First Day Of High-School Outfits For Any Dress Code

As a substantial number of our readers are in high school themselves (hi, guys!), we asked Emma, blogger of The Emma Edition and a connoisseur of all things teenager-y (she’s 16!), to educate us on fashion as relevant to high-schoolers and beyond.
We all get the back-to-school jitters—getting new class schedules, navigating the classrooms, not to mention all the pressures involved with making good first impressions on our new classmates, teachers, and potential friends. But there’s always something electrifying about it, too. It’s not too much time for most of us that school will finally open its doors to the student body, meaning it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear. Whichever end of the style spectrum your school subscribes to (uniforms or otherwise), these outfits will combat any of your first-day sartorial struggles.
