Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Kristia Franklin otherwise known as @MyRepeatOffender amazes us with her fashion-forward looks.
Kristia chose her Instagram name @MyRepeatOffender because as a university student she wanted to show others how to stay stylish on a budget. She can create 3 different looks using the same piece, just by mixing and matching!
Some Jamaican women don’t like to wear the same look twice, but Kristia’s savvy fashionista powers breathe new life into any outfit by making a few adjustments.
Campari’s Pop Style 2017 winner, Kristia is often tasked at styling memorable looks for clients: Miss Jamaica Universe 2014 Kaci Fennel, Miss Jamaica Universe 2017 Davina Bennett, model Jeneque Pinnock, publicist Alison Moss-Solomon, singer Sevana and many more but she also makes red-carpet-ready looks on her Instagram feed!
Her style is not run-of-the-mill as she never shies away from a bold colour, pattern, sequin, or stripe. Always experimenting, Kristia remains chic and always evolving. Her style could not be classified as trendy, as she doesn’t follow trends but her own unique voice through fashion.
Here are the seven most iconic fashion moments she’s made over the years.
Denim on Denim
Kristia loves reggae and dancehall music and is definitely channeling her inner dancehall queen in this head-to-toe denim look. This look is a nod to 90’s dancehall era where women dressed to make a statement in the dance with batty riders and colored wigs.
This white striped off-the-shoulder dress topped with a wide brim Fedora black hat, set in the modern backdrop of the swanky AC Hotel Marriot is unforgettable. Hats have become an important accessory and any woman wearing one usually makes a bold statement. Kristia often uses hats to show her confidence and unique style.
Graceful and Fly
Kristia looks majestic in this flowy flamenco-inspired lace dress with blue, yellow, and red stripes. Although she likes bright colours, Kristia will sometimes wear black usually combining it with a pop of colour or a bold stripe.
Pop of Leopard
One of Kristia’s favourite pastimes is traveling to exotic locations. This look was created specifically for meeting the elephants on a trip to Bali. This leopard print bodysuit really pops against the mauve outfit. The straw visor and on-trend round bag complete this majestic look.
Carnival is Woman
Kristia, like many Jamaican women, loves Carnival. Here’s her look back in 2019. The key to every Carnival look is the hair and makeup which she styles with a high ponytail.
Kristia loves an all-white ensemble but she always chooses textures to mix it up! Here is a new take on an all-white swimsuit look with a classic modern cape.
