The life of a teen is filled with lots of stress. Through these pivotal high school years, decisions need to be made. “Where am I going to college? How are my grades progressing? That boy I’ve had my eye on, is he the one? Oh, my appearance.” The daily grind of a young lady begins in the morning. Looking your best takes work. Once that work is accomplished, many of us like to show off our outfit of the day to our friends and family on social media with the hashtag #ootd.

Teen Fashion Tips and Trends

How many of us are familiar with celebrities such as Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale? Browse through some of the 75 most prolific outfits from the popular television series and “look the part.” You can steal their style anytime you like!
Dance the Day Away
Some trends disappear into the night and never come back. That’s not the case with harem pants. Not familiar with this style? The harem look is all about the pants that will sit high on your waist, become baggy at your thighs, and taper as they travel down your legs. If Hip-Hop is your dance of choice, these pants are perfect. The room around your waist and thighs allows for movement, yet they are tight around the ankles and knees which complements the Hip-Hop dance movements. Even better, these pants can be worn off the dance floor as well. They are great for a Saturday afternoon out with the girls, or for lounging in between dance sessions.
