Stephanie Hernandez: Modern Mod & Classically Chic
The first words I ever uttered to Stephanie Hernandez ‘13 were “cute bag!” From there, I knew we would be fast friends. Hernandez takes an absolutely impeccable approach to style. With a little femininity, a spoonful of masculinity and a whole lot of mod, Hernandez simultaneously keeps me wary of new trends and reminds me of the old classics that I wish to rediscover.
Everything about Hernandez says picturesque. From her inability to want to impress others with her personal fashion choices, to her lovingly playful description of being the costume designer of her own life, Hernandez has mastered the art of getting into character by dressing the part. As for style icons, Hernandez quite possibly has too many to recall; however, the list ranges from Audrey Hepburn to Alexa Chung to Keith Richards and the Italian designers Dolce and Gabbana.
Hernandez admires women who look proper yet dangerous, and prefers sexy to sleazy, recounting: “There’s nothing tackier than someone in a deep V-bandage dress!” As for staple pieces, Hernandez and I agree on owning anything black. “Black is chic. You can add to it or leave it alone…it can go from day to night and still look badass.”
Along with black comes a good pair of heels, ankle boots and flats, as well as a signature accessory. “Right now, mine is a bow headband…it’s something people associate with me and makes any outfit uniquely mine.”
So, what would Hernandez covet in her dream closet? Everything from Dolce & Gabbana dresses to Chanel jackets, Kate Spade purses, Good Fellas-esque suits, leather shoes, and what girl could not resist lacy bras. Black, headbands and sexy galore make Hernandez one of the most stylish alumni that Pacific has ever seen.
