the innocent bookworm in “An Education.” She knows she’s looking the part but she’s not trying to. The key here is to look effortless. A plaid skirt will forever have a place in history as ‘school-y’ and let’s be honest, after the 2003’s Burberry mania; the plaid became, without a shadow of a doubt, a wardrobe staple.
I was a model student, under the radar and always abiding. If I had to do it all over again—God forbid— I would try to sneak in some pop culture references, and once a week do the unthinkable and wear a colored shirt! Not that I’m preaching for a rebellion, but why can’t schools have a day of color, a day where students can come as they are? Rainbows can rule the world.
