Keen Ability to Make Anything High-Fashion
From the denim jackets, cheetah prints, or solid colored jumpsuits, Mahalia knows how to turn something into nothing, making it look high fashion every time.
Her Chill is not Your Chill
When most people are relaxing, you see them in t-shirts, flip flops or cargo shorts, but not Mahalia. She can make a “chill-feel” look eye catching and fitting.
Borrows from Other Stylistic Cultures with Grace
Many struggle to recreate the style of other cultures without entering the gray area that is Cultural Appropriation. Mahalia manages to show homage while making any and every viewer yearn to know the origin of the look she created.
Rough Day, No Problem
While most of us find ourselves in gray sweats during a rough day, Mahalia manages to body the color wheel and express her feelings while still managing to catch eyes with her bright and subtle style.
The Old-School is Mahalia's Second Period Class
It’s one thing to study and admire the past, but it’s another to make it look like your own. There aren't many young queens bringing old-school back like Mahalia.
Dirty Sneakers, Still Clean
It’s safe to say that Mahalia’s style is elite, but one must admire her ability to make pieces that aren’t ideal look to die for. Dirty Sneakers? No Problem. Khaki Jumpsuits in 2020? Too Easy.
