School is just around the corner, so let’s take a look at what trends we need to look for. To get closer to the pulse of today’s teen fashion, we travelled down to Lake Geneva to chat with a girl, asking what trends were on the horizon.
What do you look to be cutting edge for back to school this year?
“What’s old is new, but I see sort of a rebellious tilt to the upcoming trends. Emerging lately, this look contains halter tops or crop tops and jeans (the more rips, the better).”
If you had to put a name to it, more than just rebellious, how would you describe the trend?
“Good question, I would say it’s kind of a hipster-y, chic or emo mixture. Granted, I’m not a fashion expert, I’m just a teen wishing summer was longer.”
Wow, that’s a lot to take in. Let’s clarify that a bit. Pretend you were in an elevator waiting to go from the first to the tenth floor, okay? A lady and you get to chatting. She explains her confusion about today’s references to words like hipster, chic and emo. How do you answer that before the door opens for your floor?
“For me, I would have her picture an outfit of round hippie glasses, a cropped up shirt, cut-off black jeans all set together with a pair of high-topped Converse. Get the picture?”
Yes, we do. Thanks. Does a girl’s hobbies/sports affect her fashion styling? What I mean by that is, does the fact that you shoot trap or ride a dirt bike spill over into your fashion choices? Likewise, for softball players and cheerleaders. Do the hobbies/sports of today provide ideas or a natural progression of one’s fashion?
“I would say more of the cheerleader/softball player fits into what I previously described as the current trend. Me being a girl who shoots guns as a sport, I’ll wear some of those cute things, but I also like to be comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans. So, yes I guess hobbies do affect fashion styling, but it’s all kind of the same either way.”
