What the hell is going on.

It has recently come to our attention that teens these days are...cooler than we had ever hoped to be.

how teen celebs dressed when i was growing up vs how they dress now

So we decided to investigate. And basically, life is really unfair. Let's take a look:

1. Back in our day...trucker hats were in.

4. And matching your trucker hat to your corset with your jeans tucked into your boots? 100% encouraged and praised.

5. Studded belts were an absolute must. As were graphic tees and those black bracelets you bought from Hot Topic.
