STYLE GURU BIO: Tyler Laurén Weatherly

Hello, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! I am Tyler Laurén and I am currently a senior at Hofstra University in New York. I am majoring in public relations with a minor in dance. Over the past few years, I have spent my time blending my various artistic passions with my academics. I am absolutely elated to be a Style Guru on campus during the summer semester!

Style and beauty have always been passions of mine. Since 2010, I have been running my own beauty and lifestyle blog, which has about 20,000 followers, and I want to turn my little hobby into something more meaningful and with more substance. I want to be more involved with what the beauty and lifestyle industries have to offer. As a public relations major, I really enjoy seeing and understanding what goes on behind the scenes of most everything and fashion is one of the many facets of the public relations industry that I wish to further explore.

If I were to attempt describe my style in one word, it would simply have to be two: New Yorker. My style is very structured and minimal, focusing the attention on the detail of each piece that I choose. When looking at my wardrobe, there is a recurring theme of neutrals; the tans, grays and black mimic the cement jungle that is New York. Although the color pallet is simple, both my style and my city are far from ordinary or boring. My style is where form intersects with functionality and practicality. New York is quintessentially me.

Interested in drawing inspiration from my look?  I recommend gold accent rings, a feminine watch, black denim and a frilled poplin blouse.
