School is back in session. The playgrounds and schoolyards are packed with kids running around, exhilarated to be out of the classroom. In the mad dash to get outside, gym clothes are thrown on over school clothes, and this fashion mix is in style for us grown-ups too. More sophisticated but with the same spirit, the look is playground punk, and blends sport with street style. Leather jackets and biker boots are mixed with schoolgirl classics like tartan kilts and penny loafers. Reissues of standards like the gym class t-shirt and old school canvas high tops are paired with tight candy striped jeans and quilted sweatshirts. Even the bike is a mix of chopper and traditional english style. It’s a look that’s playful and chic, a mix of naughty and nice, ready for action and perhaps a little bit of trouble.
