Your City, Your Style: Detroit Edition with Ruma

Style Blogger & Detroiter Ruma of @Amurvruma channels her city’s influence on her style and owning it. The Ahfif Team met up with Ruma at ISNA this year and got to know her down to earth personality and about keeping it real while being in the spotlight. Get to know her too through this “Your City, Your Style” feature…

How does your city influence your style?

The city I grew up in is very eclectic as well as rough around the edges. Hence the whole Detroit vs Everybody ordeal. I’m very colourful and animated like my city, love a splash of color. The city allows me to channel my inner tomboy all the while being boho-chic.

What’s the best piece of style advice you’ve been given?

Style is an expression of your individuality. You don’t need a vogue magazine to tell you how to dress. You’re unique, own it.

Tell us what you love the most about your favorite Ahfif item?

I love Ahfif‘s brand because of the asthetics portrayed. Very strong and ethereal at the same time. This speaks for the items as well. My favorite piece was the Ark & Co Wrap Around Dress: it’s the perfect go-to dress for a formal event. Extremely comfortable and definitely makes a statement.

Your City, Your Style: NYC Edition with Sobi

Sobi makes a strong case for effortless looks, her best style advice and the miracle shirt – read up on what inspires her!

How does your city influence your style?
NYC: The concrete jungle. I think those words itself inspire my style. It’s fused with so many different people of different cultures and ethnicities, making the city as urban as it gets. Needless to say, there’s never a dry moment for me when strolling the streets. There’s always something new and exciting to see and do, which is exactly what fashion is all about, becoming inspired by everything exciting that surrounds us.

What’s the best piece of style advice you’ve been given?
Nothing, I think I’ve made a solid effort to give myself my own style advice. And by my own style advice I mean: I wear whatever feels right and good, it’s as simple as that. Oh and, when in doubt: wear black, that’s always the better option.

Tell us what you love most about your favorite Ahfif item?

My favorite Ahfif item is definitely the Grey Slit Top I recently rocked at ISNA 2015. I’m all about comfort, versatility, and little effort needed to make me look even a tad put together and that slit top hit exactly those three requirements for me. I’ve recently became rather cautious when adding new things to my wardrobe because I’ve found that I tend to wear my most comfortable and versatile pieces excessively while the other two thirds of my closet picks up dust before hitting the donation pile. The top can be paired with skinnies, culottes, a bandage maxi skirt, a leather jacket etc. Four different looks with the same top, miracle shirt am I right?!
