STYLE GURU BIO: Brandy Durst

Hey Fashionistas/os! My name is Brandy Durst and I am super ecstatic to be back for another semester as a Style Guru! I am going into my junior year here at Salisbury University on the lovely eastern shore of Maryland and am studying public relations.

I have always been inspired by individuals who express their uniqueness in creative ways that reflect their own personality, whether it be through fashion, music or art. Since getting my first camera at a young age, I have loved to photograph individuals’ fashion and talents as well as the beauty in nature and the joys that life holds.

My personal style varies from chic to grunge, but all my outfits mainly focus around three (or four) pieces: a cute shirt, comfortable pants, either gladiator sandals or Sperry Top-Siders and a simple necklace or choker. So it’s no surprise, for this look, that I chose to show off some of my new favorite pieces. The gray top I have on is super comfy and I love how it has the wrap detail on the back leading to the neckline. I chose to pair this amazing top with light wash denim shorts and black lace-up gladiator sandals. For accessories, a solid neutral color in any object, in my opinion, is perfect to continue the color scheme, so I accessorized with a black over-the-shoulder bag, sunglasses and to finish the look and show the shirt off even more, I wore my hair in a curly ponytail.

I believe everything happens for a reason and having faith that everything will work out has led me to live each day with a carefree and adventurous mindset. Thank you so much for reading a little bit about me! I am exited to share the local fashion trends and self-creativity around my campus with you all this upcoming semester!
