WHAT TO WEAR: Class

WHAT TO WEAR: Class

Bowling for Soup sings about a mom who is obsessed with 1980s pop culture and her kids who tell her that she’s uncool. We all will love the song forever, but there’s just one thing I want to comment on: trends from 1985 are most definitely cool! Band tees were a staple piece in any 1970-1990 fashionista’s wardrobe and never really went out of style.

Tops like this are perfect for daily wear. When you’re up and about for those delightful morning summer classes, a pair of denim shorts can go with any color and can be thrown on quickly in the morning and remain comfortable all day. This fashionista is sporting a pair of classic high-waisted denim shorts with the slight bit of distress going right along with the punk theme. Her western-style hat allows her to get some shade from the sun in style. As a final touch, she added a pair of frilly socks (like your mom made your wear on Easter when you were little) to give the outfit a feminine touch. With a grunge yet girly outfit like this one, you will undoubtedly be the raddest chick in the classroom!

One Simple Change: The best part about a vintage piece like this is that they are seriously versatile. Regardless of any holes, bleached details or level of distress a tee might have, adding a classy maxi skirt or a pair of lace-up heels can “chic up” the shirt for a night out on the town. You will be sure to turn some heads with your eclectic sense of style.
