STYLE GURU BIO: Sydney Sallee

Hi, My name is Sydney Sallee and I’m so excited to begin my first semester with CollegeFashionista! I am a freshman at Baldwin Wallace University studying both public relations and broadcasting and mass communications.

Fashion has played a major role in my life for as long as I can remember. I am proudly overdressed 90 percent of the time. My go-to “uniform” for class is a skater skirt, bomber jacket, choker, and boots. However, I love tennis shoes and sometimes Adidas, a graphic T-shirt, and jeans are the move. My fashion inspirations include Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Cara Delevingne, and Ariana Grande.

Over the summer, I worked as a stylist at a retail store. I learned a lot about the fashion industry by working in retail and I am thankful for my small experience in the industry. The best part about the job was assisting customers in creating outfits by giving my own opinions combined with implementing their personal style into the look.

I think beauty and fashion go hand in hand. I love watching beauty gurus on YouTube and trying out different beauty looks. Currently, my favorite makeup trends are highlights and matte lipstick.

When I’m not in class, I am usually practicing singing, playing ukulele, working out, watching beauty videos on YouTube, reading, writing, taking photos, or working on my Instagram aesthetic.

For this look, I contrasted my feminine pink bomber jacket with a black skater skirt. I contrasted the accessories as well by sporting both a tattoo choker and a rose gold Micheal Kors watch. Since it’s always cold in Ohio, I wore tights and Dr. Martens to keep warm and complete the look.

I am so excited to be involved with CollegeFashionista this semester and I can’t wait to broaden my sense of style this semester!
