The sunglasses, belts, statement earrings and her scrunchies for her high ponytails. This is DJ MIMI her own noticeable brand look! You will not find any other DJ like her ! That is why we will be following her for her fans and fashion fans. So, you can re-create her look.
Can you describe yourself ?
I always find that very difficult to say anything about myself … A few things that I know from myself is: I am spiritual,
persistent, creative, sensitive / emotional, a pleaser, independent, goofy, loyal and helpful. Also I have a lot of empathy for others, I always wanna help, that on regular base I tend to forget myself. My lesser points is: Perfectionist, quickly irritated but forget it quickly .. temperamental, lets just say my zodiac isn’t a RAM for nothing (wink).
How would you describe your style in terms of clothing?
A little bit of everything really. It depends on my mood and occasion. I love to walk around in oversized hoodies / jackets and sweat pants with a cap and sunglasses on. But there are definitely days when I rock my girly, classy dresses, fur coat ofcourse (faux) and thigh high boots! One time-period I love the most is the 90’s / 00’s look. It always has a dope vibe!
Has work as a DJ influenced your clothing style?
Not necessarily, I’ve always dressed like this. I do pay attention to what I wear during gigs. I am not too ‘naked’ because I don’t want the focus be drawn to my female appeal. The focus needs to stay on what I really came for. Unfortunately this is still a thing in the scene .. don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with a little ” sexy ” and ” femininity ” during a booking. Only I personally value the fact that it’s still about my talent and not about certain clothes that I wear. I make sure I always go fashionable, often comfy and classy to my gigs. I also like accessories, preferably a little extra like big Glasses or big jewelry, belts etc. (This of course depends on the occasion) Sometimes I also like to go very casual, because it’s comfortable.
What is your favorite clothing brand?
I shop a lot in different countries where I perform. I mix casual brands such as H&M and ZARA, Monki, Bershka etc. with a more expensive brands.
Who or what can sway your taste in clothes?
That can be very different! That can be a simple Instagram photo I see in my feed or a celebrity .. I often check Rihanna & Khloe Kardashian their feed sometimes, because they both have approximately the same length as me. That way I can see, if the style will look good on me due to my length.
Where do you shop or get most of your clothes?
ZARA, H&M, Bershka, Monki, PLT, Riverisland, Forever21, but I also have many collaborations with certain brands, which I wear often.
Is there a trend that you absolutely not take part off? If yes, which one?
I don’t really pay attention with the latest trends. I dress how I feel at that moment, it can vary from girly to urban, casual or sporty.
What do you want to express with your clothing style?
That this is MIMI ! I Have several faces. Classy, sporty, girly all with an extra touch… Just MIMI 🙂
Has your clothing style changed in recent years?
No, not necessarily, I don’t see it. But maybe the people who knows me. Sees the changes over the years.
Through what do you follow the latest trends?
I think like everyone, Instagram and American influencers and celebs. These are my go to, to follow the latest trends.
What is your ‘go to’ outfit on a work night?
My go to outfit is always a black dress, oversized hoodie (dress) and I combine it with an over the knee boots and sneakers .. with a nice jacket. You can never go wrong with a black dress! hahaha
Do you choose your own clothes when you have to work or does someone else style you?
Yes, I usually dress myself. I know what I like and don’t like. I haven’t find the right person that can re-create my style combined with the latest trends. I also dress myself when I have a collab with a brand, if I feel its my look, then I wear it. And the most important person in my life my mother! She often gives advice on what I can and cannot wear. And usually she’s right!
What do you prefer to wear around the house ?
I love my Warm PJ’s with thick socks heheh 🙂 When your home, you just want to be comfortable after a long week of traveling and DJ gigs. Lay on the couch with a cup of hot tea. hahahaa 😉
