This year is the year for teenage style. With the blogging site Tumblr growing more and more everyday, it wont be a surprise if everyone from your best friend to your favourite model join Tumblr by the end of the year. Social Networking sites allow the younger generation to showcase their sense of style and share it will others. The internet is a place where you can be whoever you want to be and can make many teenagers feel confidence to go out in what ever they want. The teenagers on such sites have a very clear image of what they want to wear. You have the totally fashion conscience that will reblog Rodarte and Versace, the grunge/urban blogs that reblog Nirvana tops and dip-dyed hair and the hipster, boho quality and any in between. Teenage years are all about finding yourself and experimenting before you have fully grown up and with school kids becoming more judgemental and bitchy, the internet can help the ones that feel out of place feel like they belong.
But it's not only teenagers that are getting inspiration from social networking sites. Many high-street stores and celebrities are picking up on the online trends making them mainstream. Jeffrey Campbell shoes where first discovered on Tumblr and now are copied by many online stores. Also 'creepers' were shown on almost every Tumblr page last year and now celebrities like Rihanna have been spotted wearing them. What before was original and something to be stared at is now fashion. So before you wait un till previews of your favourite stores new season collection, try looking at some teenage style blogs to inspire you and let you be ahead of the game, or even just to pass time.
My favourite Tumblr style inspirations include...
Lana Del Rey
Supermodels (Miranda Kerr, Chanel Iman, Daphne Groeneveld...)
