I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in Florida we're gearing up to head back to school next week. There's a buzz in the air, an anticipation to return to those gossip-filled halls so thick you can almost taste it. While parents run frenzied through the big box stores with mile-long supply lists to fill, the teens are hitting the malls in search of that perfect back to school wardrobe.
This past week I got to have this experience with my brother -- and fashion is oh so important. You've got to get it right from the start or you're doomed. At least, that's what he says. ;) So what are the kids wearing this year? I'll tell you one thing, high school style sure has changed since I was there...
There seems to be a throwback trend yet again this year, but this one is a little on the softer side:
Lots of polka dots and plaids:
According to Elle, it's all about the tights and the floral prints:
And, guys, these aren't the Nikes of our childhood:
Also, apart from what the Old Navy ads are spewing, skinny jeans still seem to be the "in" jean for the fall, and the more distressed, the better.
The point here, guys? Pay attention to what you're dressing your characters in. Trendy isn't what it used to be, and it is ever changing.
