STYLE GURU BIO: Lyndee Boyce

Hello, darlings! I’m back for another RAD semester! I had such a blast this summer being a Style Guru that I just had to stay on longer! This fall, however I’m also going to be a social media intern for CollegeFashionista, which means you’ll get to see even more from me!

Fashion has always been something that is incredibly important to me. My life literally revolves around it. I’m currently studying fashion design at Columbia College Chicago and working at Topshop as a personal shopping assistant. When I’m not at school, at my job or working on stuff for CollegeFashionista, I can be found reading the latest issues of Vogue, Elle, and Glamour while drinking a pumpkin white mocha, or working on my personal blog. I also enjoy watching endless reruns of Sex and the City. (Where are all my Carries at?)

In my opinion, having a great sense of style is indispensable. My personal style could be described as bold and over the top, but I really just like to have fun with fashion. What you’re wearing is the first thing people notice about you and shows people a glimpse of your personality. The last thing I want to be perceived as is boring, so I try to make my day-to-day outfits as exciting and fresh as I can. I love wearing anything with a fun pattern, especially a wide-legged pant because it’s a bit more unexpected than wearing a printed top with plain jeans. I keep the look light and playful with a simple cropped, black Bardot top which also keeps the outfit balanced. I hate to take away from the elegance of an off the shoulder neckline by wearing any sort of necklace, so I usually wear a great statement earring with it. I try to keep my hair pulled back to show the earrings off, but hate wearing my hair in a full on pony tail, so I opt for the ever so popular half-up, half-down trend. Last, I throw on my rings, which I never leave home without, and a couple bracelets, then my look for the day is complete.

I am really excited for what this fall will bring and look forward to seeing what my fellow Fashionistas create. I hope that throughout the semester I can give some inspiration to you, so stay tuned!
