Go to the Head of the Class


I'm loving this school girl goes cool look. She totally made this look youthful with catholic girl priss, but added an edge to it that doesn't look too 'hit me baby one more time'. Digging the sweater dress too. I'm telling you, sweater dresses are here for at least a year, so dig one out of your ma's closet or even invest in an expensive cashmere version. You will want to wear it daily! So cozy and well worth the investment!

sorry PS, she looks more frump than fashion! What's with her white shirt rolled sleeves? For a minute I thought she had stolen one of my fathers old neck ties and wrapped it around her waist. Grey might be a bad choice for her as well, she's not a large woman a by any means but grey seems to add 10 kilos to her. She needs a black, dark brown or navy sweater dress.

Good point on the colors (as I sit here in a grey sweater dress that shows every lump...yuck). I've found that heather greys seem to be really hard to wear and should be left to athletic gear. Although this may just be a bad angle because this girl is a size 0 and looks much better in motion.

I really like the school girl look, but I feel like everytime I leave the house every perverted old man acts like I am trying to be Brit from the "Baby, One More Time" video. How do I keep the street cred but lose the dirty stares?

Hi Full Cup
Yeah this look can be tough to pull off without looking too 'lolita'. The key is to balance the look with some casual elements. For example, if you are going for the short short skirt, wear a cute flat shoe. If you have a more conservative jumper that could pass for a real school uniform (and there are a lot of those out there right now!) then opt for a cool high heeled boot. Get the formula? NEVER mix sexy with sexy, those two elements together only work for a dancin' girl. That way you are rocking the trend without looking like a sexed up Britney or her little sister!
