Street Style: High School High

October 04, 2012 BY CAPSULESNEWS

Remember what you wore in high school? Believe it or not, the teens of today know all about it. With the help of Tumblr, old photos of past movie stars, musicians, athletes, and models have resurfaced and influence young America today. As much as King James, Hov, and Ye influence teens, the clever and eclectic crowd of youngsters clamor to those that have come before today's idols. 70s bell bottoms reintroduced bootcut jeans, the 80s slim silhouette helped usher a new wave of skinny jeans, and now 90s pop culture icons serve as the central influence for these youngsters. Click through our street style gallery of the best dressed high schoolers to see how Biggie, Jordan, Seattle's grunge wave, Marvel and DC Comics, and even Yoshi from Super Mario Bros play a part in the styles of young America.
