Teenage Style Challenge

Here's the good and the bad news about being a teenager: it doesn't last forever. As teens, transitioning from childhood to adulthood, our sartorial styles, more often than not, go through a transformation just as we do.

Luckily, we can look back on these phases with a mixture of humor and affection. Sometimes.

What did you dress like as a teenager?

Were you a nerd? A prep? A goth? What weird fashion trends did you embrace that you wish you hadn't?

Tell us a story of who you were back then. If you're still a teenager, describe how your dress sense has changed since you were a kid.

You can also upload photos below. You don't have to––this can be as anonymous as you want.

If we publish your story, it will show up on our website and may be linked to by other pages. So do your best!
