when I was skimming through the back of “Flare Canada’s Fashion Magazine” I noticed a lot of vests in the “Mix it up” section out of 10 looks 3 had vests and 3 had long jackets. All of the jackets had buttons to button up. (None of the coats where buttoned up though to show the rest of the outfit of course.) Also there were quite a few long top/short dresses. 5 of the looks I believe.
I think that you could easily be transformed into something Jr. High students could wear or put outfits together with. One outfit would be a long sleved top under a short sleeved short dress for a top, and either skinny jeans or leggings for your bottoms. That way you can incorporate the Fashion Element with the what people at school wear into 1 outfit. Then you can accesorize the outfit any way you would like to bring the you aspect into your outfit. There is one perfect outfit that has a bit of you, fashion and what people wear to school and also standing out because of the way you accessories and the aspect of the top being longer.
Another thing you could do is a long coat with a long top with pants or leggings. Accesorize with belts and chunky long necklaces any colour you wish that is your you aspect. And there is a second or if you want with that same outfit just swap the long coat for a vest and you have yet another outfit.
Hope these tips a will help you in your outfit picking in the future!
