Sophisticated Style: Embracing Urban Fashion with a Touch of Extra

Welcome to The Highly Sophisticated, my name is Kela and I am going to take you on my journey where fashion meets urban sophistication and unique style. With roots in both the vibrant streets of New York City and the rich cultural scene of Pittsburgh, I've been raised to appreciate the fusion of elegance and urban flair. Join me as I share my journey of embracing individuality, drawing inspiration from the iconic RuPaul, and expressing my highly sophisticated style from head to toe.


A Tale of Two Cities:

Growing up in both New York City and Pittsburgh has given me a unique perspective on fashion. From the bustling streets of New York to the artistic vibe of Pittsburgh, I've been exposed to diverse fashion influences. The combination of these two cities has influenced my style, incorporating the cosmopolitan edge of New York with the artistic sensibilities of Pittsburgh.


Embracing Urban Sophistication:

Urban sophistication is the essence of my style. I believe that fashion is a way to express oneself and radiate confidence. By incorporating clean lines, tailored silhouettes, and high-quality fabrics, I create looks that exude elegance and refinement. From sleek, tailored pieces into my wardrobe, such as blazers, structured dresses, and high-quality denim. Mixing classic and contemporary styles allows me to create a unique look that exudes sophistication and urban flair, my wardrobe reflects a balance of timeless pieces and contemporary trends.


 From Head to Toe:

My commitment to style is not limited to clothing alone; it extends to every aspect of my appearance. Attention to detail is paramount, and I love to experiment with hairstyles, makeup, and accessories to complete my look. From sleek updos and bold lip colors to statement jewelry and meticulously chosen footwear, I believe that every element contributes to a cohesive and polished ensemble.


Inspiration from RuPaul:

RuPaul's influence on my fashion journey cannot be overstated. As an icon of self-expression and individuality, RuPaul has taught me to celebrate my uniqueness and fearlessly embrace my style. His extravagant costumes, flawless makeup, and unapologetic attitude have inspired me to push boundaries and be unafraid to stand out from the crowd. RuPaul's mantra, "You're born naked, and the rest is drag," serves as a reminder to embrace fashion as a form of self-expression and empowerment.


Being Extra and Highly Sophisticated:

Sophistication and being extra are not mutually exclusive. I believe that a highly sophisticated style can incorporate elements of boldness and extravagance. Whether it's through vibrant color choices, or eclectic patterns, I strive to make a statement with my fashion choices. Embracing the concept of "more is more," I love experimenting with layering, mixing patterns, and incorporating unexpected elements into my outfits. Being extra is not just about the clothes; it's a mindset that allows me to celebrate my individuality and express myself authentically. I elevate my sophisticated looks and showcase my unique personality.

Fashion is an art form that allows us to express our individuality and embrace our true selves. As a fashion enthusiast from both New York City and Pittsburgh, I've cultivated a style that reflects urban sophistication with a touch of extra. Inspired by RuPaul's fearless self-expression, I've learned to celebrate my uniqueness and create looks that embody elegance and refinement. Through this blog, I hope to inspire others to embrace their own sophisticated style, fearlessly express themselves through fashion, and appreciate the fusion of urban and refined aesthetics.
