Today’s Printable Paper Doll Inspirations:Fashion from When I Graduated High School

As a lot of you know, I grew up in Alaska. I love my home state and I miss it all the time. Alaska is both totally unique and totally beautiful. It will always be my home, but when it come to fashion, Alaska isn’t exactly cutting edge. In fact, it always took a while for styles to filter there way up the 49th state.

So, Julie of Paper Doll School, Boots of Popculture Looking Land, Miss Missy of Miss. Missy’s Paper Dolls and I decided on drawing a paper doll outfit from the year each of us graduate high school for the Collaborative Paper Doll 2017 Project. I graduated in 2003 and this is what I remember girls wearing.

I have no idea if it really is what was in style in 2003 is the point I am trying to make.

What I remember from that era (nearly 15 years ago which is crazy) is that the jeans were low rise and boot cut. The shirt were shorter and had tight sleeves. The shoes were heavy chunky boots.

These are all the things I recall from my high school years and I decided to include them in today’s paper doll outfit celebrating the year I graduated high school back in 2003.

By the way, I feel like I should add that while I drew this paper doll outfit, I am in no way nostalgic for high school. There’s basically no force on this planet that would make me want to return to that period of my life. Seriously.

  1. I didn’t quite realize what babies you all are-I graduated in 1970! haha! Seriously, though, these clothes make me think of my daughters’ high school years. Very cool, thanks!
