Looklyn: Meet Seerat, an influencer in the wild
In this installment of our street-style series, we meet a New York fashionista who mixes old items with new—and Dua Lipa with Bollywood
Street style isn’t necessarily the same thing as “fashion.” It’s … more personal. It’s rooted in self, an outward expression of attitude, vibe, swag, panache, aspiration, time and place. In this series, called Looklyn, we hold a mirror up to the borough to show us how we dress now … and what it tells us about who we are.
Here, photographer Johnny Cirillo introduces us to Seerat, that is, unless you haven’t already met.
Name: Seerat Saini
How do you identify?: Punjabi American (she/her)
Where are you heading?: NYC X Afterpay Fashion Week Event

About the fit: I love mixing new items with my closet staples. This classic oversized button down has been worn a million different ways! Today, it’s a canvas for a newer piece: my T Label bra! My gold necklace and bag are both Juicy Couture pieces from middle school. I really enjoy pulling a look out from the archives! If I really enjoy a piece; I always take care of it and leave it in a special place until it’s time to bring it back.
Thoughts on life: We are all the universe pretending to be individuals! So when you meet yourself over and over, remember to be kind and give grace.
