Article Description: What is hot in teen
fashion? Find out what the fashion trends are.

Fashion is looking used or worn,
incorporating 'found' items or recycled 'treasures', such as
patchworked pieces, unmatching grandmother's button box
buttons, hand-assembled effects, pre-washed fabrics, and
"collectible" embellishments. Pieces that look handcrafted
[like those with embroidery] take on a new spin when worn
with sleek dark denim trousers and a sophisticated boot and
belt combo. A ruffle-bottom skirt is cute, too, especially
when worn with a structured top. Many dresses feature a
structured top with a gathered or draped skirt.
Jeans and peasant blouses are good together.
Jackets and skirts in denim are still favourites and the
trends point toward straight, skinny jeans. Handcrafted
looks, peasant touches, and rugged outerwear - top the list
of important trends for back-to-school teen fashion - all
with denim. The glittery ones in your closet are no longer
stylish, choose low-cut basics. Wear with pointy-toe,
kitten-heel boots for fresh diva style; top with a romantic
top for a stylish look [smocking, gathers, puffy sleeves and
embroidery touches] - smart when paired with jeans and boots
Fabrics for winter 2002/03 are knits,
jerseys, and tropical wools, as well as banner stripes,
distressed leathers and silks. Military looks with a
feminine touch, featuring navy blue, which hasn�t been shown
in years for fall, as well as Army greens. It's an elegant
look - rather than a grungy army fatigue look - with
epaulettes, gold buttons, double-breasted jackets, pieced
together with feminine blouses. Wear a printed tee shirt,
knit or blouse to tie a theme together. Animal prints are
still 'in', but now with feathers and furs added.
Colours go from various shades of black to
light sandblast. [Medium-range tints won't be as stylish].
Worn looks continue: whiskers, faded knees and bums, frayed
hems keep the vintage trend alive. Gone are the glitter and
studs of seasons past; instead, look for leather laceups and
embroidery around the leg area, seams and cuffs.
For something different, striped jeans [as
in engineer styles] or replace jeans with cords. If worn
with a fitted black top, the look is striking - or a
low-slung fringe belt. You can go for a distressed brown
leather style or a sleeker macram� version and still achieve
the same funky look. Worn low on the hips and with lots of
attitude. Also, to keep the prairie floral or gauzy tops
looking smart, pair with dirty denim or suede. Other groovy
looks include crochet, suede, and beads. And don't forget
the turquoise just yet. The always-in-style pieces like
fitted denim jackets, chinos [khaki trousers], and oxfords
are key pieces that can be worn with any trendy look to
avoid going overboard.
Check out plaids, tweeds, and argyles in
fresh patterns, and keep an eye out for fitted cable-knit
sweaters, low-button polo tops, and monograms. Keep the look
new by mixing it up - wear a rugby style top with a big
suede belt; pair the plaid skirt with an athletic hood but
keep it colour- coordinated, wear khakis with a funky little
peasant top and kitten heels.
In America blues are important in various
shades as seen in the sky and water to give comfort during a
difficult economic period. Metallic colours, including
silver and gold, are often worn with white.
Ethnic groups are represented in fashion,
such as Choctaw, Chippewa and Iroquois and leather fringe
trim on boots.
For dress-up: fur in bibs and trim, along
with handsome fox wraps. Plenty of hot colors, such as
crystal-embroidered brick jackets and turquoise-flared minis
over beautiful Inuit-style, hand-sewn ankle boots with
Some models appeared in the latest fashion
show dressed as citified Inuit in their high red heels,
bobby sox, a tight skirt under a draped strapless silk
bustier. Also, actually wearable was a short brown shearling
jacket with furry stripes, worn over a multicolored elastic
hip girth and colourful chiffon skirt.
The whole theme is primitive. A lot of the
outfits have an unfinished look - it's a casual line with a
lot of bleaching and sandblasting.
