Style Sense: Fallon Edwards

Age: 32

Occupation: Supervisor at The Fresh Market

Fallon Edwards has a laissez-faire outlook when it comes to her style: she enters her closet, throws on anything, and walks out fearlessly. Her spunky style is a reflection of her outside-of-the-box personality, punctuated with bright patterns and natural jewelry. 


My style is: Colorful, free-spirited, loving… I don’t like to fit in. There’s nothing wrong with people who fit in, but I want to be an alien. When I was a kid, I was never allowed to wear what I wanted. Everything had to match and that didn’t feel right to me. So I said, “When I get older, I’ll do what I want to do.”


My sense of style began: It probably started intensely about two years ago when I started my spiritual journey. I opened up more; I got out of the box that I was living in. I realized that there was no box, so then I was able to express myself however I wanted to. 


I draw inspiration from: The more colors and the more patterns, the better. 


The celebrities/icons that have influenced my style: Willow Smith. It’s funny because she’s so much younger than me, but she is a great inspiration. I love her. 


The three must-haves in my wardrobe: Bracelets, earrings, and my dashikis. 


Local stores I like to shop at are: 632 Main is one of my favorites. Loonar Station— they have clothing and I’ve gotten a few purses from there. I also like vintage [items], so I go to the Salvation Army and Goodwill.
