Style Profile: Young musician chooses trendy, adventurous looks

FARGO – Hannah Westerholm has a simple formula for dressing well.

The 17-year-old Fargo South High School graduate pairs an adventurous piece of clothing with an otherwise simple ensemble to create a look that’s both unique and fashionable.

I spotted the local folk musician (she goes by Hannah Jean and has videos on YouTube) downtown in a casual outfit that she topped off with an ultra-cool fedora.

Describe your style. Simple but trendy.

What are you wearing today? A Gap top and Mossimo pants that were thrifted, a hat from a friend and boots from DSW.

If you have to throw on an outfit quickly, what would you wear? I’d do crazy pants, a simple shirt and boots.

What does style mean to you? Style is what people are saying without saying anything. It enhances someone’s personality.
