Style Profile...Cailin Klohk, Frankfurt

On saturday I met Cailin of Birds of a feather flock together in the streets of Frankfurt. So I thought it's time for another Style Profile. 

Describe your personal style…

I don’t think that you can define my style in just a few words, since it kind of changes every day. What I wear really depends on my mood, but I can say that I usually like my outfits to be feminine and preppy and to have a Vintage or Boho touch in them.

How did you first get interested in fashion and why is it important?

I guess I was always interested in fashion, even when I was just a little girl. I started reading fashion magazines when I was still quite young and in time my interest grew and grew, then I discovered fashion blogs and every since it has developed into my biggest passion.

Fashion is so important to me because it’s just what I enjoy the most, what I spend most of my time with and what I can see myself enjoying for the rest of my life.

Source of inspiration?

I get inspired by everything from editorials and collections to other bloggers, from streetstyles to art. Just about everything could inspire me.

Style icons?

There are so many people out there whose styles I adore but in the end, I just want to be myself. Of course, as I mentioned before I get inspired a lot by other people, but personally I don’t have one specific icon, and I don’t really think you should have one. I believe everybody should be themselves and you shouldn’t try to live up to another person too much.

Which fashion rule do you break / never break?

I don’t think there are any rules in fashion, at least not anymore! Which former rule hasn’t been broken by now? Fashion should be all about fun and expressing your personality, not about rules. And I bet if I’d name a “no-go” now, the same thing would be a “must-have” in a few years.

Most underrated item in womenswear?

That’s a tough one... hasn’t every item had their moment in the spotlight throughout the history of fashion? Take socks for instance, which could be named as underrated or unimportant, but when you think about it, they really had their comeback and you see socks in all colours and textures in sandals for example.

What would you say to someone seeking general fashion advice?

As I said before, always be yourself and don’t let anyone tell you what you should or shouldn’t wear. Your outfits should express your personality not theirs, so you should always wear what you feel most comfortable in and that’ll be the right choice for you. I admire people who have their own style and who look like they wear what they love, even if I wouldn’t wear it that way, I’d still call them well-dressed.

Favorite stores in Frankfurt?

There’s finally an amazing Vintage store in Frankfurt, it opened last week and I’d really recommend it! It’s called Epiphany and the address is Zeil 10.

Favorite place in Frankfurt?

The waterside of Frankfurt’s river, the Main.

Favorite café in your neighbourhood?

My favourite café in Frankfurt is theplacetobe.

What should I ask the next interview?

What’s the favourite piece in your closet and which piece would you really like to own?
