She’s fabulous, friendly and fashionable – she’s Fouzia Hilton, blogger, foodie and makeup enthusiast. She knows a thing or two (actually way more) about looking good. We asked her to tell us more…
How would you describe your personal style?
My style is simple and effortless.
What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is about expressing your identity to the world. It is a constant presence in one’s life and as the times changes fashion changes.
What’s your favourite fashion trend of all time?
Personally my favourite fashion trend is the track pant. Before, track pants were just seen as sportswear and one would wear it with sneakers, but times have changed and now I rock a track pant with a blazer and heels. It creates an edgy but elegant look. It’s all about styling your outfit correctly.
Who is your style icon?
My style icon is Kim Kardashian.
What is the one fashion item that you loved as a teenager that you now cringe at?
The plastic tattoo chocker, which I absolutely loved as a teenager and wore practically every day and everywhere. When it came back into fashion it just made me cringe.
What, in your opinion, is the ultimate accessory?
The ultimate accessory would be a good pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses has saved my life so many times – there are days when I just don’t feel like wearing makeup when leaving the house and a good pair of sunglasses always does the trick!
Stilettos or block heels?
What’s your favourite colour?
What would you not be seen dead wearing?
If you had to choose 5 fives items of clothing to wear for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
- Black long-sleeve cocktail dress – From weddings to funerals to parties, it always works.
- Track pants – A track pant is my comfort zone. It’s great for everyday wear.
- Blazer – It’s my go-to item for business meetings.
- Black tank top – I cannot do without my black tank top. Dressed up or down, with my blazer, track pants or skinny pants, it always works.
- Black skinny pants – I can wear this to a coffee date, lunch or a meeting.
Do you ever wear hats?
Yes I do and I simply love a winter hat with a boot.
