Thanks to JCPenney for sponsoring this exclusive Niki and Gabi Interview!
JCPenney is excited to sponsor Fullscreen Live’s annual “Girls Night In” national tour which features some of YouTube’s top fashion and lifestyle gurus, including Niki & Gaby!
Niki & Gabi were recently at the JCPenney store at Southcenter Mall discussing fashion trends and showcasing their favorite back-to-style looks.
We had the chance to have a few of our questions answered!
What are your favorite back to school fashion trends this year?
Niki: In middle school we had a uniform so once we got to high school and were able to express ourselves it was so amazing. You can do this really great with denim. You can DIY a great pair of denim with some cool patches, or pins to make them unique, personal and so you! In fact, JCPenney is partnering with the Y this back-to-school season and for each pair of Arizona Jeans sold until September 2, JCPenney will donate $1 to support the YMCA’s academic achievement programs (up to $250,000). A really fun way to feel good about back-to-school shopping!
What do you say to a friend who is doing a major fashion don’t?
Gabi: It’s always good to take fashion risks but sometimes trends don’t go as planned. When it is your friend who is making a fashion disaster instead of telling them that they are not pulling off the trend it is better to offer a suggestion to help.
Niki: Maybe it’s adding or removing an accessory, or adjusting the fit on a pair of pants. Be there to help, when your friends look good, you look good!
Do you have suggestions for what to wear when going from school to an event when there is no time to change?
Gabi: Always have an emergency pair of shoes in your locker! It’s so simple to swap into them before you run out of the school to your event! If you don’t have room in your locker toss a great accessory in your bag – I’m are obsessed with chokers! This is a quick way to update your outfit instantly making it chic and cool.
What are your must have accessories for back to school? Niki: You always need a great bag to carry your books from class to class.
Gabi: But that doesn’t mean you need to get a boring bag, get one that stands out it’s all about celebrating and embracing your personal flair and expressing who you are through style. JCPenney has so many great pieces that are so on-trend but designed to fit every lifestyle, everyone with an authentic sense of confidence and personal style.
