Nowadays a lot of schools require students to wear uniforms. Some people think that it is such a drag, but us Bratz think it’s totes easy to spruce up the outfit and rock that uniform with style!
There’s a lot more to style than just the clothes you wear. Even if others are wearing the same clothes, a girl can always make any outfit her own by adding some fun accessories or playing with different hairstyles. Here’s an idea – if you have to go to school wearing a uniform and the colors are blue, black or khaki, try adding a bold orange, pink or red necklace. Even some funky color stud earrings will do the trick.
Another popular way to accessorize is with a belt. Maybe try to find a metallic gold or silver belt to jazz up the day. Tons of inexpensive belts can be found at places like Forever 21 or H&M. There are plenty of fun ways to mix up belt styles. You can be traditional and place the belt in the loops, but if you are wearing a skirt try loosely hanging the belt around your waist. Or maybe even grab a pretty sash (or scarf if it’s long enough) and tie it around the waist. That could totally fancy up the outfit!
If you’re looking for another way to style up that everyday uniform, try having some fun with different hairstyles. Wear cute headbands that can be found at accessory stores like Justice, Claire’s, Forever 21, or even the little boutiques at your local mall. Also try fun styles that are totes on trend right now like the top knot (check this YouTube Tutorial out to learn how), a side pony-tail, a funky braid (here are 4 easy braids you can recreate from Refinery29) or girly-girl curls (ask mom to help curl your hair).
Remember girls & guys, be sure to know your school’s dress code rules and always ask your parents for permission to surf the Internet for tips & tools, or to use any sort of heating products.
Cold days and winter weather is here and that means there are times when we are stuck in the house due to the snow and rain.
I really love being adventurous so sometimes it’s hard to stay inside all day. I get the worst cabin fever! Whenever that happens though, my mom always knows how to entertain me! First, she suggests that I get cozy by the fire in the living room and read the newest issues from National Geographic or Teen Vogue. My mom tries to help me avoid being on the computer all day, but sometimes she’ll even hand me the laptop so I can read up on all my favorite fashion blogs like Refinery 29, Sea of Shoes, & StyleBistro. But I can only sit and read for so long before I need to do something else. Next, my mom will take me into the kitchen with her and I practice cooking. It’s super fun! And I always get to make myself a nice cup of hot cocoa and add as many marshmallows as I want. That always makes me happy!
Board games are also a fun way to pass the time. My fam will all sit around in the living room and play games like Monopoly (which can take soooooo long to finish), UNO, and Pictionary.
I must say that the coolest indoor activity my mom came up with was surprising me with an at-home chemistry set and encouraging me to create new nail polish colors. It’s so rad! I sit in the kitchen for hours trying to mix up what I think are the hottest colors of the season. I may even bottle them up and gift them for friends this upcoming Holiday.
How do you entertain yourself when you’re stuck inside?
Every year around this time the Bratz and I get together to talk about we are the most thankful for. It’s so much fun to get together, giggle a lot and talk about the things that make us smile every day!
Since Thanksgiving is next week, the girlz got together earlier and it was such a blast! We gave each other big hugs because we were (of course!) very thankful to have such amazing friendz in life. Then we giggled lots about all the cute boys that we were thankful to have crushes on. We’re also extremely thankful for our families! They teach us so much every day and love us no matter what (which is really awesome). Sometimes we can get a little annoyed, but at the end of every day our famz are always there to encourage us to follow our dreams, like the way Sasha’s fam encourages her to follow her fashion designing dreams with all the colored pencils and trips to the fabric store.
But most of all, we all agreed that we are really really REALLY thankful for all the wonderful and amazing Bratzies that we get to call friends! Each one of you are beautiful and special…we don’t know what we would do without all of you. We always love the conversations we get to have; from reading the comments on this blog, chatting on Facebook and tweeting our hearts out on Twitter. We are also really loving this new Instagram world and showing our friendz a different part of our lives. Pretty much what we’re saying is we just adore being your friendz and hope that you feel the same way!
What are you thankful for this year? Be sure to share all the things you are thankful for with friends, family and with us in the comment section below.
Happy Thanksgiving, Bratzies. We wish you all the love in the world!
Let’s face it, getting up in the morning for school can be hard sometimes.
It’s especially hard during the winter when it’s cold and gloomy outside, but you are nice and warm under the blankets! Lots of times we hit snooze over and over (and over) again to give us a few more precious moments of sleep. But those are extra minutes we could use deciding what to wear to school. So NOT cool. We Bratz love to have all the time we need to choose the perfect outfit for the day. A Bratzie can never be rushed when it comes to styling. But we also like to have our beauty sleep too!
Decisions, decisions—luckily, we always have back-up plans!
Sometimes we try to plan our outfit the night before (which totes helps us out).
Other times we choose an outfit that we’ve worn in the past and loved.
There are also our Bratz style staples that we make sure are always on-hand in the closet, just in case we are short on time (check out last week’s blog post for more deets).
One of our favorite things to do is talk on the phone with our bestiez about different outfits to wear throughout the week. Our friends are always there to offer great style advice and we couldn’t be happier!
How do you figure out what to wear every day? Help a Bratzie out and share tips in the comment section.
It’s no secret that the Bratz absolutely love to get dressed up and create some funky, fabulous fashions! We always have tons of fun playing with the clothes in our closets and trying to create more new outfits with items we already own. If you girliez are like us (which we know you are!), fashion and style is a big part of your daily life.
One afternoon we were all hanging around with our BFFs talking about our favorite outfits. After talking clothes for hours (obviously), we compiled a little list of items that all of us seemed to have in our closet that we often used in different ways to create awesome outfits. These items are great to keep on hand and tend to appear every year in some sort of trendy fashion. We thought it was a good idea to share these Bratz Style Staples with all of our friendz! These pieces can create many different styles that fit your personality and the best part is you can wear them from year to year!
Here are our Bratz Style Staples –
Leggings – invest in printed ones like leopard, zebra or a bright neon pair.
Jacket – denim or leather. Even a cropped jacket would be awesome!
White T-shirt – always great to pair with a maxi skirt, denim pants or printed leggings
Accessories – a statement or chunky necklace or earrings always make an outfit pop
Go-To Shoes – whether they are high top sneakers, black high heels, embellished sandals or glitzy flats, your go-to shoes should represent your personality & the outfits you like to wear
