I always end up buying/making a few cute things to wear, then never know what goes with them. I recently made a long string of pearls, which I can wear several ways, but I have no idea what the "in" style is to wear them. I dont know what to wear with them either. I want to be casual, but slightly dressy. I also bought a bunch of new socks, knee high and thigh high, and I have a few skirts to go with them, but am planning to make a few more. What is the best style of skirt? I have a few plaid school girl ones, but I would like something more sophisticated. Any comments are appreciated!

the best way to dress down costume jewels is to pair them with something classic....ie a basic crew neck tee, wifebeaters (classic not classy), jeans, or even a simple skirt.

again basic is key...a line skirts are always "in" as well as denim mid to minis pair them with a simple shoe...mary janes for dressier or chucks to dress down.

the main thing is to be comfortable...in your clothes and in your skin - that way you'll look great in whatever you wear!

Long, '20s-style strings of beads of any kind are in fashion here in Britain at the moment. People seem to be leaning towards hippie-ish fashions at the same time, and the two do go surprisingly well together.

im agreeing with the "basics" idea, they never go out and accesorising (sp?) them is the best way!! xxx

i used my pearls in my pants!   you know when your pants get holes in the knees and those white threads begin to go across?  i strung pearls across thare, instead of just plain white threads showing, now my knees are all dressed up.

as long as it looks decent who cares about what the in style is. I usually wear long beads with a know tied in the bottom and twisted around me neck once early 19th century style. I made a really nice three tiered skirt out of small print floral material, but I like straight mini skirts too.
