What outfits are you comfortable in? You know those ones that make you feel on top of the world, you want to take a walk down 5th Avenue like Carrie (if you are into Sex and the City).

Chatting with seasoned stylist Doyin Akintunde who is also Chief Stylist at DivaNista gave me a glimpse into their world of styling. It starts with a clear personality definition. DivaNista is a retail brand for the stylish and timeless woman, so naturally they stock only timeless pieces. Doyin defines the DivaNista woman as bold, assertive and fearless.

DivaNista exists solely to revamp our customers’ entire style by providing them with an upscale selection of quality, distinctive, affordable, fashionable and timeless pieces’. You know the ‘who wore it better’ segment on fashion police? Doyin explains it as a style personality effect, ‘Fashion is what you wear. Style is how you wear it. Two people can wear the exact same outfit but two of them can end up looking totally different. What sets them apart, is their “Style Personality”.
