Portrait of Tammy Strobel
Associate Style Editor Gracia Phang decodes the spirit of youth
My Reading Room
While some might de ne “youth” as those aged between 15 and 24, I like to see it as a state of mind, TYVM. Less birthdate and more attitude: It’s an enthusiasm for life, the courage to venture into the unknown and the guts to chase dreams, no matter how big or how far o the beaten path they take you. Channel that daring zest for life with bright hues and loud prints—a vibrant shirt from LOEWE Paula’s Ibiza (2) teamed with on-trend mini shorts (4) and a refreshed version of Fendi’s Baguette bag (1) will do nicely. Feeling extra? Go the way of Balenciaga (6), and opt for blown-up proportions and multicoloured prints, complete with slides (8) for ease. Keep your makeup to the bare minimum with neat brows—tidy up with a clear brow gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills (12)—and a soft wash of colour on the cheeks (7). Balance the look with polished classics such as gold hoops from Dior (15), a chic everyday ring from Monica Vinader (3) and an irreverent pair of socks (9). Finally, don a bling-if-you-dare Chanel J12 X-Ray (5) for some serious wrist action. Learn the latest lingo, answer all questions with nods and scowls, and you’ll be slaying it.
