Street Style, Everyday style Mickayla Zinsli: Practical with a little spunk

Email

Whether or not she’s interested in fashion, Mickayla Zinsli, of Grand Forks, knows how to style an outfit.

For a laidback day at work, Zinsli wore a button-up shirt under a gray sweater. She paired the tops with blue jeans and light brown boots. A beautiful mint statement necklace topped it off for a casual everyday look.

Zinsli, who works at the Center of Innovation, was nominated for street style by her co-worker Celia Rosencrans.

Rosencrans said, “Mickayla puts herself together so well using old and new fashion… it stands out and works for her because she has that air of confidence about herself.”

Zinsli’s style confidence comes from studying art. She developed a love for lines, colors, shapes and patterns, which is now reflected in her style. She channels style celeb Zooey Deschanel with funky, yet practical looks, often donning tights, a skirt and sweater.

  •  How would you describe your every day style?

“Pretty simple, straightforward, but yet maybe a little bit surprising to some people... I kind of jazz up stuff.”

  •  Where do you typically shop?

“I do love Gap. For dress clothes, The Limited has some nice stuff. Express… My favorite go-to place is ModCloth online. It’s more unique, and they kind of have a retro feel but also vintage.”

  •  How do you accessorize?

“Maybe one or two things put together… I definitely have a couple go-to necklaces… it all depends on the mood. Sometimes, I feel like wearing a certain pair of shoes, and I’ll build an outfit around those shoes… it just depends.”

  •  What’s your signature piece or color?

“Probably tans and browns… I don’t own anything black. I love the monochromatic tan, cream, whites, those colors. I don’t really do black.”

  •  What are you currently craving?

“I want a really cute tan trench coat with the big buttons that go down with a little sash… that’s kind of what I have my eyes on for now.”

Do you know someone who has impeccable fashion sense, someone who rocks athletic wear, someone who makes business attire fun or someone who’s always dressed to the nines for a night out? Nominate them for street style by emailing jmaki@gfherald.com
