Style icon: “My mother, Rosalie Caruso, because she’s always dressed beautifully. She can put together an outfit from T.J. Maxx or Marshalls and look like a million bucks.”

Personal style: “I’m pretty formal. I really love to get dressed up in beautiful clothes and wear them daily.”

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: “I like to wear jeans or leggings with boots and a colorful blazer, or a fabulous leather jacket—all from Etcetera.”


Go-to outfit for a Saturday night in the city: “I prefer to wear dresses when I go out, usually a black or colorful dress with a great pair of patterned tights. Whatever the dress, it’s always paired with my Christian Louboutin pumps.”

Must-have splurge: “I love to buy a new leather or suede jacket every year. They’re great statement pieces, and I like to update them annually.”
