Let’s Count Down the Top Teen Trends for Spring 2017!
The seasons have changed and so have the teen trends! Bye-bye Pumpkin Spice Lattes, bulky sweaters and UGGs. Say hello to warmer days, hot Netflix shows and must-have products.
13 Reasons Why
This release took Netflix viewers by surprise. This edgy, dark and addictive drama, based on a novel of the same name by Jay Asher, first caught audiences attention before it’s release because of it’s executive producer. Selena Gomez played no starring role in the film but took on the project as executive producer and did an amazing job.
Why is this so hot? Because it is relatable. Bullying, teen suicide, insecurities and peer pressure are all part of the typical high school environment. We gravitate to what we find familiar. Though disturbing, we are captivated by the dark and gut wrenching scenes.
This series raises awareness of the lack of communication that often leads someone to take their own lives. The performances are so real, touching and heart breaking and also deliver a very valuable message that everyone should hear.
This newly released film is the perfect teen drama/romance/comedy filled with unexpected twists and turns. Hint – nothing is as it seems. I recently had the pleasure of seeing this film and I was surprisingly blown away. This is now one of my all-time favourite movies. It’s definitely a must-see. There were some hilarious, touching and emotional moments throughout the film that truly had me on an emotional rollercoaster.
If you want to feel inspired, love romances, or simply want to feel a deep connection to some incredible characters, then go buy a ticket, sit down, and enjoy the film ASAP!
This series is a completely updated version of the Archie Comics characters. This teen drama has it all: twists, turns, shocking events, and a dark Riverdale that has no resemblance to the comic books.
Superior acting skills are at an all time high and the characters themselves are igniting trends throughout the teenage community. See my recent post on how to obtain the Betty Cooper look and stay tuned for more similar articles to be released here soon!
When I first starting paying attention to the fidget spinner trend, I honestly didn’t get the lure. It seemed like nothing more than another silly fad and for the most part, a major time waster. After further I research, I now see the true benefit of these spinning little toys.
For some people, fidget spinners provide a great sense of comfort and relaxation after challenging day at school, during homework sessions or other stressful situations.Some people claim these are wonderful therapeutic aids for people with ADHD or ADD. These are also just fun toys – you can learn some pretty cool tricks too! Fidget spinners come in many different styles, shapes and colours and can be purchased on Amazon for less than $10 CAD.
PopSockets are a major hit lately for a very valuable and important reason. If you are addicted to your phone as much as I am, then you also know the struggles of the strain inflicted upon your poor fingers and wrists if you hold your phone for a long period of time. Do you ever find yourself trying to lean your phone up against a coffee cup, a book or even a beauty blender (been there, done that, doesn’t work) ? I end up in this situation every time I want to watch my fave YouTuber but also do my makeup, homework or the dreaded feat of painting my nails. No more of that nonsense!
PopSockets, one of the biggest teen trends, are the perfect stand for your phone, are adjustable to fit you fingers when taking a selfie, and decrease the amount of times you drop your phone too! These are the best things to hit the tech accessories world in a long time! There are hundreds of affordable styles to choose from too.
DIY’ing your clothes by ironing on patches has become one of the most popular teen trends of the season. It is an extremely inexpensive way to take a plain pair of shoes, a t-shirt, shorts (the list is endless) and take it to a whole new level.
Patches can come in SO many different styles, shapes, and sizes. Being able to customize and personalize your clothing, specifically with Rose Patches, is all the rage. For a full tutorial, check out Laurdiy’s video and then order your patches and get started!
Instagram Face Filters:
Instagram has been getting major love lately (and a bit of heat) for their new Story Feature… face filters! The consensus circulating right now is that Snapchat, the first app to feature face filters, is going to have to step up their game or step out of the social media world altogether.
I personally have been using Instagram stories now more than Snapchat for all the new features being added, face filters aside.
