Please introduce yourself
Hi! My name is Anis bt Idros. Really simple right? I am 19 years old and I’m majoring in Electrical Power Engineering. And I know most of you would think that Engineering students are geeks or introverted or think that we only love maths but that’s not true at all!
I actually enjoy doing design, editing, photography and videography, I love singing, and I love socializing so break your stereotype against Engineering students! Hahaha
What is your current occupation?
I am currently a student!
Where can we find you online?
My Instagram is https://www.instagram.com/aniskot/
My twitter is https://twitter.com/anisdrs
What’s the current update about yourself?
I had just finished my foundation programme and I am about to start my first year degree. To be honest, engineering isn’t really my thing but since I (not to be cocky but) get good results, it’s natural that my family push me towards this.
So right now I am just doing my best to maintain my scores but at the same time I try to spare time to indulge myself in my interests. Because despite having to take up something that isn’t my cup of tea, I wouldn’t want to lose my colours. So right now, I am striving to have the best of both worlds.
Describe your personal style in THREE words
Easy to wear
Less or more?
Less, of course! I always go for the “effortlessly stylish” look because I spend most of my time on campus. So I would want to be comfortable yet look like I’m ballin’ hahaha
What do you wear on lazy days?
I either pair up some oversized shirt/sweater with skinny jeans (or I wear ripped jeans for some edge) or I go for a fitted shirt with loose pants. Easy! Yet pretty and comfortable.
Who’s your style icon?
I don’t think I have a specific icon, but I enjoy watching the people around me; how they style their clothes and be creative about it. For me, I just go with what I think is pretty and would match with each other.
How do you stay up to date with fashion?
Instagram! I enjoy the “explore” section of the app because I can see various styles and fashion, from so many different people!
What do you think about denim over denim?
Gosh, I wish I could pull it off but I have always been so scared! I think with the right cutting and right shade (?) of denim, it could totally be bomb. I pray that the day I would be daring enough to wear it will come.
Sneakers, flats or heels kinda girl?
Sneakers (on most days)! I actually enjoy collecting sneakers and I have a dream to have a room full of it one day. Right now my collection consist of mostly Nike and Adidas but I want to collect other brands too! But on days where I feel like dolling up, heels are the way to go!
What’s your style philosophy?
Wear something that can accentuate your proportion. For example, I wear baggy clothes with skinny jeans to make my legs look slimmer. Wear crop tops to elongate your legs.
If you’re wearing looser pants, pair it with a fitted shirt so that your outfit wouldn’t look too heavy. My top and bottom are always contrary to the other. If my top is loose then I’ll pair it with some jeggings. And vice versa.
What’s a fashion trend that can never let you down?
My usual “lazy day” style!
Do you see makeup as part of fashion?
I see make up as something to boost my confidence. Some might say, “you should just accept yourself the way you are” or “you don’t need make up” and I’m always down for some self-loving action but to me make up is something to enhance my beauty.
I don’t wear make up because I hate the way that I look but I wear it because it makes me look more radiant and lively.
Which celebrities have the best style to you?
I don’t really keep up with celebrities but I like Miley Cyrus’s style. Now that she has gone back to her country roots, I think she looks comfortable; like she’s in her own skin. And that makes her look beautiful.
Monochrome or colour blocking?
I thought I wore a lot of colours but my wardrobe tells me otherwise. I wear a lot of white, grey and black.
Even though I look for colours when I shop, I always end up going for those three. So yeap, this girl is a sucker for monochrome.
Who is the most fashionable woman that you know?
I personally *adore* the instagrammer, Hannah Daniah’s style.
What’s your favourite thing to wear?
A sweater I bought from a thrift shop. Honestly it is best thing to wear, ever.
It’s comfortable, I can dress it up, dress it down. I would wear it every day but I hate repeating outfits so I can’t do that ☹
Accessories you can’t live without?
It has become a habit that I wear a watch, but I can still live even without it hahaha
Are you afraid of wearing an all-white outfit?
God yes, kinda. Sorta. I have been wanting to try an all-white outfit but never really had the occasion to.
What are the FIVE things that you must have in your bag?
I actually don’t carry a bag most of the time.
Most of the time I would only carry my purse and phone. Hhahaha but when I do that’s because I need to bring a lot of stuffs and that would be my powerbank, lipsticks and body mist!
What’s the priciest thing you ever splurge on?
I bought an Old Skool Vans just to get it customised. And the total came out to be around RM400+ and that’s quite a lot of money considering the fact that I don’t have a line of income and that’s just the money I’ve been saving up hahaha
If you have to wear ONE thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I’m gonna stay loyal to my sweater and jeans duo!
Which fashion trend that will never be out of style?
Polka dots or stripes?
Stripes all the way! Vertical ones!
What are you currently following in the fashion industry (brand, news, model career, etc)
Since I spend a lot of time on Instagram, I notice what the current hype is. So instead of specifically following a brand or news, I keep myself updated with the current trend.
What do you like besides fashion?
I think of myself of someone who wants to try a lot of things and I want to enjoy a lot of things. But on top of it all I enjoy photography and I love singing.
Your favourite apparel?
Baggy shirts and skinny jeans!
What kind of style that you’re least confident about?
A style like Yuna’s. I respect her for having the confidence!
What’s your favourite fashion brand?
I love shopping at Monki and H&M!
Who’s your biggest influence when it comes to fashion?
I would say just the people I see every day. I take note of the things that catch my eyes and that gives me an idea on how to style myself.
Name THREE things you can’t live without?
My phone, powerbank and charger cable. I am always on my phone that I don’t know if that should be a good thing or not.
When did you first involve in fashion?
I would say I started to care about what I wear when I was around 15 or 16. I didn’t think that I wasn’t stylish back then but I was really, really sloppy hahaha.
I think it started when my sister forced me to wear something that I didn’t really like at first. But as time went by I started to love the style and it got me where I am today ☺
