Like the 'Gossip Girl' gang, NYC students doll up uniforms
Wearing school uniforms doesnt inhibit the characters on the TV show Gossip Girl from showing off their personal styles. It doesnt stop real New York prep school students either. With jackets, headbands, bags and legwear, these gals have found a way to make required clothing all their own.
Erica's school has no restrictions when it comes to students hair except for dye. So this high school freshman spices up her look by experimenting daily with her locks. Todays choice: A thick headband atop a modern beehive.
Lucky Star, a sophomore, carries her books in a large handbag that coordinates with her uniforms blue motif.
Kristen gives her outfit a punky twist with a colorful scarf. On days this 15-year-old doesnt don a stand-out scarf, she usually wears a bright jacket.
Kelley, 14, keeps it simple with small accessories, such as these gold rings bearing a small stone, her name and a cross.
