Austin Closets: Nikisha Brunson
Urban Bush Babes co-founder and editor-in-chief, Nikisha Brunson, has the kind of laid-back style that turns the phrase “getting dressed” into “being dressed,” if that makes any sense. Her seven-day-wardrobe is a blend of easy pieces and muted tones, jumpsuits and kimonos: clothes that are meant to be lived in, lounged in and loved on but never fussed over.
That sensibility adds up: before working on her website, Brunson used to be a public school teacher — an on-your-feet, on-your-game job that requires attention to detail but also a disregard for overthinking. It’s here that a type of uniform begins to make sense. And now that she’s settled into Urban Bush Babes, this Austin, Texas local is sharing her focus with Folie, Brunson’s 100% natural apothecary line, handcrafted in small batches by her with a focus on hair and sensitive skin. So perhaps it’s here that the earthy colors and a down-to-basics aesthetic seem like an inherent part of her style.
And as for those perfect tangerine shoes? Oh, those are just cool. Not everything in fashion needs a peg.
