STYLE GURU BIO: Lyshsae Otarola

Hey there Fashionistas/os! Welcome to my Style Guru Page.

My name is Lyshsae. I was born in Costa Rica and moved to Irvine, California about ten years ago. I could not be more excited to be a Style Guru this semester. I’ve always appreciated the beauty of fashion and now I can finally share it with everyone.

My love for fashion goes back to when I was young when I would look forward to going in my mom’s closet wearing her shoes, dresses or anything I could get my hands on. As a college student, while trying to keep up with school work, one quote I definitely resonate with is “Stressed but well-dressed.” My undoubting love for fashion has led me to apply to become a Style Guru and finally channel my love for fashion.

My approach to style is very simple. Less is more, effortless-chic and a whole lot of simplicity; I’m a minimalist style lover. This means black, gray, white and nude are my go-to shades. Modern silhouettes and details brings a classic twist to minimalism but always with a little edge. Basics are chic, so working with them allows a lot of flexibility and is basically a blank canvas with unlimited possibilities. Living in California allows for me to wear very comfortable pieces that can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

All in all, I cannot be more excited to embark on this journey. Be sure to check out my posts each month for all things fashion!
