Tallulah Willis' Style Changes With Her Moods & Hair
While many have found themselves on a habitual rotation of loungewear, sneakers, and the occasional pair of comfy jeans, Tallulah Willis' quarantine style has been a bit more unpredictable — and admittedly dependent on her hair. "My style is in constant motion," says the 26-year-old, who's spent the majority of this socially distant summer in Sun Valley, Idaho with her entire famous family, including mother Demi Moore and father Bruce Willis. "It’s completely dictated by mood, by sense of self, and sometimes (to be honest) wherever my hair is at."
Most recently, 'where it's at' has been a short buzz cut — a drastic hair change Willis had to make due to too much bleach. "But with these hair changes always comes a new window to try a different vibe," she says in an email interview with The Zoe Report. "Right now I’m in a very femme/girly phase. I don’t think I’ve even attempted to slap on a pair of denim in months."
In addition to her hair, Willis' current style could also be tied to the young designer's new clothing brand Wyllis. Made with comfort and self-expression in mind, the label touts items like colorful Hawaiian shirts, breezy sundresses, and vintage-inspired sandals. There's also a strong advocacy component: With t-shirts sporting statements like "Fun Times At Last" and "Empathy" and the numbers to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline and the National Alliance on Mental Illness Helpline tagged inside each garment, Wyllis makes a strong play for mental health awareness, a topic near and dear to the founder's heart.
In fact, Willis herself is very candid about her own experience with mental health issues and how it ties into her sense of self — and shapes her personal style. "Having a better relationship with my body is not a linear journey, so there are also days I feel the most safe in matching sweats or an oversized nightgown with cowboy boots," says Willis. "[...] I think that, for me, there always has to be one element of intention."
