From Cher Horowitz, to Britney Spears to Blair Waldorf, the school uniform inspired look has been in and out of fashion for decades...
These ladies made this style fabulous in their times but I've always believed that anything can be fashionable at any time with the right styling. There is definitely a way to rock the chic school girl look without looking like a blast from the past.
1. START WITH A CLASSIC SCHOOL-GIRL PIECE
This traditional piece will form the base of your outfit and set the preppy tone. I opted for a pleated mini skirt.
2. ADD A MORE 'CURRENT' PIECE
All things 'lace up' are on the hot list right now, so I chose this lace up bodysuit. Pairing a classic piece with something more 'on trend' creates a perfect balance.
3. CREATE LAYERS
Finally, instead of just wearing a boring skirt and top combo, add a layer or two to make the outfit more interesting and modern.
The most important thing to remember is not to go too literal with this look. Subtlety is very chic!
