself comfortable,” says Issa. For her, feeling comfortable comes hand in hand with being able to carry yourself with confidence. “You can be in your simplest but with confidence, you’ll definitely be at your best-est!”
Drop the “How to be you?” expression. “Anyone who tries to be someone else may be lost.” Holding no bounds in fashion is all good, as long as you’re you, she continues. “Be your own self, find originality, be honest and true to your art and heart!”
Slay any outfit with your best vibe. Issa stresses the importance of wearing your personality everywhere you go. “Keep it positive—that’ll be your best outfit! It will take you a long way!”
