STYLE GURU BIO: Shayna Silvers

Hi everyone! My name is Shayna Silvers and I am from Miami, Florida. This is my first semester with CollegeFashionista and I am so excited to join the Style Guru team. I am currently studying psychology and business at the University of Florida and will be entering my sophomore year this fall. Even though my major has absolutely nothing to do with fashion, writing about emerging trends and how to style them has always been a desire of mine.

My love for fashion began at a very young age. Not because I loved clothes and colors (which I did), but because my mom was a fashion designer. I grew up watching her sketch, sort fabric samples and create mood boards. Being able to visit her at work and watch how each of these components came together to form a cohesive collection is how I came to love fashion.

When I’m not doing school work or reading about the latest trends, you can probably find me at the gym. Working out is such a great stress reliever and allows me to start my day with clear head and a comfy pair of leggings. Another interest of mine is photography. Having the opportunity to use this skill to photograph the fashionable trendsetters around me is something I am really looking forward to as a style guru!

When it comes to my specific style, I am pretty open minded and am constantly trying new looks. I can’t wait to spend the next few months learning from those around me and sharing my style advice with you all. In these photos, I am wearing a denim button-down skirt and a white off-the-shoulder blouse. I accessorized with a beaded multicolor necklace, a vintage cigar box bag and a straw fedora.
