What girl doesn't love denim high waisted shorts for the summer? They look perfect with every top, whether it be a tank, tee, or bralette. And even better, they come in so many different varieties! With all the different custom shorts companies out there, it's as if every girl can own her own unique pair of high waisted shorts. Let's take a look at some of my faves from this season:
Style star Vanessa Hudgens is looking fab as always at Coachella in her denim shorts!
I especially love these colored shorts! They are so stylish and funky!
Just a tip when shopping for high waisted shorts: don't be discouraged if you have trouble finding a pair that hugs you the right way. Every pair is different, and not every pair looks good on every girl. Some are sliming while others can make you look larger, so keep searching till you find the pair that's perfect for you!
Is it just me, or are checker prints like the coolest pattern ever? It takes a real daring fashionista to pull off this trend, but when successful, checker prints stand out in a crowd. This pattern has been around for a long time, and it is one of those prints that's chic, classy, and timeless (basically the opposite of animal prints). Contrary to popular belief, checkers are not just black and white. As seen below, wearing different colors adds even more edge to this style. So whether you're off to the races or off to the mall, checker prints are perfect for any occasion!
I love Louis Vuitton's Spring 2013 collection, which featured the checker print in multiple looks.
Have you picked up the top style magazines lately? It seems like everyone is checking out checkers this season!
Even the always stunning Jessica Alba is rocking this trend!
If you're into checkers but not daring enough to wear a whole outfit of the pattern, this Tarnish 'Checker Chain' Scarf from Nordstrom is perfect for you! This scarf has a lot of color and a hint of checkers so it isn't too overwhelming It's on sale right now (40% off!) so get it before it's gone!
As a junior in high school, I've begun my college search. Let me tell you, it is not an easy process. Every school has so many amazing things to offer, and it is so hard to find the perfect match. At most of my college visits, I have met admissions officers, professors, and even college students. I have found that it's important to make a good first impression at every college campus! Here are some ideas for the perfect outfit to make a lasting impression:
For the Art-School Applicant:
I am so in love with this outfit because it's definitely going to make a statement. The playful bright colors show that you are a daring fashionista, but the mint blazer and flats show that you're classy with your style. This is a perfect outfit if you are looking at artsy colleges like FIT, RISD, or Pratt because it displays your eye for color, love for patterns, and sophisticated college style all in one! An outfit like this will be hard to forget!
For the Small-School Sweetheart:
I just adore this look so much! The oversized sweater with printed pants is totally trendy and my favorite part of this outfit is the collar. I love this outfit mostly because it is not too dressy and doesn't look like you are trying too hard to make a good first impression, but it's the kind of outfit that gets you noticed!
For the The Ivy-Leauger:
When you're visiting or applying to a high-level academic institution, it is important to prove that you are, as Elle Woods would say, "Serious!" Schools of this type require a more subdued yet fashionable style. This is the perfect outfit for a school of this profile because it has a business look with a fun, stylish side. The button-down shirt with a tan trench coat is very mature, while the patterned skirt screams "I'm more than just brains, I'm also beauty!" With a classy pearl necklace and French Sole flats, this look is complete!
No matter where you are applying, it's important to let schools know that you are a serious student and that you love their school! And make sure to always dress to impress and arrive in style!
