18-year-old Gracie Davies moved from Wellington to Dunedin last year to begin her degree in public health and medicine. When she graduates she plans on becoming a community paediatric doctor, specialising in Maori children's health. To make a bit of cash and help support her love of fashion she works part-time at Factorie in Meridian Mall.

How would you describe your personal style? Laid back streetwear with a fancy feel to it. I love just taking a plain outfit and adding one thing that pops (in this case the pink earrings) to put a twist on mainstream outfits.

How has your sense of style evolved over the years? I used to wear a lot of black and dark colours, and mainly just stuck to a pair of jeans and a t-shirt everyday because I just liked being plain. Over the years I started seeing that lighter colours suited me more, and I started looking at clothes that had more textures, patterns and rips. Something that made them original.

Where do you seek inspiration for what to wear? I mainly get my inspiration of what I want to wear from models or online shopping websites or those that appear on Facebook. I get my inspiration from there, but end up putting my little twist on it to make it more unique. 

Who's your style icon?  I don’t really have a major style icon that I look up to, but I really do love the clothes that Kendall Jenner wears and also Hannah laity's style (Beauden Barrett's partner). I follow her on Instagram and I love how she takes plain outfits and makes them her own. 

What's an item you're eyeing this season? This season I'm really loving denim overalls. They go with everything and are really comfortable, but still look good. I am also really loving the denim skirt, as its easy to dress up or down.

What's your fave fashion season and why?
I love summer, its when I'm able to wear dresses, skirts, singlets and overalls. I love wearing stuff like that, as I feel that’s the best way to express my fashion style. 

What's the item of clothing you couldn't live without? I really couldn’t live without the basic jean jacket. I have one in blue and one in black and I wear them almost everyday. They are great for just throwing on top of an outfit and  making it look good. 

What's an item you wish other's could live without?
I wish others could live without ruffles. I myself really really don’t like ruffles on me, so I guess when I see them out and about I look at them and just think how can they make an outfit?

Why did you pick the outfit you choose? I picked the overalls because that’s what I'm really loving to wear this season, and with the white top underneath it was something simple yet looked good. I picked the pink tassel earrings as they were the element to make my outfit unique and pop. Tassel earrings have also been really popular this year and I have been loving the style of them. I picked the rose gold necklace for a bit of colour for the outfit as well, and I choose the sunnies as in the summer I always find that a pair of sunnies completes every look. Lastly, I chose the bag as it was a component that could dress the outfit up a little bit and I've been really loving the small of the shoulder bags.
