Um...Let's Take A Look At How We Dressed As Teens Compared To How They Dress Now

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.
