2004 Back-to-School Fashions

The first day of school is the best time to dress to impress your new classmates. So even though you may not want to swap your sunglasses and flip flops for pens and binders, you can look forward to your trip back to the classroom by going back-to-school shopping! Find out what's in style for fall 2004 so you can head back to school sporting all the latest must-haves!

Wrap Yourself

The poncho is everywhere this season. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns, so you'll never get bored with its style! Plus, it'll keep you warm during the cool autumn months. Pull your poncho on over your favorite jeans and one of the many tanks that you've been wearing all summer. You can even jazz things up by clasping on a big pin with faux gems.

Plaids and Pleats

Plaid miniskirts continue to be all the rage this fall, with cool new details like double belts. Go for the sweet school girl style by wearing it with a knit sweater, or rock it with a graphic T-shirt, funky hat and cool boots. You can also accessorize your pleated denim mini by tying a long scarf around your waist and wearing it as a belt!

Fall Sneak Peek

Once the weather turns cooler, trade in your flip flops for old-school kicks like Pumas or vintage Chucks[kwlink]. These retro-style shoes are definitely cool for school. You can also step out in ballet flats, which will give you much-needed comfort as you stylishly walk to class!

    Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]
