This week on City News Style File, it smells like teen spirit. It feels like 21st century kids are going to start a new fashion movement before they are even done with high school.
With teen fashion blogs like Sea of Shoes and Style Rookie being touted as the fashionistas of tomorrow, City News also looks to Singapore youth to uncover true street style.
Korean Christopher Oh is instantly eye-catching. Who can miss his Pantone chart of a tee? This 17-year-old’s overall appeal can be expressed in one word: Neat. His eco-friendly bag (which he owns in different styles) gives him a quirky edge to his otherwise pristine style.

Nothing looks cuter than this pinafore dress on 15-year-old Rachel Lim. She is living proof that one should dress for one’s age. This Methodist Girl’s School student tells City News that her mother got her the dress (great choice, Rachel’s mom!) Her clean and unfussy look is the sure way to go for any teen who’s fresh 15.

Nicolas Ghesquiere’s floral dress for Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2007 collection was such a major hit, floral prints and dresses remain summer essentials even today. Gwendolyn Tan, 17, is clad in a mini floral dress — a wise choice for Singapore’s humid weather. Just slip on a couple of bangles or a char bracelet and necklace like Gwendolyn, and you are ready to go!
