FARGO - Rukia Santur expresses her style through color.

The 18-year-old West Fargo woman is Muslim and has to keep her look modest – nothing revealing or tight, headscarf always in place – but she’s found fashion freedom in color.

I spotted Santur at Caribou Coffee in a bold blue scarf and skirt, and I was impressed by her fashion knowledge and take on self-expression.

Describe your style. I like cute and casual style.

I have to have my head and body covered, so I’m always thinking of how I can do that with the clothes I like.

What are you wearing today? Everything’s from Wet Seal, Forever 21 or H&M.

If you could wear anything, what would it be? I like glamorous gowns, like the ones designed by Marchesa and Elie Saab.

They’re all designed to be a fairy tale.

Who’re your style icons? Blake Lively, Emma Stone, and I also like Kendall Jenner’s red-carpet style.

What’re your favorite things in your closet? My cardigans and scarves. I have more than 20 scarves.

If you could trade closets with anyone, who would it be? Dian Pelangi. She’s an Indonesian designer who creates beautiful jackets and other clothing.

Where do you get style inspiration? W Magazine, Pinterest, Instagram, Teen Vogue and blogs, like “Who What Wear.”

What’s your dream job? To own a fashion magazine.
