School’s out! Well almost. At this moment, teens across the country are cramming for final exams or procrastinating by dreaming about the summer. So before these petri dishes of style depart for a lakeside dock or part-time job at the mall, we took our street style camera to Toronto Northern Secondary School (alumni include actors Jonathan Keltz, Reign, Patrick J. Adams, Suits, O.C. mom Kelly Rowan and fashion designers Dean and Dan of Dsquared to name a few!) Today’s high schooler is connected 24/7, and in constant dialogue via phones that enable them to post, like, or tag. With inspirations that range from Jean Paul Gaultier to Lily-Rose Depp to Raven Symone, these stylish Northerners are as likely to get threads at Hot Topic as she is Aritzia and dads’ closet. From bucket hats and tie-die, to pencil skirts and florals, teens today prove that when it comes to street style at high school, there is no “right” way to dress, just their way to dress.
