Style is a way of life for inner west high school student and fashion blogger Carissa Dragatogiannis.
The 16-year-old Rosebank College student is an aspiring journalist who tailors her approach to her well-heeled audience.
“I write about all different fashion, beauty, and lifestyle topics that are relatable for teenagers, which is why my blog is called The Teen Fashion Blogger,” Carissa said.
“I really try to engage with my audience by writing posts that I feel are relevant to teenage life, such as make-up for school, formal outfits, weekend wear, the latest in young adult fiction and party outfits.”
Carissa describes her own style as polished and trendy, and regards US television personalities Lauren Conrad and Olivia Palermo as her fashion icons.
“I like to make sure that I always look put together, no matter what the occasion,” Carissa said.
“Simple and versatile pieces can be dressed up or down depending on shoes and accessories – I like simple accessories such as delicate necklaces and thin silver or gold bracelets.”
As she cements herself as a youth style influencer, Carissa says hard work and commitment never goes out of fashion. She
