Today’s Weekly Fix Brante Flores was originally from San Diego, grew up in Cleveland and now lives in Los Angeles.

For today’s installment of “YOUR WEEKLY FIX: Style advice from a beautiful woman”, we are proud to feature model Brante’ Flores.

Brante’ was originally from San Diego, grew up in the suburbs of Cincinnati and now resides in sunny Los Angeles.

She currently does freelance modeling – mostly in the Tattoo industry – and occasionally dips her toes in some street clothing lines.

Despite her modeling career, Brante’ insists she lives a fairly normal life with support from her family.

“I’m your typical 21 year old who does social networking like crazy, but I always keep my head on straight to follow my dreams! My number one influence and support has to be my mother. Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Everyone has their support system, and I’m very much grateful for mine!”

Brante’ also loves her tattoos and getting new ones: “Having them has definitely become a way of life for me!  I love the industry and all the friends I’ve made along the way – I couldn’t have asked for a better community to be apart of and I’ve never felt so accepted in my life.”

She’s also really enjoyed with all the photographers she’s worked with in her career: “All the photographers I’ve worked with have made this job so much easier – especially my great friend, Scott Byler! He’s been such a great help in making me want to pursue this career, and also a great critic! I highly recommend working with him to any models in the Cleveland area!!”

Brante Flores loves her tattoos and the community in general - "I've never felt so accepted in my life."

Here’s Brante’s style advice for our readers:

My style advice for men would be to always dress the way you want to! Never let society’s ‘perfect image‘ influence how you should represent yourself!

Additionally, you should always be yourself because confidence is key!

A man with an edge, confidence and his own style has always been my main attraction. A man who carries his style well – and rocks it – is how a man should dress.

A pet peeve of mine would be men who just don’t care, because you should always care about your appearance. The way you represent yourself is your first impression whether it be for a job or even just meeting new friends!

Unfortunately in this day and age, everyone judges you based on what you’re wearing. So you always want to make sure you’re professional!

When it comes to dressing casually, make sure you’re rocking your own style! Never be like everyone else! BE YOU!
