Betty answers:

Well, I love Forever 21! They have cute shirts at great prices! They have cute tops that are short and jersey style, and then you put a tank underneath. Really cute. Also H&M is having some sales right now, and they have great clothes! These stores are at great prices. Urban Outfitters is also a great stoe, but a little more pricy. A cute trend, is wearing skinny jeans of a dark color, some Vans or boots, and then a plain type of shirt with jewelry! Forever 21 has really cheap and unique jewelry! (I’m talking 2.50 here) Also, I heard feathes are in, maybe you can match them with your clothes! My friend makes feathers that are easily clipped in and can be changed daily with different colors. She says they’re asy to hand make. And for hair, for a perfect curled hair look, try the sock bun method. Also try the sleek and silky hair, its really easy just put your hair up leaving small sections and straightening then brushing one at a time until hair is complete. Looks great and lasts for a while! Show your personality!! I also love wearing bottle cap necklaces, sometimes they’re hard to find, so you can make them too! Good luck and have a great year! Remember to study hard, stay out of drama, and make good choices!
(My style, by the way, is skinny jeans, slightly baggy shirts that show a band I like or a cause I support then I tye it with a matching hair band, and then do my hair cute with a bow)

Betty answers:

Summer-y:
bright colored (Neon and color blocking)
tribal print
neon tank
floral top
Lace/crochet tops and dresses
nautical shirts
crop tops for sure!!!
Flowy cardigans or lacey/ see through
flowy blouses,
Bodycon Skirts- Good with loose top
White or Khaki capris
White jeans
In detail:
sun dresses<– Adorable to wear with a cardigan, statement jewelry, and sandals!

Lace/crochet tops, nautical tops (stripes, navy & white) These 2 are my favorite summer trends! Looks good with a statement piece (Long necklaces with a giant gemstone/pendant/design, owls, Feathers! Feather earrings! Gold studded bracelets! Multiple friendship bracelets<- Nordstrom has a lot)

Popular= crop tops/ Dolman tops! Pretty much anything flowy!

Cardigans (one flowy or lacey and another short sleeved sleeved one) You can get them at Forever 21, Macy's, etc. For plain ones you can get them at Nordstrom too!

Shoes:
Sandals: Gold- Steve madden! And now those tan,leather ones with many straps!
Flip-Flops: Striped, colorful, metallic- Havaianas Also try them with a bow/flower in the middle
TOMS- eco, and helps children in LDC's
Sperry- Cute!

Get shoes at:
A.M. Eagle
Urban outfitters
Dillard’s, Nordstrom, macy’s

Stop at Retail stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, or dillard's. I'm pretty sure Nordstrom has TOMS and all of them have havaianas, Steve Madden, and Sperry's and cute clothes!

Stop at stores that buy extra inventory from department stores like T.J. Maxx or Marshalls which also have designer names (Juicy, Guess, Steve Madden, Coach)

Common- Abercrombie, A&F, A.M. Eagle, VS PINK
For trendy stores try Forever21. And other favorite trendy stores of mine are:
Urban outfitters!!
Anthropologie!!!
Free People!!
Zara/ H&M/ Bebe
Vs Pink (This might be common)

Fall:
Haha! The Fall runways shows came out a few days ago but here is just the general gist of it:

70s fashion
Like the '50s and '60s coming back, so are the '70s! There are two main aesthetics: '70s bohemian, and '70s sophisticated glamour. This includes dresses that fall like shimmering water in the evening and high-waist pants with elegant blouses by day! High waisted wide-leg pants or flares, smartly belted in.Neat bow-blouses, especially ones with billowing or bishop sleeves. Particularly great are fabrics like silk and satin.Roll neck sweaters tucked into pants or skirts. Also layering over beaded necklaces or a vest!

Pleats- Popular in spring and also for fall! However, then pleats will be worn paired socks or tights and heels, and some cosy layers on top. A rock-chic pair of boots, mixed styles for contrasts (like flowly pleated skirts with a bohemian fur or a tough biker jacket), etc….

Fur Clothing- as always…
Bell Bottoms- aka Flare jeans
Wide Leg Pants

Accessories:
Leather-ware harness
Choker necklaces
Cuff bracelets!
Studs

Colors: This year fall is slightly different! Bright colors are also going to be trendy with fall!
Black
Olive
Bronze shades?
Midnight blue, silver, and gray shades
Forest green and plum

Oh! And I think that the popular tribal print will be slightly reinvented as a trend for Autumn too!
Uhh Feather, Tribal, Army green will be popular in both seasons!

Dress nonchalantly. Don't overdo it or under do it by wearing sweats. I think the 2nd and 3rd days are the days you should wear you cute new stuff :D. Be different!
Oh! I was going to add… You should also buy cute jackets like white jean jacket, cropped jean jacket, etc over dresses (very cute) or tanks that don't meet dresscode and Miss me jeans, uggs, Juicy couture, Pink hoodies, Coach bags are also popular
