We were lucky again to be joined by someone from across the Atlantic! This time Sofia Coelho took some time to answer some quick questions. Living in Portgual her Instagram (@sofiamcoelho) shows off her amazing sense of fashion and some great advice! Be sure to follow her so you can stay up to date with everything she has going on!
When did your interest in fashion begin?
I think the major cause was when my grandma moved in with us when I was little. My grandma is one of those old ladies full with class and that simply doesn’t leave the house without being all dress up! Eheh I begun spending a lot of time with her and eventually we started going shopping together and I guess it slowly started growing on me!
How would you describe your personal style?
I don’t really know!! Ahah such a hard question! I just wear what I like to see myself with! J
Who really inspires you and why?
I think the person I identify most with is Gigi Hadid. I just love her style and she can really pull everything off!
What are the trends that you are currently coveting? Do you think you’ll love them next year?
Fur jackets, leather/vinyl pants and fishnets! I’ve always had loads of fur jackets and leather pants but I never thought about being so into fishnet socks as I am right now eheh I don’t really know if I’ll be this into them next year but I really hope so, they can turn any simple outfit into a more edgy one!
What is the one essential item in your wardrobe you couldn’t live without?
Fur jackets! They’re the best thing for the winter, you just throw on some jeans and that amazing fur coat and you’re ready for the day.
Favorite pair of shoes/boots?
My simple platform black ones. They go along with everything!
If you could give one piece of style advice, what would it be?
“If you like, wear it!”, that’s it! J
Where are your favorite places to shop?
I love shopping in Porto’s downtown (Baixa). As for shops my favorite ones are Zara, Mango and Pull & Bear definitely!
You have nearly 29k Instagram followers. That’s amazing! How did you grow your following?
I don’t really know how to explain really! I guess by posting everyday and sometimes being featured on other accounts with lots of followers! J
What’s your favorite thing to do in Porto?
To go to Porto’s downtown and just get lost on its magical streets!
