This is the hottest look you can find for the fall (and they’re on sale now)

“Do you prefer fashion victim – or ensembly challenged?” once professed noted philosopher Cher Horowitz. Well fear not freshmen, this comprehensive guide will have you rolling up to the Brokelyn High Homecoming Dance looking fly, funky, fresh. So dust off those pom-poms and lace up those Chuck Taylors because we’re going back…back to school.

On Wednesdays we wear pink, but this time we will on Thursday

The Mean Girls

Were you a heinous bitch in high school? Did you rule the school with a perfectly manicured fist? Probably not – because if you’re reading Brokelyn you didn’t peak when you were 16. Even if you weren’t the HBIC then, you can live out your queen bee fantasies on October 16. Take a page out of Regina George’s (burn) book:

TOPS:

-Form-fitting polo shirt with vaguely amorphous animal head in the corner

-Pink blouse (even though it won’t be a Wednesday – Regina will allow it)

-Anything with the “Abercrombie & Fitch” or “Hollister” logo emblazoned on it

-A tank top with holes cut out in the boobs, if you’re really daring

BOTTOMS:

-Denim, plaid or pink mini

-Low cut jeans with rhinestones on the butt

-A Juicy Couture tracksuit

SHOES:

-Uggs (preferably pink and/or sparkly)

-Stilettos

ACCESSORIES:

-Silver Tiffany’s necklace with the heart clasp, circa ’01

-A shit ton of lipgloss

-Pin-straight hair
