Style Star: Jackie A

share on:

After a long hiatus, one of our favourite columns on 360nobs is back. Today’s Style Star is Canadian blogger, Jackie or Miss J as she is fondly  called. Jackie’s style can be described as edgy, fun & fearless. She plays with all styles, cuts & prints. Her style is very versatile so it is hard to compare her to any celebrity, something about her however reminds me of Janelle Monae and Solange Ferguson(formerly Knowles).

I  love that she embraces African prints, and I think her skin is absolutely flawless. 360nobs loves Jackie’s style, do you?SONY DSC

How do you get your hair and make-up done?

I wear my hair in various ways, I especially love wearing weaves. Lately, I have embraced my natural hair and have been experimenting with different ways to wear it. It is however cold right now so I prefer to wear weaves that look like my natural hair. I use products such as olive oil, castor oil, and make sure I deep condition my hair every 2 weeks.

When it comes to makeup I try to keep my makeup simple and natural. I love Mary Kay matte-wear liquid foundation.

Do you have a favourite place to shop?

I shop everywhere. I’m not really loyal to a particular store. However, I mostly find myself shopping in thrift stores, Zara, H&M, Smart Set, Express, Winners, and smaller boutiques.

What item can you not have enough of?

It’s very hard to pick, I shop and buy what I love. However, I do have an obsession with blazers. I love them! I have many of them in various colors, materials, patterns and prints.

Do you have any style icons?

Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles are my style icons, both of their styles are classy, funky and unique



Which celebrity on the Nigerian and international scene would you swap closets with?

I really love Yvonne Nelson’s sense of style and would love to swap closets with her. I would also love to play in Nelly Aboagye’s closet, the designer of Duaba Serwa. Her designs are amazing!!Style Star_Miss J_06__360nobs

What do you wear on the average day?

What I wear on an average day is all dependent on what I am doing for that day. However, I’m usually wearing something semi formal, or if I’m at school jeans. If I’m going out I try to keep it modest, fun, comfortable, but dressy at the same time. I’m always experimenting but still try to stay true to myself.SONY DSCSONY DSC
