Chic Natural Fashionista: Tamea

Welcome to another edition of Chic Natural Fashionistas! Today I'm featuring another beautiful woman with an amazing sense of style. Meet Tamea! This gorgeous naturalista is a wardrobe consultant and stylist in L.A with a personal sense of style that definitely has star appeal. She plays with layers, patterns, and colors in such a fashionable and unique way that I had no choice but to stop and take notice. See what makes her a complete and total Chic Naural Fashionista by reading below....

Nappturally Chic Jere: How would you describe your style? Does it fall under a particular category?

Tamea: I would describe my style to be modern bohemian chic. I don't have a particular style of dressing all the time but it will usually fall under one of those descriptions. I pretty much dress to how I am feeling on a day to day basis. That is probably one of the best parts of being natural is being able to show versatility with your style and not having to stick to one overall look. 

NCJ: I love the versatility that natural hair seems to unlock for so many! Do you have one fashion item, you can’t live without? Is there a piece that will always be included in your wardrobe? 

Tamea: I can't say that I have one fashion item I could not live without, but I do enjoy layers. That's probably one thing that will mainly be included in my wardrobe daily. Layers make me feel like my outfit of the day is complete. 

NCJ: I just love your layered combinations... Besides the use of layers, what is your secret to putting together such amazing and fashionable outfits?

Tamea: Putting together my outfits is a spontaneous effort. I feel as though the best outfits I have put together are those that I think of last minute. When I put too much time into my wardrobe it is almost as though I am trying too hard, and that is not the way fashion/style should be. Your style should reflect who you are as a person, as an individual. Like I say to most people, not all trends and styles are meant for everyone, what works for me may not work for you and vice versa.  

NCJ: So, Where are your favorite places to shop? What catches your eye when you shop?

Tamea: My favorite places to shop here in LA are areas I seem to stumble upon, whether it is thrifting or local boutiques. I enjoy finding pieces that are versatile and are able to be dressed up or down. I am not too heavy on trends because they fade so quickly, however I will throw a trendy piece in every now and again with classic staple pieces to give that extra pop to my attire. Most pieces that catch my eye are bold, colorful(depending on season) and great for layering. 

NCJ: Do you have a celebrity style icon? A person you draw inspiration from...

Tamea: If I had to choose a celebrity style icon I would say it's a cross between Solange, because she is not afraid to try new looks and styles, and Kimora Lee Simmons because she's always so chic and so fabulous no matter what the occasion may be. 

NCJ: Wow, it is so interesting that almost every one of my C.N.F's admired Solange Knowles as a style inspiration. I love her style as well! Hey Solange!! What is one fashion tip, you would like to leave my readers with?

Tamea: Style is not about what others are wearing, it's about what looks good on you, and what works for you. No matter what you choose to wear always exuberate confidence with every step you take, for the world is your runway. Walk like you mean it!

NCJ: Great advice Tamea!! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your style and fashion tips with us. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know a little bit more about you.
