Personal Style Tips: Divas

A true Diva loves the spotlight and is always looked up to as the trend-setter. Lyss, a 15-year-old aspiring fashion designer, loves to stay ahead of the trends and has her own fabulous personal style. To keep up with what's hot, she follows style icons like Kendall and Kylie Kardashian, and devotes her weekends to classes at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. She even runs an online clothing store where she selects the fashions and displays them on her site, Lyss. Here are some of our favorite selections from her collection. See if they fit your Diva style!

Cropped Tight Dress

The Shani Dress is a scoop-neck body-conscious mini dress featuring short sleeves, lace overlay and deep V-back. It looks fabulous with a platform heel and long dangling accessories like earrings and necklaces. The cropped, tight look in a bold color is a great recipe for head-turning Diva style.

Oversized Sweater

We so love Free People for their oh-so-soft oversized crocheted sweaters, like the Laguna Coast Pullover. Great for cool summer nights or back-to-school days, this sweater pairs nicely with colored jeans (shown here) or short denim cutoffs. This look is for the Diva who loves to make a statement but still cares about comfort and versatility. Not all Divalicious items are for one-outfit, one-season only! 

Big Bold Prints

Animal prints are the Diva's signature look. It screams: "Look at me, I'm confident, stylish and exciting to be around!" Lyss combed the 2012 Spring fashion runway looks and fell in love with this outfit which is great for a casual day or a fancy night out. We love the way the black top is paired with the black platform peep-toe shoes to offset the bold cheetah print leggings.

Bold Looks

These high-waisted Navajo-inspired shorts are a bold choice, especially when you make the look even bigger with a Western Caballero theme including a on oversized floppy hat (a modern take on the stetson) and fabulously shaggy brown leather boots.

It's the first day of school and you want to make a good impression on your new classmates. What do you wear?
  • I throw on jeans, a hoodie and my new Vans.
  • I grab that old, torn dress and quickly cut it to make a scarf for my hair and a sash for my jeans. I'm sure to be the only one wearing it!
  • Sweats, running shoes and a fitted tee - no reason I can't be comfy.
  • My new skinny jeans, boots and cute little purse are sure to get me noticed. I've been planning this outfit for weeks.

That's terrible and has happened and will probably happen with me again. I think you should try being nice to that mean girl even though you don't really like her. If she makes a joke about you just try to laugh at it, don't be hurt by it or make a mean comment back. :)

If you really want to get rid of the romantic feelings for him, just try picturing a future with him, and also asking these questions in your head, "Is he a good guy?" "Would we last?" But maybe he's acting awkward around you, because your friend asked him to Prom, but he might rather go with you, but doesn't know how to say anything about the situation. I would suggest talking to him about it, and if he is a jerk about it, don't bother. But talk to him first, and if he has the same feelings, then talk to your friend about it. I just want to warn you, that if you do this, you and others could get their feelings hurt. Crushes are a risky, scary thing in high school. Anyway, that's what I think you should do. If you don't want to do that, then follow what your intuition tells you.

I had a crush on this new guy, and it's really the first crush I had in a long time. But, he is so amazing that everyone else seems to have a crush on him too. In my family, I can't date until I'm 16 anyway. But my best friend just asked him out to prom. I realized that she likes him a lot and tried to let go of my feelings for him. I am not angry with her at all, if she wants to date him, great. But, it's been hard to let go of my feelings completely. I'm convinced though I just want to be his friend. However, I think he knows I used to have a crush on him, and he acts a little awkward around me, but I don't want to feel that way for him anymore. How can I get rid of my romantic feelings for him (should I? It's being the bigger person) and gain his friendship/lose the awkwardness?
