Shortly after graduating from Lincoln University with a degree in Business Management, Mietta  enrolled at Parsons, The New School of Design, where she completed a Fashion Marketing Associates degree. And in February 2019, whilst working across different sectors of the Fashion industry in styling, PR and luxury retail, decided to create a style blog called “StylingNthangs” to share her fashion interests, shopping addiction and style tips with the world.
 
Currently based in NYC, we caught up with Mietta for a Q&A. 

Who are your current fashion influences?

“I always pay attention to what the current fashion trends are and choose which trends I like best and can incorporate into my daily wardrobe now and once the trend has died down. Social media ads and fashion influencers also influence my fashion as well. Sometimes I see an ad or influencer wearing something and I’m like.. ‘ohhh, I like that or I have that in my closet….let me see if I can find it’.

I also pay close attention to brands and the social & ethical responsibility of the brand; it’s important for me to know the brands I support have great values. Is your team diverse, what are you doing to help save the planet ? etc. These questions influence what brands I spend my money with.”

What influences your daily dress sense? And how would you describe your style?

My mood determines what I wear on a daily basis. Some days I feel like wearing a dress and knee high boots and other days I feel like wearing a suit, paired with sneakers. It really just depends on how I feel and what I’m doing for the day. However, my go to everyday style is comfortable chic. I’m a denim girl, I love the versatility of denim. You can dress denim up or down; with sneakers, boots, or high heels. I also wear a lot of neutral colors, especially black. I’ve been told wearing all black is a NYC thing lol.

What were you wearing during lockdown? And did you struggle with how to dress or what to wear during lockdown?

For the first three months of lockdown I wore oversized t-shirts and leggings or sweatpants and loved it. I didn’t have to go out much, but if I did go to the grocery store, etc. I would wear jeans, sneakers, basic crew neck tops and a blazer or denim jacket. Once June hit, I started to dress up even if I didn’t have anywhere to go. I didn’t struggle with what to wear, but eventually I realized getting dressed even if I didn’t have anywhere to go did make me feel good. After a few months of the lockdown, I started feeling down and little lifestyle changes like dressing up again helped me lift my spirits.

Which one are you ?

Tea/coffee?

A big yes for Tea, coffee doesn’t work for me.

Red lipstick or nude ?

Nude lipstick. It ‘s perfect for the daytime (for work) or nighttime. I just add my favorite lip gloss, the Fenty Beauty rose nude gloss bomb over my nude lipstick to give my lips an extra pop.

High heels or sneakers ?

Sneakers…in my 20’s it was all about high heels lol…Now in my early 30’s it’s all about comfort.

Netflix & chill or rooftop cocktail hour ?

Both. Rooftop cocktail hour during the spring & summer seasons. Netflix & chill once the fall & winter season arrives.

Two must have fashion items for the closet are…

A black blazer and a pair of black high heels!
