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
What do you consider to be personal style staples? Share with us in the comments!
The past couple weeks we’ve given ideas and tips about costumes to make this Halloween absolutely boo-tiful, but today we want to talk about some costume ideas for you and your friendz! Halloween is such a fun time of the year, why not make it even more fun and coordinate outfits? Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha and I were hanging one day and exchanging ideas about group costumes. Here are a few of my favorite suggestions that the girlz had –
Cloe thought it’d be super fun if we all dressed up as some of the U.S Women’s soccer team players. Those ladies are super fierce and confident! They even won the gold medal this year at the Olympics in London. Talk about super stars! The costume would be really easy to create. All a gal needs is some black or blue athletic shorts, a soccer jersey shirt, some knee high socks, and athletic shoes. Finish off the look by carrying around a soccer ball. Get in the spirit and wear red, white and blue so everyone knows who you are! Cloe called dibs on Alex Morgan. Which player would you be?
Jade got all science on us Bratz and said we should be mad scientists. LOL! The outfits (as Kool Kat told us) would be a cinch to create and we’re guaranteed to be the koolest science girlz on the block! Start the costume out with your everyday clothes, add a white lab coat, and carry around some beakers filled with colored water (use food coloring). Next, pull up your hair in a ponytail but try to make it as messy as you can. That’s how you get the “mad” part of the scientist.
Sasha was creative with her idea and suggested we all be a swarm of busy bees. Get it? It’s because Sasha is a busy bee! There are plenty of bee costumes at stores to buy, or you can make your own from home. Grab a yellow shirt and stripe it with black electrical tape to create the bees’ body. You can do the same with the shorts, or just wear a pair of black shorts. Wings and antennas are the final touch and your swarm is ready to hit the streets in search of honey candy!
What would you and your friends dress up as? Share your ideas with us in the comments!
Hey there, Bratzies! Cloe here, and if you’re like me, you need a SERIOUS purse to hold all your makeup, your cell phone, journal, and anything else that could solve any possible issues at school, the mall, or even a dance! This Fall, the best bag there is to handle…well, EVERYTHING…is the stylin’ satchel bag.
Somewhere between a clutch and a shoulder bag, the satchel was made to be carried low by the handles, or worn high close to the body and around the shoulder. These bags are seriously roomy. I can fit my whole life in one of these, and thanks to its rounder shape, it doesn’t look bulky or clunky.
Plus, since it’s designed to be carried or worn close at hand, it’ll take less time to grab your cell phone out of it to put in a cute boy’s number!
Try coordinating the color of your satchel with the primary color of your accessories, such as your belt, shoes, or scarves – it’ll enhance those small doses of shade on your body and really make them POP! What would YOU put in your satchel before leaving the house?
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?
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?
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!
Hey dolls! Jade here with some healthy summer snack ideas to keep you fueled up for summer fun!
Healthy eats give me energy for one of my fave activities--SHOPPING!
1) Did you know fruit gets an extra splash of flavor with a little bit of lemon or lime juice and a sprinkle of salt? If you’re feeling feisty, put a shake of chili powder on top. You’ll find that the sweet fruit flavor really pops! My favorite is mango with lime and salt – it’s totally tropical and delicious! You can also do this with vegetables like cucumbers or tomatoes.
2) If you want something a little more filling, try a whole wheat English muffin with some peanut butter on top. Slice a banana and top the peanut butter with a few banana slices. This snack is super tasty, and packed with protein and healthy sugar from fruit, as well as whole grains to keep you full. Try it after a workout for the ultimate yummy and healthy treat!
3) If you’re craving something sweet, try sticking one chocolate chip right side up into a raspberry! These adorable and delicious berries are perfect for a simple, sweet snack, and everyone will rave about them if you serve them at a party. I think I’ll make these for our next Bratz sleepover!
Hey Bratzies! It’s Cloe here! I just got back from an awesome morning skate session. Sometimes I have to trade in the high heels for athletic shoes! It’s important that we take care of our bodies with proper eating and exercise if we want to stay fabulous!
It’s summer time so I try to get my daily cardio in by going to the gym or playing soccer-–I love it cuz I never lose! I like to switch it up every now and then with skateboarding. Getting involved in a sport is a great way to stay in shape and have fun. Physical activity doesn’t have to be boring! A brisk walk while chatting with friends for 30 minutes should do it or even 15-20 minutes of basketball!
There are so many fabulous activities such as dancing, hiking, horseback riding, skateboarding and fitness classes. It can get pretty hot in the summer so I’m sure the #1 option on most people’s list is the swimming pool! When you are having fun you totally forget you are working out, which is great for those who have a hard time getting the motivation! Don’t be a couch potato this summer–get up and get active!
Okay Bratzies now it’s your turn to share with us your favorite physical activity to stay fit!
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?
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!
