Moreno described her reasoning for mixing and matching so many different retailers“I really like American Apparel and Urban Outfitters but I also like to refer to Target a lot, [I live on a] college budget,” she said. She also underlined American Apparel in particular as being an entity which always has a “fresh look” while still working in the realm of wardrobe essentials.
When discussing essentials in her wardrobe, building an outfit from the bottom up emerged right from the get go. Moreno was adamant about the importance of shoes and denim as the foundation of any outfit and something which warrants an investment. “I definitely think boots are really important, and shoes because they always complete any type of outfit you have. I think having unique jeans, not just plain ones, also helps to complete any outfit too,” she said. Moreno added to the importance of denim by pointing out their durability. “I think that jeans are a good investment because I find myself wearing the same pair year after year because I don’t grow a lot. You can really wear them continuously.”
