How to wear it
This may be my personal favorite of all the Fall/Winter 2012 trends. It’s the easiest look to put together, and anyone can pull it off. Simply start by dressing preppy in the most cliche way possible, then, replace some items with edgy, rock star inspired pieces. This is Ms. Valedictorian- was-caught-smoking-behind-the-bleachers-and-had-a-whole-lot-of-fun-in-detention. Mix a pleated skirt and a collared button up with a black leather jacket and combat boots. Wear a collared dress with a belt cinching the waist, and an over sized plaid jacket on top. Basically, do 80’s prep meets 90’s grunge and you’ll do just fine.
