You wish you were: Arabyrd

One-half of DJ duo Twinkies and artist Arafah Edruce—known as Arabyrd—has been on our radar for sometime now, and it’s not only for her musical talent. Her nonchalantly cool style is not one to be missed too—just scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll get why. From looking ultra-glam in a flowy kaftan to street-casual athleisure looks, trust us when we say that she nails them all. As 2019 is coming to an end, we got in touch with the DJ on her thoughts on personal style and what she thinks about fashion trends as a whole.
