Collegiate Chic

School-inspired fashions offer a fresh and young way to dress
Implications - The schoolgirl look has always been a favorite -- of both men and women -- but today's school-inspired fashions are centered on fresh preppy looks, rather than (sexy) innocence. These collegiate-inspired fashions, which range from plaid blazers to striped cardigans and colorful separates, provide a youthful appeal that consumers find refreshing and fun, especially when other designers are focusing on more serious, somber and monotone styles.
