18 Outfits to We Plan on Wearing to Class

#Academia #SmartGirls #BacktoCool

Whether you're hitting the lecture halls at uni or studying up in high school, we can all agree that the best part of back to school is the fashion, right?  For those of us who live and breathe all things sartorial, back to school is like our own personal fashion weekIt's all about expressing yourself and what you hope to accomplish for the year... better organizational skills?  Start with a cool set of co-ords.  Learning to destress and relax?  Keep it casual.  

This year is all about you and feeling comfortable in your own skin.  We'll be here for you (*prayer hands emoji*) throughout to provide inspiring essays and motivational interviews as always, and we're kicking it off with 18 outfits that you will totally catch us in this fall as the Couturesque family heads back to class.  So long, summer - it's been sweet.

Or if you'd rather not double down on denim, try it in a skirt form instead.  Midi is the new mini.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
