Local girl Acacia Tsekenis has effortless style down to a fine art, with a wardrobe of staple basics, easy separates and that “cool girl” factor which is impossible to pin point but you just know it when you see it. A team member at Rebel Muse, an Instagram caption extraordinaire (don’t believe me? Have a scroll, how can one be so witty with just a few select words? sigh!) and with the sunniest disposition to grace the streets of ‘Berra, this girl is one to watch…
First up, what does “style” mean to you?
- Style to me is not really something I can describe. Style is you. Style is timeless, ageless. Style is what you choose to make of it. And the more we ignore the ‘unwritten rules’ of what not to wear, and making your style choices rely heavily on your age/ appearance – the better!
Summarise your style in 5 words…
- I’d say my personal style is simple and relaxed, with a touch of spice here and there. I love my jeans and wearing items that are oversized. My style has evolved so much since working at Rebel Muse the last 2 years. I’ve learnt to embrace everything and I have a certain love for every item that comes through that door.
Top 3 Items In your wardrobe?
Oh man, how do I CHOOSE.
- I have to say my pair of white Supergas – I wear them almost everyday, they last so long and go with everything!
- Bonnie Underwire Bra by Lonely Lingerie. Literally the comfiest thing, and it’s so, so pretty I can’t resist it.
- I’m cringing as I write this because it’s so hot, but lastly I’m going to say my leather jacket. Because it’s my best friend with any outfit.
What are you currently lusting after?
- Currently I’m lusting after the Balenciaga Knife Boot in black, of course. It’s so sharp and stunning, it must be mine.
Who/what inspires your style?
- Everyone inspires me! I love seeing men and women alike just go for gold when it comes to dressing themselves. I appreciate those who don’t care about the norms or that nice/ expensive pieces are not made for everyday wear – screw that!
Where can we find you in your spare time?
- It is very common for me to be on my bed hooking into my next Netflix binge. Or I’m munching on avo toast at some café around Canberra.
- I have to say I’ve never been much of a magazine reader, but I love my locals, HerCanberra and Leiden Magazine.
Heels or flats?
- Heels forevvvvveeeeerrrr!
Dresses or jeans?
- Jeans 100%
Leather or denim?
Red lip or nude lip?
- You know what, I love a red lip.
Most stylish space in Canberra?
- Easy, The Social Club! Just wanna live in there.
Ultimate Style Icon?
- I freaking love Pip Edwards. She is literally the coolest chick.
Favourite style quote?
- “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak” – Rachel Zoe
