a New York-based trade publi-
cation, is eclectic dressing. That
means, she said, "taking dressy
and casual elements and mixing
them together where there is no
right or wrong."
Supermodels like Cindi Craw-
ford and Naomi Campbell have
the look down pat. Their saucy,
nonchalant way of mixing vin-
tage pieces and Gap basics with
haute couture has made them
the new trend-setters for young
girls, says Bonnie Horowitz-
Fuller, editor-in-chief of YM
magazine, which reaches over
one million teen-age girls ages
13 to 20.
A hot item among this age
group right now is the classic
plaid flannel shirt. Girls may
wrap it around the waist of a
long, delicate granny-print dress
and ground the look with clunky
work boots.
Take that exact same plaid
flannel shirt for boys and they
will layer it open like a jacket.
The point is — it's not what
you wear but how you wear it. If
this anything-goes, ramshackle-
street style reminds you of
"grunge," the fashion rage of last
season, then you've got the right
idea.
This eclectic look has been the
backbone of the retail clothing
chain-cum-latest-teen-hangout,
Urban Outfitters, since they first
opened their doors 23 years ago.
"We were showing Doc
Martens and long flowing dress-
es together before this whole
grunge movement became fash-
ionable," said their national
spokesperson, Adriane Butler.
"Fashion has finally caught up
to us, and even Vogue magazine
is calling."
What's new for back-to-
school? Butler calls the look "ur-
ban renewal" — a mix of old
recycled clothing with something
new. "There are no strict dress-
ing rules. Just wear what feels
good," she advised.
But don't worry, Moms. Den-
im still reigns for back-to-school
clothes with both boys and girls.
"Primary-colored denim is
stronger than ever," said Susan
Blair, national director of Tal-
bot's Kids. Both boys and girls
are wearing their jeans super-
baggy, buying them in extra-ex-
tra large sizes and belting them
at the waist. Girls are also wear-
ing denim short-shorts layered
over long-johns, opaque tights
or slim sweatpants.
Obviously, layering is impor-
tant. Boys are layering hunting-
style multi-pocketed vests and
hooded shirts with everything.
For girls, a cropped sweater over
a long white shirt looks fresh. So
does a dress layered over an-
other dress (often sheer) over
slim, fluid trousers.

comedy, "Blossom," based on a
