Get the fashion message?

December 22, 2009|By LAKIN THOMAS

I hope that my advice in my last two articles have helped you to spruce up your outfits and create some new and exciting looks.

Remember, if you have any ideas that you think would be great to share with other, send an e-mail to crystal.schelle@herald-mail.com. I would love to hear what you think about fashion, and what you do to make your style stand out from the ordinary.

For me, school is a very diverse place that shows a lot of uniqueness. You can definitely see that each individual person has her own sense of how she likes to dress. Some may not have a certain style, but the way they dress may say something about them. Teens who dress up their outfits beyond the T-shirts and jeans show that they care about what they look like, and take the time to put something creative together.

What's in: Long-sleeve message shirts. It has been less than 50 degrees outside these past couple of weeks and it's time to retire those short-sleeve shirts until warmer weather comes around again. As for the message part, showing a message on your shirt, whether it be in words or symbols shows that you stand for a certain cause or feel a certain way about something.

Sometimes these kinds of shirts provide for good conversation. Someone may see it and not totally get the meaning and you can explain to them what it means to you and why you think it is cool. For example, I recently went to Revolve and got this T-shirt that has a picture of a cartoon waffle with a face and a fork with spaghetti on it says "It's a girl thing." For someone else looking at my shirt, they would probably have no idea what it means, but it just allows me to answer their questions.

What's out: Boots with sweatpants. Girl, seriously? I mean I know they may be comfy to wear together, but it just looks like you really didn't care what you decided to wear that day. I think that your outfits each day should reflect who you are, and this style is just too ordinary and overdone. If you absolutely love to wear boots with sweatpants, at least try to make them look unique and in a way that some other people might have never thought of. So you can get away with this if you can spruce them up to 1) match your outfit, or 2) do it in a way that no one else has done before.

Fashion Tip No. 3: Dresses don't have to be just for summer and spring time weather. There are a multitude of sweater dresses out there and you can also, take a spring dress and make it a winter one by adding cozy tights and a warm sweater. Experiment with different pieces to see what you can come up with.
