Today was "kickin' it old school" day at school. Of course, I chose the 80's. Basically, everything I wear belongs in every other time period besides 2009. I got a few "double takes" on my outfit today, but honestly, I would wear this on a regular day. It catches people's attention; youre remembered for it. I first became obsessed with the "biker chick 80's look" when watching Taylor Momsen on season 2 of Gossip Girl last fall. Obviously, you need to put a twist on the 80's look. Add neon and contrast colors. Play up your proportions with a cropped leather (faux, of course) jacket and a high waisted mini. High waisted skirts slim you down while elongating your torso.
Here are some trendy high waisted mini's that are under $50:
Here are some leather jackets that I love for under $100:
