Plunge into grunge
The '90s are back, baby, and they're bringing old-school grunge with them. We've got three so-easy ways to get retro rad...whether you're more casual cool, flirty femme or edgy chic. 


All choked up
These chokers are so chic they nearly bring a tear to our eye. Are you more gothic glam or delicate doll? We've got options for all kinds of gals.


Leader of the pack
School's back in session, which means you need the ultimate bag to tote around those textbooks. Haute hot pink, cool quilted leather, preppy plaid—we've got it all right here.


Dressing to code
The dress codes at Maggie Sunseri's school were crazy strict—and, frankly, pretty unfair to girls. This teen shares how she set out to break the rules by exposing the prejudiced policies for what they were.


Fast fashion
Meet the fall trends that go together ever better than burgers and fries. Get ready to dig into looks that serve up serious style.


Fall in with the fae
Dark lips, floral accessories, glimmering skin—it doesn't have to be Halloween for you to rock the evil fairy aura. It sounds a little spooky, but trust us: This look is absolutely spellbinding, no actual magic required.


Skai's the limit
Stylish Skai knows how to get killer curls *and* perfectly pin-straight tresses. Get all her secrets inside.


Wake up, flawless
It's all about that beauty sleep, babe—which pairs perfectly with fall's lazy-glam trends. We've got the easiest, edgiest looks for girls who just *can't* drag themselves out of bed.

Friendship *rules*
Treat others how you want to be treated, don't gossip, no copying. Scratch that—and every other friendship rule you thought you knew. The times, they are a-changin'... and so are all the guidelines for being a golden gal.


Sleeping beauty?
Most teens aren't getting the rest needed to reboot after a long day's work. But with all that homework and those after-school activities, what can you do? It's time to make a change, chica.


Burned, but beautiful
