While my style is pretty consistent day-to-day (loose fit, basics like tees and denim, lots of black, etc.), every so often a new "look" catches my eye that I want to work into my everyday style. I've been really into what I call the "school girl prep." The look starts with a pleated skirt, preferably plaid of course. The way to be sure that it stays chic and mature though is to use a rich color pallet, with deep reds, greens or navy blues. I love it paired with a backpack to play off of the trend even more.
