Summer 2011 is the season of shorts
Tokay High School senior Rachael Kullings, junior Taylor Majernik and senior Savannah Perkins love wearing shorts.
Majernik says most students have their own style — whether provocative or bohemian — but her favorite outfits are a combination of tank tops, capris and sandals. “If I could wear that every day, I would,” she said.
“My style consists of your basic T-shirt and shorts with a little twist,” says Perkins, who often adds boho and tribal looks to her outfits.
Though Kullings dresses for comfort, she also aims to be cute and stylish. “I don’t like shirts that stick to my body, and I prefer clothes without sleeves,” she said.
Each of the girls are wearing canvas shoes, like the TOMS brand that is popular at both schools.
A lover of dresses, Tokay senior Abygail Hernandez (left) likes a simple, yet chic, style. She embraces the current boho style found at stores like Forever 21 and Express. She also prefers looks that are not too done up, and says natural is cool. Here, she wears a one-piece pants suit that flows like a long dress.
Tokay senior Emma Pesusic is both classic and casual. She likes to dress up, but depending on her mood, also likes wearing comfy sweatshirts.
To the far left, she wears a long, colorful dress from Forever 21. The colors and design give the dress a tribal look students are wearing this fall.
“I like it because it’s in trend and it has fun, bright colors,” Pesusic said.
Like a lot of students, Tokay junior Ryan Rushing goes for comfort. How does he decide what to wear? “Whatever I find in the morning.” Here, he shows is wearing a T-shirt and jeans.
Being her own person
Tokay junior Jordanne Britt mixes up her style every day, and tries to wear what others don’t have, such as her thrift store flannel shirt. She pairs it with a V-neck, shorts and TOMS shoes. “I would say I try not to fit in, and try to be my own person,” she said.
Sometimes casual means pajamas
Lodi High senior Morgan Pelot (left) isn’t afraid to take casual to the extreme, and will even wear pajamas to school. Usually, though, she sports shorts and a T-shirt.
“I’m very casual, but I like to be casual and cute at the same time.”
Color, color, color!
Colorful. That’s how Lodi High senior Victoria Pritchard describes her style.
“Colorful pants are a lot of what I wear — and colorful bracelets,” she said.
Nothing like a T
Lodi High junior Jacob Hane likes shirts with designs. His favorite T-shirt is an “Adventure Time” shirt because he likes the animated show. Though he can’t wear a hat during school, he likes to wear it in the morning to help manage his hair.
The fashion blogger likes eclectic style
Tokay High senior Sonum Singh — who writes about fashion on her own blog (www.theurbanfashiongal.com) and blogs at Teen Vogue — describes her daily style as eclectic. To make this look, she paired a crochet skirt with a graphic tee, harness belt, velvet hair bow and Oryany bag. She shops at Urban Outfitters and Etsy, the vintage and handmade online store.
Goodbye backpack, hello boho bag
Heather Beckwith’s favorite accessory is her large bookbag, a hand-me-down from her sister-in-law. With shorts, a graphic Tee and side braid, the Tokay sophomore describes her style as creative.
Look fresh with ‘swag’
With cargo shorts and a T-shirt, Wyatt Horn’s (center) style is “Swag ... when you’re lookin’ fresh.” Kalie Winn, sophomore (left), simply wears what she likes, and shops mostly at Forever 21. Hunter Ross, sophomore (right), likes to shop at Anchor Blue and usually wears graphic tees. The three friends say the biggest styles around Lodi High School this season are “skaterish” and Bohemian girl.
Traditional, yet bright
Though she says she dresses pretty traditional in capris and cute tops, Lodi High freshman Mercedes Valenzuela does like to mix up her look with neon colors in her wardrobe.
Lisette James and Sunny Eisenbeis, both Tokay sophomores, typically wear bohemian or tribal-print to school, but on game day, they wear their volleyball T-shirts.
Laid back in T-shirts
Nick Nunez, Luis Lopez and Homero Herrera, all Tokay seniors, love their T-shirts.
Herrera describes his style as preppy, and usually wears a outfit similar to this pairing of a Hollister T-shirt, sandals and cargo shorts. “I just wear what’s comfortable,” he said.
Lopez’ style is simple: Skater. It’s the jeans-and-T-shirt look he’s been sporting since he was in seventh grade. Around campus, he sees more people wearing brands like Girl, LRG, RBCA and Vans.
When he’s in school, Nunez said he also wants to be comfortable.
We heart capris!
“Capris are the best,” Lodi High friends and drill team members Haley Clem, Victoria Rivera, Melanie Lacy annouce together. They say it’s easier to wear capris than the shorts, which are often considered too short for school.
