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.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
