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!

 

How to Wear Statement Jewelry

Hey Bratzies! Want to know what’s better than jewelry? Bigger, bolder, look-at-me jewelry! My newest obsession is the statement necklace. Chunky jewels are fabulous if you’re lookin’ to get noticed… and they’re great for adding some sparkle to any outfit, even a simple t-shirt and jeans! There is only one trick to rockin’ this look and that’s to not overdo it! For example, if you’re already sporting a super sparkly statement necklace then make sure to go easy on the earrings. They may be fabulous but you don’t want to get lost in a sea of jewels. Remember the jewels are the accessories, not you!

If chunky necklaces aren’t your thing, try wearing earrings to add a little sparkle around your eyes. Try colorful floral studs for a pop of color — match the color of your earrings to your eyes for extra impact — or hang a pair of bejeweled teardrop earrings for a fierce new look! If you’re wearing a statement necklace then pair it with a pair of simple rhinestone studs to add just the right amount of extra sparkle around your face.

Last but not least is a big, beautiful ring! Flowers and bows are very trendy right now – my favorite is the beautiful turquoise flower ring below that makes any outfit go from ordinary to super extraordinary! You really can wear these chunky rings with any outfit. But remember, only wear one bulky ring at a time – if you want to wear more than one ring then pair your big rings with simple bands. And if you are wearing multiple rings on one hand, avoid wearing statement bracelets and watches on the same hand.
