A Reddit user posed the following question to teens of Reddit: “What’s cool nowadays?” And the teens of Reddit certainly did not disappoint.

Kids are also really into grunge today. The 70’s to us = the 90’s to them. Kind of a terrifying thought.

GRUNGE-2

GRUNGE

Again with the eyebrows, in London this time. Also kids still like to get away with wearing the least amount of clothing possible. No surprise there.
