Back To School: Cool Fashions For Teen, Tween Girls

"You go to school to learn, not for a fashion show." -- "Parents Just Don't Understand"

Sorry, Will Smith's mama, the hallway sorta is the ultimate runway. And we're not talking the place to show off super expensive designer duds. Clothing and accessories are a way for teenagers to express themselves, experiment with new personas and just have fun. Here's a look at some of the cool styles for teens and tweens this back to school season.

Just a bit of advice: Take it from Smith and stay away from a shirt that is plaid with a butterfly collar and please put back the bell-bottom "Brady Bunch" trousers. Now, pull out the plastic. There's shopping to do.
