Style Guru Bio: Carissa DeFilippo

Everyone has their own style that defines them. Fashion is a great outlet to express your self. It’s such a beautiful thing to be able to do: to tell a story through what you wear. You can express your mood, your favorite color, or even show your favorite band.

I am currently at senior studying Fabric Styling at the Fashion Institute of Technology about to embark on my final semester of college. The journey has been incredible. Being able to study fashion and the trends that we see season after season has been an incredible experience. I was born and raised in New York City and feel truly lucky to call it home. I am constantly looking around the streets to get inspiration for new and exciting fashion trends. Fashion Blogs are a great way to get inspiration but I think the best inspiration comes from your peers around you. Everyone has their own creative mind, and we all see things differently.

My style is a mix of bohemian feminine pieces and classics such as tailored blazers and chinos. Two items I could never live without would be my white converse and my YSL Arty Coral ring. I love everything about fashion, and appreciate all the different trends out there.

Having the opportunity to be a Style Guru is very exciting for me. Since I love researching trends and street style this is the perfect experience to be able to share with readers the amazing style that is walking around the streets of FIT. “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”-Coco Chanel
