School Uniform Stylin’

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.

NYC Fashion Week Love

Hi there, Bratzies! Jade here and I’ve got a serious case of New York Fashion Week! What a great week for the city, I so wish the Bratz could have been there front and center for all the glam!

Let’s talk runway trends. From fierce prints to super brights like blues, reds and greens, it’s going to be another bold year in fashion! Think florals with stripes, funky prints with a girly touch and intense color blocking with a bright blues and soft pinks. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colors that may not typically match, Bratzies. Let the imagination run wild this season because it’s all about making a personality statement and taking outfits to new heights. Sure sounds like Bratz style to me!

I definitely will be taking some serious fashion trends to the L.O.V.E Jade boutique and will be sure to share all my style inspiration on the blog.

I’m SO excited to share my new styles with each of you and see what all the Bratz fashionistaz will be wearing this next year.  I always love seeing the great outfit creations from each of you! What were some of your favorite looks from the runway? Post your comments below!

Fall Into Summer

A cute floral Summer dress like this can be totally Fall-worthy with just the right accessories…swap out those heels for some ankle boots, and rock a dark turtleneck underneath!

Hey there, Bratzies! Yasmin here, and I don’t know about you, but I am SO not ready to stop wearing some of the cool clothes that I bought for the Summer! Just because it’s Autumn doesn’t mean our fun in the sun outfits have to “Fall” out of our closet.

It’s all about pairing some breezy-weather items with our tanning outfits. Got a cool silk tanktop? Wear that with some cool skinny jeans, high heels, and some big jewelry.

Still want to rock that floral-print sun dress? Add some ankle boots and a black turtleneck around you to tone down the Summer attitude into Fall cool.

Still want to show your legs in some cute jean shorts? Pair it with a motorcycle jacket and a long-sleeved dark-colored top.

It’s all about taking the best of both seasons and making it timeless! What Fall fashions do YOU plan to pair with your Summer classics?

 

 

 

 

Smart Style

See how a little preppy houndstooth pattern on my pants gives the outfit an edge without overpowering it? Give it a shot, schoolgirl!

Hello to all my Bratzie girls! Cloe here, and I’m getting ready to shop for some cool new plaid skirts so I can be prepared to go preppy!

The newest Fall trend calls for us ladies to start breaking out the school uniform-type clothes and accessories, such as cardigans, vests, knee socks, argyles, plaids, thick-framed glasses, and loafers–but with a stylish twist!

Try incorporating a preppy-type pattern or item into your usual outfits, like a houndstooth skirt or pants, or some argyle knee-socks with your favorite skirts.

It’s so awesome that dressing like you’re going to school can look so fabulous outside of school! What kind of prep-tacular accessories or clothes do you plan to try out?

That’s all for now…stay looking SMART, Bratzie girls!

 

Fall Fashion Goes Flat

 

Sculpted heels are awesome, but sometimes fashion needs both feet FLAT on the ground!

Hello my Bratzies! Your Funky Fashion girl Meygan here, getting ready to head back to school in a totally trendy way! This Fall has me thinking outside the box…the shoebox, that is! While I am all about the sky-high heels, a fashionista on the go needs to give her feet and back a rest now and then, which is why I am so totally stoked about the upcoming Fall trend – flirty flat shoes!

They go well with any skirts or skinny jeans, and can be as dressy or casual as you need them to be. Plus, you can throw them on super-fast if you’re running late for class, and make the mad dash to homeroom in no time without worrying about tripping in front of any cute boys! Make your first attempt at flats a bold one…try shimmery, sparkly fabric, or open-toed with a bright toenail polish.

Remember Bratzies, fashion goes a lot farther when you’re comfortable, so make that step back into class a smooth one! What kind of flats would you wear on your first day back?

 

Mixing Up Outfits

Hi Bratzies! It’s so close to back to school time and that gets me excited because I LOVE back to school shopping! A new backpack, new shoes and awesome outfits are what gets me motivated for fall. But here’s the bad part: once the first few weeks go by and I’ve worn all my brand new outfits I get stuck in a fashion rut! So I’ve been thinking of new ways to spice up my outfit choices.

