From the girls on "The Facts Of Life" to Sarah Michelle Gellar in "Cruel Intentions" and now Taylor Swift in "The Story of Us," the school girl chic look doesn't ever seem to go away. FYI, Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry and Marc Jacobs are all designing pieces with the signature checkered look. Want to put your own ensemble together? A tie is essential. You can't go wrong with J. Crew. (They have a huge selection in various colors for about $50.) Or maybe you can strike gold at a vintage store and grab a skirt, like these at DeBois Textiles in Pigtown for $10-$12. Fish out those knee-high white stockings from the bottom of your drawers and a pair of loafers from your closet, and the look is complete. You don't want to look like you'e dressing for a Halloween party, so pair the school girl elements with something contemporary such as a military jacket for that chic look. Find the J.Crew ties at your local J. Crew store for $50. Find the vintage wool skirts for $10-$12 at DeBois Textiles Inc., 1835 Washington Blvd. Call 410-837-8081.
