style q&a

Describe your style in 5 words (or more!): Just one word—universal. One day I can be super colourful and cute and another I can be very basic Icelandic and others are like today, where I look very different. It all depends on my mood, but I love colourful things and two-piece sets like this. 

Favourite stores in Reykjavík: Wasteland, Monki, Galleri Sautján and, of course, Lovísa Tómas design

Favourite piece: I have a vinyl jacket that I bought on ASOS. It’s mint green with a little bit of fur. That’s one of my favourites, but there’s another dress from Lovísa Tómas—who made this outfit— that I love too. It’s a custom-made black turtleneck dress with a little mesh, velvet and a slit on the side. Those are my two favourite pieces right now because the dress makes me look so good and it’s custom-made by my friend and the jacket because it’s very cool and very different. 

Something I would never wear: Anything baggy that hides my waist. I don’t want to hide my figure!

Lusting after: New Dr. Martens. The black platform ones.
