A whole new generation is coming up dapper and 16-year-old Shereen Jenkins is here to prove it – OUT and proud with a new Seven Days of Dapper. Here’s Shereen’s stats:
I’m Shereen Jenkins, 16. Dancing is my passion and I’ve been doing it for 4 years, self taught and never had lessons. I hope to find a studio soon to expand my choreography. I refuse to stop growing as a dancer. Getting noticed and becoming big would be a dream come true. I run indoor track in the spring as well. If I could find the right agency, modeling has also always been on my mind. At some point in my life I’d like to move to New York; it’s so full of opportunities.
Shereen’s impressive dance moves
I’ve always had a great interest in style. I love putting together clothes that make people say, “That’s dope,” so I get creative with everything I wear. I’m never afraid to switch things up a bit.
Day 1: Stay Swell
Outfit Details: Dress up at school, without wearing a dress. Keeping a clean look with a dope twist.
Day 3: It’s a party, It’s a party, it’s a party, it’s a partaayyy!
Outfit Details: I’d wear this to any summer party, while jeans are usually too warm for summer, the open jean vest with no shirt balances everything out! I’m a dancer so I have to be able to stay cool while looking good.
Outfit Details: I’d wear this any time I go places I’ve never been before. It gives a sense of unique comfortable style but at the same time holding everything together in a way that clicks. People will admire the risks you’ve taken with your outfit.
Hat: My grandpa gave it to me. Shirt: $15, Old navy. Jeans: $25, Old Navy. Boots: $90, Aldo. Plaid button-up: My mom’s!
Day 7: Street Smart
Outfit Details: Not too much and not too little. This is a casual, everyday outfit.
