When someone mentions school girl fashion, knee-high socks, white collared blouses, pleated skirts, letterman sweaters, and blazers with school logo patches come to mind. In this day and age, however, there’s no shortage of fashion houses and style-savvy celebrities reinterpreting the school girl look. It’s interesting to note how versatile the preppy trend has gotten.

Just take a look at Emmy Rossum’s chic preppy attire!

The pleated skirt is nonexistent, and Emmy’s not walking in oxford shoes either. But this outfit exudes a school girl vibe, thanks to the actress’ navy blazer with a white piping so quintessential of preppy blazers.

The 27-year-old injected a classic panache to the school girl aesthetic by wearing her blazer with a pair of skinny jeans, a crisp white shirt with its top buttons undone and the hem untucked, and a pair of gray Coach Harlee pumps.

To add more color to the look, The Beautiful Creatures actress accessorized with a cherry red tote and a pair of red sunglasses.

This just proves that you can partake in the preppy trend without looking like you’re going to a Cosplay convention! The trick there is finding a good school-girl-inspired blazer and pairing it with your more modern pieces, such as your pair of skinny jeans, classic pumps, and basic white shirt.
