The Teen Scene: Girl’s Seasonal Must Haves

September 19, 2010

Scoping out what the teen scene will be looking like this school year among the ladies has been very surprising.  I’m seeing some of the old favorites coming back for a repeat season performance and being incorporated with some new trendy styles.  Ed Hardy is among the list of old favs in addition to some new updates.  All Star Converse is never out of season whether high or low tops, you find girls styling them with their jeans — or should I say “skinny’s.”  

Look at what’s new that’s been added to the list of must haves for this Fall/Winter season, you’re going to see a lot more suede and leather in the form of ankle boots, knee high boots, and mid-calf boots as well.  Girls this year will be sporting their heels ranging from the pancake flat sole to the as high as 3 1/2 or higher, getting their swagger on. 

Skinny’s of course never took a holiday over the summer, in fact, we can plan to see a lot more colors, terrific pocket designs, and flair that are sure to spark up every teen girl’s fashion scene.  “It’s all about the look!” My daughter will tell you, and “this year every body’s wearing cardigans.”  So to keep in line with keeping my 15-year old daughter trendy and up on fashion, it’s been about enhancing her wardrobe with a new collection of skinny jeans, cardigans, ankle boots, and of course, her favorite suede boots, which she absolutely can’t do without. 

In addition to the black strap and chain ankle boots I picked up for her just before the start of school, my girl will be sporting these cuffed brown faux suede boots from Qupid to school in her 2nd year of high school.  They are styled with a 3.25 inch heel, cross strap detail around the ankle, fashioned with a slouch leg — promises to be styled in any occasion.  Photo from Makemechic.com.   Then again, we are looking at a hot pair of ankle boots from UrbanOG that will do the job just as well in keeping her stylish.

Next up, I mentioned cardigan sweaters which are looking like they’ll be a girl’s delight as well head into colder temperatures.  And what Fall/Winter season wouldn’t be complete with fashionable sweaters coming Express, The Limited, The Gap, Hollister, Victoria’s Secret, and H&M?  I don’t know about anyone else’s daughter, but mine is very particular about her sweaters and how they look.  And this year it’s all about cardigans simply because they can be worn under a jacket or coat and still keep the ensemble in check.

With that kept well in mind, my daughter’s specificity in sweaters and cardigans, I tend to frequent Victoria’s Secret online.  I also go to Rainbow located at 3611 South La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, CA  90016 at the intersection of Rodeo Road and La Brea on the south-west corner.  This is the perfect time to get in gear for winter wear at Rainbow, the prices are unbeatable and there is a huge selection to choose from.  And with school officially back in season, this is when they have their biggest sales that get even better when the holidays roll around.  Right now you can buy a pair of shoes or boots and get a second pair half off.  And you can get jeans below $20.00.

Accessorizing the winter wear comes with hats and scarves that adds a certain pizzazz to keeping fashionably warm.  This scarf from Abercrombie & Fitch is ideal as we send our young ladies off to school to get a good education, but at the same time fending off frigid temperatures.

Parents:  Keep in mind that even though they like to look in their girl wear, there is nothing wrong with adding some thermal wear to their under fashion.  Thermal wear has evolved over the years and are suited to match the trends that girls fall into today.  While we don’t know exactly just how cold of a winter season we’re going to have, we still want to know that we’re keep them warm while keeping them trendy.
