"Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" stars Meaghan Martin and Chloe Bridges took a break from doing press in New York City last week to do a little shopping. The duo check out some of the latest styles and shared with AP what styles they're into.
"I am obsessed with back-to-school shopping," said Chloe. "I would circle everything I liked and dog-ear the catalogs." Meaghan added, "I would be all dressy and then, by the last day of school, I'd be in sweats."
Meaghan isn't a big shopper but shared, "when I shop, I REALLY shop!" So what fashions are the girls into?
"I take trends with a grain of salt," Meaghan says. "Last fall, we were told that skinny jeans were out, but I didn't stop wearing them." Chloe likes to wear heels and dress it up a bit more. "I feel uncomfortable in a sweatshirt. How ironic is that?"

Check out more of Meaghan and Chloe's Q&A below. What fashion trends do you think are "in" this year?
Do you like to wear basic black or bright colors?
Black - and white - for Martin, maybe with a little salmon or orange thrown in; and Bridges prefers neutral tones of khaki and olive.
Stripes or plaid?
Stripes, definitely. Both of them.
Leather or denim jacket?
Bridges has dilemma with leather jackets: Every time she thinks she finds the perfect one, she'll find another one that's even better. On this day, however, she goes home with a jean jacket in her bag.
Martin would rather wear a boyfriend blazer - and that's just what she bought.
Flip-flops or sneakers?
"Do sandals count?" asks Bridges. Back in high school in New Orleans, she allows, she wore white Keds.
Martin likes dressier, leather flip-flops, not plastic ones - and Sperry Top-Siders.
Messenger bag or backpack?
Messenger bags, for sure. Bridges says she carried the same black one throughout high school. Martin had one, too, but switched to a leather tote somewhere along the line.
Preppy or skater?
At Martin's school in Las Vegas, the skater look was more popular than preppy, although her self-described "granny" style fit in better with the preps.
Bridges was preppy until she tried to make the switch to Vans and OP when she moved to California. "It didn't work out so well," she says with a smile.
