Junior Taryn Hallum, a dancer and musical theater enthusiast, has developed a unique style throughout her 3 years at Burlingame.
Growing up, she was strongly influenced by her sister’s impeccable fashion sense. She not only used her sister’s wardrobe as inspiration but also would borrow a few pieces every so often.
“My style definitely mirrors hers in some aspects,” Hallum said. “But I am growing into my own skin and starting to wear stuff that [my sister] would not normally buy.”
Now that her sister is in college, Hallum has begun to define herself as a minimalist. While gravitating towards neutral colors, she has found a rhythm of wearing a basic top and selecting matching shoes.
“Jeans with a tighter shirt are a classic combo,” Hallum said. “Even though I like to wear jackets, I try not to wear baggy clothes too often.”
Her looks typically center around one piece of clothing. However, she loves to make things fun by shopping for special occasions. Whether it be hand-me-downs from her sister or thrifted items from Plato’s Closet, she emphasized that she loves wearing eccentric clothes everyday.
“Wearing something I like makes me feel confident and energized,” Hallum said. “Sometimes when I am feeling unmotivated, wearing an outfit that I am excited about helps me look forward to the day.”
