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.

If you could magically change things about your parents to make it better for you what would you change? For me it would be 1. Bigger allowance 2. Not have to babysit so much 3. Not having to eat food I don't like 4. No spankings
