The Triangle: How would you describe your personal style?
Jack O’Connor: I would say my style is a mix between comfort and class. I won’t leave my apartment in sweatpants and flip-flops; but I have a busy schedule, so something relaxing is always optimal.
TT: Where do you grab your style inspiration ?
JO: My closet is a pretty even mix between old and new. I keep up with some trends as they come into retail stores, but I also have clothes from my grandfather’s attic that give me unique items. It’s kind of a cool challenge to mix the two.
TT: What are your must-haves for fall?
JO: My must-haves are a good pair of Chelsea boots, some solid crew neck sweatshirts, a few thermals for layering and a beanie or two for those colder nights.
TT: What are two pieces in your wardrobe that you can always rely on?
JO: I have one pair of maroon pants that are really comfortable, like sweatpants comfortable, but they are chinos, so those are my off-day go-to piece. My other is my watch collection. They [include] the time and date so at least one aspect of my life is always on track.
TT: What are some of your favorite places to shop?
JO: My favorite places are H&M, Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, American Apparel (when I have the money) and of course any thrift store.
TT: What is one fall trend you’re looking forward to wearing?
JO: Definitely my new Chelsea boots! They are set to arrive this week and I have a feeling I am going to be wearing them quite often.
TT: What’s your personal motto on style?
JO: My personal motto on style is dress the way you want, have fun, try new things and be a little bold. But over everything, be comfortable!
