We are very happy to announce our first winner for the #CDRFashionAwards is Chuck Brace! Chuck answered a few Q&A questions for us about his personal style, style inspiration and more!
Q1: How would you describe your personal style?
CB: I would describe my personal style as comfy classic. I love big hoodies and tees but still kick back in my chucks and blue jeans.
Q2: Where are your favorite places to shop and why?
CB: My favorite places to shop are PacSun and American eagle. I also enjoy a great Goodwill find every now and then. I think I enjoy shopping at those places because I can always find something that matches the mood I'm in.
Q3:How does your style help you express yourself?
CB: I would have to go with the comfy classic term again. It lets people know that I am a very laid back person, but I also enjoy to get dressed up every now and then.
Q4: What is your favorite trend of 2017 so far and why?
CB: My favorite trend so far in 2017 is denim everything. It's so 90s I love it! I think the entire 90s style is coming back and I'm real into that era of clothing.
Q5: What makes your personal style so unique?
CB: I always try to not wear the same things as everyone else. I to layer my tops and everyone knows I always rock my converse!
Q6: Who is your style inspiration and why?
CB: My style inspiration would have to be Matthew Noszka! He's a model from Pittsburgh who was discovered on Instagram. He wears classic blue jeans and white high-top chucks and I love that look!
Q7: In your opinion, how does style and individuality relate to the art of being you?
CB: You have to have confidence in what you wear and not really care what anyone thinks. If you like that bright pink shirt, then wear it! As long as you love it, then that's all that matters!
