The May 2005 issue of "Teen People Magazine" had a spread called "Bohemian Rhapsody" with captions like "embrace the gypsy vibe." The article featured popular WB star Emily VanCamp wearing brightly colored scarves, flowing skirts and large jewelry.
The trend doesn't stop there. Blazers, too, have become drawn to the Bohemian look. Junior Deanna Funes says that this year's outfits should be based on the Bohemian style but should also be "simple" and heavily accessorized, preferably with big shoulder bags and excessive bracelets and necklaces. "I think the accessories make the clothes. You wear like a white tank top and dark blue jeans, then accessorize," says Funes, adding that white is also a must-have.
While Cooper has seen a variety of styles this year, other Blazers have picked up on a few specific trends. There are four items that junior Christiana Cassell believes are 2005 spring must-haves: turquoise, gold, thong sandals and gauchos, which are loose fitting capris that flare out at the bottom. Tracy Whiting, manager of Last Stop in Prince George's Plaza Mall, also says that gauchos are popular with teens this spring, although she believes that cut-off-jean mini-skirts are still stylish.
Junior Brittney Winston believes, on the other hand, that the polo look, tunics and beaded Mediterranean shoes are fashionable this spring. Marisha Walker, manager of Up Against The Wall at Wheaton Mall, agrees. "There is a lot of Bohemian style going on, a lot of tunics," says Walker. She listed many trendy clothes for the spring season including military-style jackets, glittery jewelry and white pants.
As the spring breezes continue to blow, Blazers continue to choose different routes to dress fashionably, and according to Blazers, this spring is all about bright colors, the Bohemian look and expressing your own sense of style.
