This tired take on bohemian sensibilities is making a comeback with tweens -- but don't even think about distorting the natural shape of your body by covering it with waist-less overalls. Thanks to the tween whose closet you're continually feeding, you've probably got a few curves. Don't hide them under billowy overalls and hope for a good outcome. It just isn't going to happen. And for goodness sake, don't put your hair into low-slung pigtails.

Instead, tap into the trend by wearing a relaxed boyfriend jean in a natural indigo hue topped by a loosely styled tunic top that skims the hips. Add a scarf with a jolt of color to brighten the face and draw the eye.
