Meet the newest member of the JD family, Helen, also known as @helenxto on Instagram. Have you ever seen such effortless style? Us neither, hence why we needed to get the low down and inspo behind the self-confessed Nike addict.
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I work within social media at a digital marketing company. It’s great because I’m a prime user of social media (well, Instagram) but digital marketing as a whole is pretty multifaceted and insightful.
What’s your go-to fashion trend?
Striped shirts, oversized blazers and wide black trousers are pretty timeless simple silhouettes that will always have a place in my heart. I really like Korean street style, as it encapsulates the aforementioned styles perfectly, especially with metal accessories.
Have you ever had any fashion disasters?
Where do I even begin to start? I wore skirts over jeans in primary school and I thought I was really stylish. This was around the same period slouch boots were considered cool so we all had our moments.
What influences your style?
Anything and everything. I don’t think I can pinpoint my style to one source but Instagram, street style and online browsing are the main ones. I tend not to jump on ‘trending’ styles just because it’s popular as I’m indecisive and I get bored of wearing things easily unless I absolutely love it.
Describe your wardrobe…
Minimal and relaxed, a simple medium between casual and formal. I prefer baggier fits and clothes that let you breathe. The main kinda garments you’ll see me in are wide leg trousers, stripe shirts and a good simple tee.
What are your favourite trainers and why?
Currently it’s the Nike Air Monarchs because who doesn’t love a good chunky trainer nowadays? I own the black pair too so it’s just easy to wear every day. I’ll probably wear these for a while until I find my next favourite pair, which could very well be my new Nike Air Max 97s.
Song on repeat ATM?
A tad late but Sza – Garden.
If you could only wear one trainer for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Of my own collection, it’ll be between my Off White x Nike prestos and Nike Monarchs. I’m too indecisive to decide.
Keep your eyes peeled, we have more of Helen coming soon…
