STYLE GURU BIO: Tess Cvikota

Hey hey, Fashionistas and Fashionistos! I am so pumped to be a returning Style Guru this fall. I am a senior at DePaul University majoring in public relations and advertising with a concentration in marketing. Being involved with CollegeFashionista has been one of the best experiences; I can’t believe I am a senior!

My personal style has certainly evolved throughout my years in college. I am always seeking inspiration through the street style around Chicago. My style is influenced the most by model-off-duty looks as well as some of my favorite bloggers. I love SincerelyJules, SongOfStyle, GalMeetsGlam and ThriftsandThreads. Whether I am dressing for my internship or heading to class, you can find me in casual pieces. It is essential to master the art of “comfort chic” while having to run around the city. High-waisted jeans, white sneakers and a great moto jacket are staples in my closet. My go-to outfit formula is mixing feminine with edgier pieces. A lot of bohemian looks influence my personal style, as well. Anything effortless and versatile is what I tend to gravitate towards.

I am wearing a bodysuit that is fuss-free from Urban Outfitters. Bodysuits can be paired with almost anything. I chose laid-back boyfriend jeans and some gladiator lace-up sandals. I always think simplicity is the key when it comes to creating outfits.

I’m excited to share the #RAD college street style that the city of Chicago has to offer. Join me on CollegeFashionista to stay up to date this fall with some trendy articles!
