School Girl Trend
One of my favourite looks is the school girl, preppy look. This trend isn’t exactly new; legendary designers like Alexander McQueen, pop superstars (think Britney) and some Japanese culture has experimented with this trend. The academia style consist of items like long socks, pinafores and cute blouses. When I saw this shirt from ASOS I knew it had to be mine. The crucial thing for me is to not actually look like you've just got off the school bus, but add some quirky cute pieces to your wardrobe for the preppy look.
I love the cute sleeves that tie up to create little bows around your wrists. I paired the checked shirt with this navy pinafore. Not only is this a super comfy outfit but such an easy way to nail that school girl look.
Although we aren't actually heading into school and filling our bags with textbooks and pencil cases, but our iPhone and makeup essentials, a backpack can be a cute and functional addition to your preppy look. I like to keep everything colour coordinated. I just feel like you can get away with it with this look. And hey, why not?!
It's still slightly acceptable to have a bit of your leg out, as long as your not spending a prolonged period of time or you might freeze to death. I usually prefer over the knee socks, but went for knee high this time. Top tip - longer limbs look better with long pulled up socks, for shorter girls try ankle socks or knee highs so you don't lose the length of your leg!
