Daily Soup / / / Post Classical School Girl
No it’s not the 70’s and 80’s with Kelly Kapowski or Molly Ringwald, it’s not the 90’s with Clueless and Britney Spears, it’s not the thousands either with awkward crop tops, terrible cornrows, and teenage heart throbs, it’s a new era of teenage-girl-ism. The spring look book from WILDFOX, inspired by Clueless, reminded me that no matter how much we wish that we could go back to a time where wearing neon was acceptable and valley girls were appreciated - but we all know that that will not be happening anytime soon (I’m talking to you justice). I realized that we are, in history terms, in the post classical age of the general teenage school girl. Let’s face it, only so many movies can be made about the shy girl behind the locker, braces, and 4-eyes becoming the talk of the town and getting the star quarterback, the time is over for these cliches.
