It is achieved not only through the clothes you wear, but through everything you adorn yourself with. It includes confidence, attitude and optimism too. In short, it is an extended part of one’s personality. Anything and everything can inspire your fashion sense. You just have to have an eye for it. So look around and let your creative side allow you stand out from the crowd. Here are some back-to-school styles to steal from your kids for the cheerful and colorful look.
1. Colored jeans
Do you remember when did you wear a colored jeans last? Probably, before you have left school. But this is one of the hottest trends right now. Every other celebrity is wearing one, so why are you lagging behind?
There are so many ways to team up bright denims with other clothes. Wear it the color-blocked way and stand out. For example, team up your green colored jeans with a sexy yellow top and wear stilettos is bright red. And if color-blocking is not your choice, then you can always stick to tonal shades and neutral colors any day. These colored jeans are available in array of colors like bright blue, green, red, purple. To turn your old basic colored jeans into new pairs, dye them in these vibrant colors. If you are bold enough, you can also go for bright yellow as yellow would enhance your fashion statement to a funkier level.
2. Borrow from the boys
You must have noticed how your school going daughter sneaks into her brother’s and boyfriend’s clothes. Go and get inspired from her. Let her wear the baggy jeans and shapeless jackets and you opt for the well-fitted menswear without sacrificing on your feminine form. Get them tailor-made and accentuate your shape. Shirts with menswear prints and fitted jackets and coats look fabulous. Enhance your feminine form by wearing a belt.
When it comes to lowers, go for well-fitted, slim-cut pants and team them up with something soft and sexy, like a sexy satin shirt and some standard jewelries.This would give you a girly vibe. Platinum jewelries and watches with large dials and broad chains/belts look way too awesome. To enhance your sexiness quotient, mix masculine and feminine elements together. For example, a leather jacket with a lace top would make you stand out.
To add some style, girls team their tank tops with cute vests. You better leave aside those crochet and overtly retro looks, and rather opt for menswear styles. Unbuttoned vests on fitted tees look fabulous. To have girly vibe, wear a unbuttoned denim vest over a white blouse. A tucked out longer shirt under a vest so that the hem line of the shirt is visible, is a great idea to wear vest in a modern way. A nicely fitted vest teamed with trousers makes you look gorgeous the formal way. A pull-on sweater knit vest under a beautiful blazer and a faux fur vest looks great too. The best way to wear a faux fur vest is to wear it over a turtle neck top. A long silver chain with a pendant can enhance the look manifold.
Get inspired and pair your skinny jeans and leggings with wedge-styled booties. These booties look just like old school chukka boots. Skirts look fabulous once worn with dressier booties. Nowadays booties come with fringe, crazy high heels, and embellishment. Go, grab them and have some back-to-school fun. You can try different colors to match your dresses. However, if you do not find a color of your choice then you can always use fabric colors or spray paint on them. Make designs of your choice with these colors and put your creative foot forward. Animal printed booties are a great hit too.
Buy a wide-brimmed wool felt hat or men style fedora. Knit caps are also very much in fashion. How about hear-bands? Remember the school days when no style was complete without a hear band? So, bring on those days. These would enhance your look manifold while taking you back to your school days. Even the hair clips would make you look beautiful in their own special way.
