What better way to arrive on campus for the upcoming back-to-school weeks in none other than schoolgirl attire? While some may argue this look is so '90s, I would like to argue that this internationally inspired outfit is girly, cute and very school appropriate.
I spotted today’s Fashionista and had to ask what inspired her outfit. She explained that she spent some time in Korea, so her trip was the inspiration behind her girly ensemble. I love how she paired knee-high socks with platform sandals. I have never seen this combination, so I was surprised to see how well they look together. Her pink and white polka-dot jumper dress gives this outfit the ultimate schoolgirl look.
When you consider wearing the schoolgirl look, remember that there are many possibilities to dress this trend up in a way that shows off and complements your personal style. Knee-high socks can be paired with two- or one-inch heels, wedges or flats. Instead of a jumper dress, try a high-waisted skirt with a button-up shirt. During the colder times of fall, top this look off with a preppy cardigan or blazer.
For those Fashionistas who are not ready to dive right into the schoolgirl look, start your outfit out with some of the basic preppy staples such as a jumper dress, cardigan, blazer, skirt or knee-high socks. Layer them up to acheive your back to school girl look.
