What's harder than trying to look your very best for school? After all, it is a great way for a person to express themself and show off his or her sense of style. Girls, you know how it can be on school mornings, standing before a cluttered closet and waiting for ideas to jump out at you. However, dressing like your favorite celebrities is the way to go. A typical Durfee student doesn't have to go too far to see how on-screen role models have played a big role in their peers’ attire.

Senior Jessica Silva rocks plain and simple attire, with a pair of skinny jeans, a brown button-up shirt, and a belt to accentuate her figure.  This cool and collected look is loved by many celebrities. 

Savannah Dorego likes to play it safe and sweet with gold gladiator sandals and a faux-flower in her hair. Many Celebrities have chosen to rock the gladiator look, whether on a day out in the city or on special occasions. Flowers in the hair have become a main accessory and are quite popular, especially in Hollywood and out on the red carpet. Musical artist Taylor Swift is often seen sporting a flowered headband.
