Erin Carter, 14, just graduated from middle school and wants clothes befitting a soon-to-be high schooler. "I am obsessed with fashion and want to have a wardrobe that shows that." Price is a factor, too. Stylish and reasonable, coming up.
Erin's jeans, tee and flip-flops are fine, but she wants her clothes to stand out, like her fun purse.
A chin-grazing cut and brighter color on top call attention to Erin's pretty face, while a dark-denim romper ($50) and black tank ($8) bring her up to the minute. Bejeweled thong sandals ($25), satchel purse ($25) and patterned scarf ($13) add sparkle, shine and color.
A flutter-sleeve blouson top ($13), plaid bermuda shorts ($15) and no-paparazzi-please sunglasses ($13) are perfect for summer, while the studded purse ($15) punches everything up.
