Top ten trends for the new season

Autumn/winter 2008-09 fashion trends: prep school


DKNY, Malo and Marc Jacobs have all gone back to school this season, with knee-high socks, crest-embroidered blazers, pleated skirts and argyle sweaters on display. 

How to wear it
Miniskirts with long socks, jeans with argyle sweaters...the possibilities are endless! But to avoid looking like you're on your way to 6th period maths, don't wear ballet pumps or trainers with the preppy look: break it up with heels or biker boots.
