From rubbing shoulders (and snapping selfies) with former United States President Barack Obama to interviewing Miley Cyrus and Harry Styles at the Met Gala, popular YouTuber and comedian Liza Koshy is a class act of her own. As the petite and affable social media personality turns 25 today, we look back at five style and beauty moments that we loved seeing on “Lizzza” and reveal the on-trend items that’ll help you recreate her iconic looks.
Fashion throwback in tie-dye
Tie-dye fashion peaked during the start of the pandemic and even made its way onto the fashion runway during Dior’s Cruise 2021 show last July. Above, Liza rocked the retro-inspired look with plenty of spunk and attitude — she accessorised her co-ord with a pair of sky-high platform sandals, a sleek ponytail and gold hoops.
Steal Liza’s style: Tired of looking sloppy in your tie-dye twin set? Dress it up for a fun (and socially distanced) evening with the girls by opting for on-trend accessories just like Liza has. Topshop’s grey tie-dye joggers boast a cool, street-style aesthetic and they pair well with chunkier silver jewellery. Slip into ASOS Design’s platform heeled sandals for a little height boost.
Glossy neon goddess
Think #stayhome sweats, but make it fashion. Liza snapped a fresh shot of herself looking cosy and confident in her neon green hoodie to which she (not so) subtly encouraged her followers to vote during the 2020 United States presidential election. The Forbes 30 Under 30 alumna completed her get-up with her signature oversized gold hoops alongside glossy lids and lips.
Steal Liza’s style: The secret behind nailing this look lies in embracing makeup that’ll help you to create a radiant, healthy-looking complexion. After snuggling up in Nike’s Fleece Overhead Hoodie, reach for Gucci’s multi-use gel gloss, which is designed to provide a luminous effect with a reflective, dewy finish for your eyes, lips and cheeks.
Earning her stripes
Live life colourfully by dressing yourself in exuberant ensembles just like Liza has. Above, the actress struck a pose in her rainbow-striped turtleneck top and vibrant red trousers, which are by Alice & Olivia. This outfit is especially suitable for petite dressers as the top’s cropped length and the high-waisted cut of the bottoms help to visually lengthen the wearer’s frame.
Steal Liza’s style: For a look that’s more suitable for everyday wear, consider the outfit combination that we’ve put together above, which consists of a multicolour V neck cardigan from M Missoni and a pair of pleated shorts from Brunello Cucinelli. The former can be worn under a white tank for casual occasions or on its own with a statement gold necklace if you wish to show a little more skin, while the latter’s darted waist helps to define your midsection.
Acing aquamarine and burnt orange
Although Liza often shows her goofy, charismatic side on camera, she isn’t one to shy away from serving up more serious, artistic looks for the ‘gram too. In the stunning photo shared above, Liza created a monochromatic burnt orange moment with her makeup and wardrobe while adding a pop of aquamarine and turquoise to her look with a show-stopping manicure.
Steal Liza’s style: For a more staycation-ready alternative to Liza’s ensemble above, don Love, Bonito’s crinkled maxi dress, which bears a similar energetic orange hue and pleated effect. This number comes with functional side pockets and a side zip closure too for added comfort and convenience. On your nails, put a coat of O.P.I’s coastal sea green long wear polish for a chic touch of contrasting colour.
Dashing in Dior
In our opinion, one of Liza’s most defining fashion moments was when she attended Dior’s Autumn/Winter 2020 show at Paris Fashion Week 2020. The star shared an off-duty shot of herself looking effortlessly chic in a sweater and mini bag from the brand, and later suited up for her front-row seat in their timeless Dior Bar jacket (swipe the post above for more) and matching blush blouse and tulle skirt.
Steal Liza’s style: While we eagerly save up for Dior’s Bar jacket, we’re satiating our appetite for this feminine fit with a more wallet-friendly option, Her Velvet Vase’s cropped jacket. For mini moments of indulgence, consider splurging on Dior’s Tribales Earrings, which are made of white resin pearls and antique gold-finish metal.
