STYLE GURU BIO: Samantha Prasopthum

Ciao, fellow Fashionistas/os! I’m Sam and I am a junior at New York University where I study photography & imaging and studio art. This summer, however, I will be reporting the latest trends from my hometown in sunny Los Angeles!

I am incredibly fortunate to be able to travel from coast to coast. When I visit California the scenery, people and overall energy of my surroundings always inspire me. California grounds me, rejuvenates me and inspires me to create since there is so much to do and see. There are so many places to explore there and I have a serious case of wanderlust. I cannot wait to get in my car and go on multiple road trips this summer! I will miss New York City, but I have missed the open road more.

My style is definitely inspired by California. Even in the NYC winter you can spot me sporting a crop top. I love crop tops since they help keep me cool in the hot weather and I usually pair them with fun, edgy high-waisted pants. I love pants with eccentric prints since they are a simple way to spruce up your outfit and to add some dimension. High-waisted pants are also a great everyday staple if you are petite like me! I love them since they give the illusion of longer legs. I also favor strappy summer heels for the extra added height!

Since I’m a visual artist I favor a lot of ethereal and odd accessories like my necklace. It was handmade by an NYC artist named KT Ferris and the eye actually blinks! Lastly, I like to carry colorfully designed lipsticks, journals, pouches and other fun accessories with me daily. Therefore, I want to show them off! I can’t get enough of my clear backpack, which can match with any summer outfit (how perfect).

I am so excited to see what’s in store for me this summer and to meet some rad Fashionistas/os as I roam around California! I hope you all continue to follow me on my adventures—feel free to follow my Instagram to stay updated!
