Back-to-school is quickly approaching, and with it, back-to-school clothes shopping. My teenage daughter sends me emails containing her clothing wish list, which is burgeoning with an assortment of babydoll dresses and maxi skirts and skinny jeans and boots and leggings and cardigans. Variety!
This made me think about teen boy clothes — and I have to admit I couldn’t muster an image of what teen boys are wearing to school these days. My guess would be t-shirts with jeans, or maybe occasionally jeans with t-shirts.
And yet there seems to be a flurry of extremely successful teen boy celebrities hitting the red carpet and the stage lately — and they don’t necessarily look like the boy next door. So I turned to a team of professional trend watchers to select ten things every teen boy should wear to get the girl — which means I asked my daughter and her friends.
