Paige Absher, a senior at Franklin Academy in Wake Forest, likes to draw characters in fashionable outfits. At 6 feet 3 inches tall, however, getting a stylish look for herself can be a challenge.
For one look, which emphasizes Paige’s long legs, we paired a Tulip Flared skirt with tights and ankle boots and then created one line from shoulder to toe with a color-blocked Kokoon Second Base top. For second, stylish look, we chose tights and ballet flats to go with a horizontal-striped Kokoon Sharpie skirt. Pairing the skirt with textured Big Easy sweat coat provided contrast.
Katy Piper of Mitchell’s Academy brightened Paige’s dark auburn hair to flatter her complexion, and colored the pieces that frame her face a distinctive fuschia-pink. A trim gave her style a sharper shape. Makeup artist Allie Daniel smoothed out her complexion with foundation and used eyeshadow, blush and lipstick to provide polish. Stephanie Vagasits did the manicure.
