West Side Story: What motivates you to get up and ready in the morning?
Sidney Kout: I pick my outfits out every morning the morning before so I wake up and it’s right there, ready for me.
WSS: Are there ever days you just want to wear sweatpants, how do you stop yourself from doing so?
SK: I actually just bought my first pair of sweatpants, I didn’t own any before then. But no, I would never wear sweatpants to school, just no.
WSS: Who inspires your fashion sense?
Sidney Kout: My mom and my sister, they’re both very fashionable so we share our closets.
WSS: Would you like to do something in the fashion industry when you grow up?
SK: I think that would be cool, but I don’t see myself working with fashion and I don’t necessarily like all the fashion statements that are out there right now, so probably not.
WSS: Where are your favorite places to shop?
SK: I really like Madewell and Nordstrom, a lot of the stores are not in Iowa unfortunately. I shop online alot and get a bunch of clothing from my cousins and family in Dallas who know where to shop.
WSS: How would you describe your style?
SK: I would say it’s classy but comfy; I won’t wear something if I’m not comfortable in it. I think jeans are comfortable, I love jeans.
WSS: What is your favorite kind of clothing; like shirts, short, accessories, shoes, etc?
SK: I like cold weather clothing, with jeans and pants and sweaters. I do not like shorts. I hate wearing shorts.
WSS: What made you initially interested in fashion and when?
SK: I think I’ve always been fashionable, I guess my mom always put me in fashionable clothing when I was a child. She goes to work everyday in a cute outfit. I do think my fashion sense got a lot better when I went into Junior High, though.
WSS: What is your go to outfit?
SK: Jeans for sure with some grey booties and an oversized sweater.
WSS: What’s your favorite season to dress for?
SK: My favorite season is fall. You don’t have to wear a big jacket like in winter, and you aren’t hot all the time in summer.
WSS: Has your style changed at all over the years?
SK: Yes, I get a lot of my outfits from pinterest, so I think it changes every year and every season. It gets better each season, it definitely gets better each year.
