So Back to School is in full swing!
If you’re an on campus fashionista (or simply wish to remember those days), we’ve found outfits inspired by some of pop culture’s most stylish students:
Whether you’re evoking Denise Huxtable’s Bohemian vibe, nostalgic for Lisa Turtle’s bright neon élan, or have a penchant for Dionne Davenport’s preppy swagger, The Fashion Bomb has modernized their on screen styles for you. Let’s take a look:
If you loved the neon of the early ’90’s, you can follow Lisa’s lead in bright print dresses layered under more contemporary boyfriend blazers. If you’re too shy for full on patterns, go for a subtle outfit, stacking on technicolor bracelets or funky, chunky earrings:
This unsung fashionista made waves on the Cosby Show, rocking harem pants with confidence before their recent resurgence on runways. Bring her look to life in menswear inspired button downs and hats–sauce it up for fall in tall ankle boots and over the top accessories:
Dionne “Dee” Davenport:
Black Mary Janes and pleated skirts are wardrobe classics, making it easy to channel Dee from the 1995 cult film Clueless. Go for uber preppy yet modern with pearls, stud earrings, and a Burberry check headband (knee high socks are optional):
Primetime’s original Daddy’s Girl can live on today in black bouclé jackets set off by gold chunky bracelets and flower pins. Slip on a hat for true Fresh Prince of Bel-Air flair, or make your look ‘bankable’ in peep toe patent pumps:
Stunt like a true Gossip Girl in Houndstooth coats toned down by black pencil skirts and demure headbands. Up the ante by adding a bright colored tote and patterned heels, keeping jewelry to a minimum:
