Let’s get real –you cannot those cut-off jeans, that Ed Hardy Top and that NYC cap to school can you? And at the same time, it’s not like you can stick to floor-length skirts and baggy, collared t-shirts all the time. You have to settle some ground; keep your flair while at the same keeping well within the dress code. So here’s my tip –accessorise. There’s nothing wrong with mixing and matching a set of colourful studs, going insane with big, glossy, chunky bracelets and bands, even add a chain or two. If you’re in a uniformed school, exchange that lumpy, pleated skirt to a new design that’s, maybe, a la mode. Jump on the blazer and jacket trend and look elegant yet still smart in your uniform.
