STYLE GURU BIO: Qalani Aimes

Hello fellow Fashionistas/os! I am Qalani Aimes, a junior at Loyola University Chicago majoring in public relations and advertising. I am currently studying abroad in Madrid, Spain and so far I am loving it! This is my first semester as a Style Guru and I can’t wait to curate and share my love for fashion with you all!

Let me tell you more about myself: I was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts. My siblings and I are 12 plus years apart, and I’m the oldest. Pink is my favorite color but you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at my wardrobe. Lastly, tacos are my weakness.

I would like to attribute my keenness for fashion to my dad. When I younger he made sure that I was always wearing the “flyest” outfits. Even though I wore a uniform Monday through Friday, he made sure on the weekends it was my time to shine. While my dad no longer picks out my clothes or even goes shopping with me, his guidance helped cultivate my personal style.

When it comes to style, bold accessories and layering are my go-tos. I gain a lot of inspiration from the celebrity of style June Ambrose, a.k.a my fashion mom. For my look, I decided to do something simple with a splash of color. I wore a striped turtleneck (my favorite piece to wear in the winter), distressed jeans, my favorite pair of lace-up black boots, a faux fur coat, and a yellow bucket bag.

Thank you for reading this and I look forward to connecting with you!
