Saturday Style File – Selphie Schoolyard Separates

Sometimes, it’s nice to feel like you’re in elementary school again, but without the omnipresent fear of getting detention, being picked last in gym or bullied by the Russian mascara mafia after school (full disclosure: none of the above ever happened to me. I was a dutiful, straight-A-minus student, DUH).

So when you feel the need to feel like a schoolgirl again, it’s nice to know there´s a way to do so without looking like an overgrown kid. The key is to add textured tights and a chunky knit sweater, basically, a spin on the traditional school-uniform silhouette. Oh, and keep the button-down crisply white, please. That´s a school rule you never break.

My makeup look was partly inspired by Selphie Tilmitt from FF8 (she’s my favorite female character from that game… eat my dust, Rinoa!) since my hair was doing its own thing that morning. Instead of fighting it, I decided to go with it, and while I might look a tad cliché-anime, at least I can pull it off because I’m Asian. Ha!

Look #2 – untucking the sweater gives you a more tomboyish look, but the skirt keeps it feminine.