One great way to mix up your outfits is to pair a dress with a cute top! It really works wonders to your wardrobe by creating a whole new look. A short sleeve bright cardigan layered over a printed dress topped off with a nice belt comes together nicely. Try it out and let me know how many new outfits you come up with!

I mixed it up and made this dress into a whole new outfit!

 

 

Bratz Pop Star Fashion Inspiration

Hey Bratzies! Like our new look? We love to dress up and get glammed up like our favorite pop stars! Sometimes you just have to let your inner rockstar out to play for a little bit! It’s such a refreshing way to let loose and get into character. The wild-colorful hair, fun make up and creative styles allow us to use our imaginations. Our favorite part about dressing up is karaoke time–we love to sing our favorite pop star’s song while dressed up! Today’s pop stars inspire our funky, fashion forward looks. Can you guess which pop star is each of our favorites?

Bratz Trendy Sunglasses Tips

Hey Bratz fans! Sasha here to tell you about a simple and inexpensive summer accessory!

When it comes to enjoying the hot summer rays every girl needs a pair of cool shades! Not only are sunglasses a great way to protect your eyes from the sun they also compliment any outfit–especially a swimsuit! On those days when you just want to rock shorts and a plain T or tank your sunglasses can add that extra pop you need to turn heads. Celebs accessorize with cool shades all the time and you can too!  Sunglasses are always in fashion so no matter what brand, style or color you choose to rock, you’ll look stylish!

Fashionably Yours,

Bratz Fragrance Tutorial

Hey Lovelies! What’s your go-to summer scent? I am totally obsessed with fruity, citrusy mists — they’re perfect for summer! Yasmin loves floral scents because she says they remind her of spring blossoms and butterflies. Sasha is always sporting the sweet scent of vanilla and coconuts, and Jade is all about the clean, fresh scents that remind her of the ocean!

Ever wonder what the difference is between body spray and perfume? Here is a quick tutorial!

Body Spray (aka body mist or body splash) is great for school because its sweet scents are subtle but refreshing! You’ll smell as sweet as can be without bothering your classmates with strong, overbearing scents.

Eau de colognes and eau de toilettes have a greater concentration of scents than body spray but less than perfume. Their scent will linger longer than your average body spray but won’t be too intense.

Eau de parfum and perfume have the greatest concentration of scents per bottle. They last longer and shouldn’t be applied heavily. Spray just a little on your wrists and neck and you are good to go all day!

Tell me what your favorite scent of the season is and why!
xoxo,

 

Summer Skin Care

When the summer sun is shining bright I love splashing around at the beach all day with my girlz! It’s so easy to get carried away with summer fun and forget about putting on some extra SPF.

Remember, part of being a fabulous fashionista means taking care of your body—and your skin is so important to protect! The sun can damage your skin very badly over time and can cause wrinkles, age spots, eye problems and sometimes go as far as skin cancer.

I embrace my natural glow and protect my skin from the sun's harmful rays!

I always slather on SPF 15 face moisturizer every morning. When I know I’m spending the day enjoying the great outdoors—whether at an outdoor mall or hanging with friends at the park—I put at least SPF 15 sun block all over myself. When I’m active outside or going in and out of water I make sure to reapply many times throughout the day. Even the sun block that says “sport” or “water proof” on the package needs to be reapplied because it does come off!

There are other ways to be skin smart in the sun by the clothes you wear, like wearing a big floppy sun hat! I pair it with some wide rimmed sunglasses for a retro glam look! It protects my face and eyes and looks great.

If you must have that sun kissed look do it safely! I dust a little bronzer on my cheeks and forehead so it gives just the right amount of warm glow to my face. To get an all over body glow you can use self-tanning lotions. Some work gradually, meaning the color builds up each time you use it and others are stronger and give you an immediate glow. My best advice for self-tanning lotions is to exfoliate your skin before with a loofah and a good body scrub.

Enjoy the summer sun—go out and play! Be safe, love, laugh, live and embrace your natural glow!

Love,
