STYLE GURU BIO: Sydney Helphenstine

Hello to all my Fashionistas/os! My name is Sydney Helphenstine, and I am currently a fashion merchandising major at Marymount University! This is my sophomore year at Marymount, and since I came here I have also decided to minor in business and fashion design. This is my second semester with CollegeFashionista, and I am so excited to be back writing for them again!

My college is located just outside of Washington D.C., which is very exciting for me since I grew up in such a rural part of Maryland. Being in a big city comes with so much inspiration for fashion and new trends. It’s definitely one of the perks of going to school here. Another perk is the amazing fashion program here at Marymount. Since I started my journey here, I have discovered how great the program is. We even have our own fashion show every year, which is great because it has been teaching me so much more about what it really takes to put on a prestigious show. I have always loved fashion, and it is a great experience being able to learn hands on how the fashion world works.

My style jumps around a lot, but it mainly consists of bohemian-chic pieces. I love playing around with all kinds of trends, as you can see here with my off-the-shoulder top—a huge trend this summer. I paired this top with some denim shorts and heels. I topped it off with a bucket bag. I really like wearing durable outfits that are comfortable for anything I have planned in my day. While this outfit was perfect for a brunch date with my friends, it was also lightweight and comfortable for the rest of my hot summer day!

I can’t wait to continue inspiring and spotting rad trends on the streets to share with you all!
