I Had A Teenager Dress Me For A Week And This Is What Happened

Kids these days…

Everyone knows teenagers are society’s tastemakers — they decide what is or isn’t cool, and that is no more apparent than with fashion. I mean, just look at Willow and Jaden Smith at this year’s Met Gala:

Then there’s me: I’m 25, and while I’m no slob by any means, I doubt any of my outfits would earn Anna Wintour’s nod of approval.

I'm a shorts-and-T-shirt type of guy, and I am a *BIG* proponent of wearing athletic wear in non-athletic situations (aka “athleisure”).

But what if I, a decided non-teen, were to dress like a teen for a week? While I didn’t have access to Willow or Jaden (or even Kylie Jenner, who’s too busy brewing up lip kits in Calabasas), I DID have a teen of my very own: my 19-year-old sister, Grace.

Grace's thoughts before the experiment: “Before this project, Sam had a pretty good style. He dresses every day as if he is ready for an Instagram. However, he can sometimes be a little outdated, but not by much. Sometimes he thinks his style is up-to-date just because he knows what's going on with the Kardashians. There are a couple of staple pieces that I want him to try that are currently popular.”
