7 TV Shows with the Most Unrealistic Teen Wardrobes
When did teenagers on TV shows [and in movies] stop dressing like actual teenagers?
I know that TV shows aren’t real life — hell, most TV teens are played by 27-year-olds — but let’s not act like the average teen show isn’t trying to mirror real life to some extent.

Shows from the ’90s, like Boy Meets World, had flannel galore, and the early to mid ’00s, like Lizzie McGuire, Ned’s Declassified and The O.C. were full of the most ridiculous hair accessories and low-rise boot-leg jeans. But lately? It’s been harder and harder to actually find TV shows that reflect what teenagers are actually wearing right now.
