School Girl Chic....

School Girl Chic....

Going beyond the Clueless cliches for fall 2012, school girl fashion channels everything from innocent peter pan collars to retro rockabilly rebellion. But it doesn't have to be one or the other: when the weather gets chilly school-inspired fashion mixes it up.

We are approaching School. And the fashion trend reveals its updates for the upcoming Autumn-Winter 2012-2013 fashion season, bringing trendbook, which features back to school styles. With models looking hot wearing rocking 1990's style inspired grunge ensembles, sporting denim looks, preppy oxfords, snakeskin sneakers, animal printed looks, lace up boots and amazing studded backpack

What Mad Men's Sally Draper might wear her senior year: scholarly oxford collars, checkered skirts, and high-heeled loafers with attitude aplenty. If schoolgirl-as-fashion gives you flashbacks of Alicia Silverstone circa Clueless in a tartan micro-mini and knee high socks. The upcoming autumn / winter season finds new ways to be inspired by schoolyard dressing that go beyond the usual cliches.

There’s no real limit to how you can inject a little bit of schoolgirl innocence – or mischievousness – into an outfit come A/W. But here are some of the elements that can kickstart a look, and ones you can easily mix into your wardrobe.  Then there’s the Gossip Girl generation. Again, boldly preppy is another vision of schoolyard chic but one that’s been explored thoroughly in recent years. School girl fashion bringing in an 80s edginess, mixing softness of prints with shiny and vibrant colours and textures  But away from the short skirts and socks there were plenty of outfits that were more to the elegant side, taking as rebellious school girl to the school dance after dark. And speaking of school dances

Swathed in sparkling costume jewels and bubblegum colours, they were senior students dressing as ladies but acting like girls.A varsity jacket and skinny cigarette pants can channel the rebelliousness of the rockabilly 50s, or the clean, modern and androgynous lines of the now. In 2012 the mix of inspirations is a huge one, and you don’t have to stick to replicating just one era – or one type of girl.
Since you don’t want to actually be mistaken for a schoolgirl skipping class, mix in some leather, statement jewellery, prints or vibrant colour to boldly differentiate.
