The Collab Gen-Z Needed: H&M x Netflix’s Sex Education
Updated: Feb 15

“It's one of Netflix's most-streamed series since its premiere. Why? Its vibrant lead characters (whom we absolutely adore), the awkward moments, the important subjects, the complicated relationships, the female empowerment. It's everything relatable.”
H&M’s description of Netflix’s Sex Education says it all. With its witty dialogue, inclusive cast and impeccable fashion, Sex Ed has risen its way to the top of Netflix’s charts. The show follows a 16-year-old boy named Otis, who is the son of a radical and cool sex therapist (portrayed by the famous Gillian Anderson). Otis takes the lessons he has learned through living with his mom to open a sex clinic at his school, where he gives out hilarious yet relatable sex advice to high school students. Ranked as 6th on Netflix’s Currently Popular section, this quirky teen dramedy has something for everybody.
Thankfully, H&M has answered our back-to-school fashion prayers by collaborating with Sex Ed to create an Americana campus collection. The collaboration is chock full of sweater vests, varsity jackets, mom jeans, trendy accessories and graphic tees based on the show. Everything you need for your grand fashion debut on your campus can be found with this 53 piece collection. Take a look below to see our five favorite pieces!
1. Vintage High Rise Mom Jeans
What says back to school better than a high-quality pair of mom jeans? These jeans hold that timeless yet vintage style that can match with any school t-shirt, sweatshirt, or tank. Sex Ed’s retro yet trendy style matches this classic piece to the tee and is a staple in any wardrobe.
2. Complex Female Characters Crewneck
Inspired by the sarcastic, spunky and smart character Maeve Wiley from Sex Ed, this crewneck depicts her perfectly. In Season 1, a boy hits on Maeve by asking her what her interests are. She responds with, “complex female characters.” This crewneck showcases that catchphrase on the front and back, with an edgy font and funky graphic design that evokes her punk spirit.
3. Chunky Silver Chain
Looking for that perfect simplistic yet bold statement necklace that can be worn with almost every outfit? This chunky silver chain may just be your new favorite! The short double chain with an adjustable clasp makes this necklace perfect for a minimalistic pop of style.
4. Moordale Dolphins Varsity Jacket
Did you also have a crush on the dreamy jock Jackson Marchetti from Sex Ed? Did you fantasize about him giving you his letterman jacket? Well, H&M has got you covered. This felted varsity jacket with embroidered Moordale Dolphins appliqué fits all of your desires for that vintage athletic style.
5. I Don’t Do Boyfriends Corduroy Bucket Hat
This final piece is once again inspired by the adored Maeve Wiley. One of her favorite sayings, “I don’t do boyfriends” is embroidered on this quirky corduroy bucket hat in a vibrant blue. Made from soft cotton with an inside sweatband, this bucket hat is not only fashionable but comfortable as well.
