STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Get Educated in Schoolgirl Style

I never thought I’d say this, but Britney Spears could give us all a lesson in style. For this fall season one of the hottest trends is the schoolgirl look. Britney Spears definitely pulled that off in her infamous pop music video "Hit Me Baby One More Time." However, Ms. Spears was a little risqué in her video.
