The prevalent “high teen” aesthetic in K-Pop has become exceedingly popular in the genre over the last few years.
According to Korea Joongang Daily, it’s influenced by American youth fashion in the 1990s to early 2000s and may recall the same youthful and preppy aesthetic of movies such as “Mean Girls” and “Clueless.”
Many 3rd and 4th gen idols have dabbled with the concept, rocking crop tops, plaid, and bright colors.
Often viewed as a more “youthful” style, it’s more common for the newer generations of K-Pop to try the style — That’s why it shocked fans when a 2nd gen girl group member pulled off the look flawlessly!
Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon is shocking fans with her eternally youthful visuals and ability to rock “high teen” looks with ease!
Sporting a preppy look, her plaid skirt pairs perfectly with her white shirt, tie, and cardigan.
Specifically, netizens couldn’t believe how Taeyeon can rock a look that is most commonly worn by teenagers and not look the slightest bit out of place!
- “Too pretty… Taeyeon unnie, I love you… you look like a 4th gen idol”
- “Crazy… she looks like a 4th gen idol doing high teen….”
- “Freaking pretty”
