The Skater Girl look became popular around 2002 with the rise of punk pop singer Avril Lavigne. The style is a mixture of skater, punk and surfer fashion. Young women associated with the look besides Lavigne include singers Fefe Dobson, Teyana Taylor and Ashlee Simpson. The style incorporates fitted pieces along with baggy trousers and hoodies. Skater shoes, no heels, or dress shoes bring this casual look full circle.
