Back to School Fashion for Girls

It’s a blast from the past this 2011 fall season as fashion trends from the '40s, '60s, '70s, and '80s unite. Pick almost any fad fashion from those decades and you’ll look like you walked right off the runway.  

Color palettes are all over the place this year, from earth tones such as mustards and burnt oranges, to jewel-inspired colors like deep purples and rich blues, to the classic schoolgirl black and white.

Dresses and Skirts

An easy way to transition your summer dresses into your fall wardrobe is by adding a pair of tights. Not only will they add warmth, but they'll also give you a rock and roll edge, especially if you pair them with some rocker chic ankle boots. If you’re ready to pack up your summer wardrobe and start fresh, purchase some '70s-inspired maxi (floor-length) skirts. Florals, stripes and knit designs are the dominant patterns this year. You’ll find a lot of these in the 2011 Missoni collection at Target.

On The Top

Layers. Layers. Layers. This season, it’s all about wearing your clothes like an onion (not that onions wear clothes). It begins with a basic tank or print tee and ends with this years’ staple piece, the crop top. Your layers should be flowy and oversized.

On The Bottom

Skinny jeans may not be out of fashion, but the newest trend is built for comfort - wide-leg jeans, and for a second year, high-wasted trousers. (It seems we’re creeping back toward the '90s flares and '70s bellbottoms.) Tuck in a floral blouse or a printed tee and you’re good to go.

Accessories

Don’t be afraid to accessorize!. From bulky knit scarves to chunky bracelets, anything goes this season. Add a classic clutch and some Vans, Toms or military-inspired boots for a complete fall 2011 look.

How Important Is Fashion to You?

  • Fashion is my life!
  • It's pretty important - but my friends and family come first.
  • It's fun, but not very important to me.
  • It isn't important at all.

I don't think she's jealous -if so it's not to a point where she's angry with you. She's probably just sad because she's been trying so hard -for what seems like a fairly decent time now- to be a good singer. Having a best friend who is a good singer and is acknowledged for it might just be hard for her right now. *Try talking to her -don't ask her if she's jealous, ask her if she's okay. *Point out things she's good at -not randomly  though... if it comes up in the moment.  Ex: She's creative and good at making crafts. Compliment her. "Oh, that's really cute. Seriously!? How do you make these things?" *Do something fun with her -let her know that's she amazing just the way she is. I really hope this helps! ^-^

B-who-u-r-and-SING
Well I don't think I can ask her because I can't really say "Hey are you jealous because I can sing better than you?" That would just make her plain mad at me, she does seem disappointed, if I don't walk up to her and start talking to her she would probably act like I'm not even there!
