STYLE GURU BIO: Sydney Specht

My name is Sydney and I am so excited to join the CollegeFashionista team this semester! I am a senior at Oklahoma State University majoring in Strategic Communications. I cannot wait to showcase the diverse style found on the OSU campus and show you what us Cowboys are all about.

I realized how much I love fashion when I was very young. My sister and I would always play dress us at my grandma’s house and put on fashion shows for her. I could not wait to get over to her house so I could attempt to walk in her heels and put together a runway-worthy (grandma’s living room) outfit.

My style may have changed a little since then, but I still have the same motto: clothing is a way to express yourself without saying a word. I try to live by this every day. I love mixing patterns and adding a little bit of boho to my look, but I will always stay loyal to my basics. I have a relatively small color palette that I stick to, but I cannot resist a pop of color, especially if it is a bold, unexpected lipstick.

I am always down to try new trends and I absolutely love when old ones come back (yes, I own overalls and Birkenstocks). I am a sucker for a cozy white T-shirt and anything leather.

Check back each week to see the Fashionistas/os I discover on the OSU campus. I can’t wait to be inspired by their looks, and hopefully inspire you all along the way as well.
