Do you often wonder about the cool girls in your school and secretly wish you could be like one of them?
Do you feel left out among social circles just because you are not trendy like your peers?
If you answered yes to these questions then we have the perfect solution for you.
Teenage is the time to enjoy and live your life to the fullest while also to develop the personality that will make you unique in the future.
We will be discussing the three major parts you need to focus on to become a trendy teenager that is – self-grooming, attitude and your fashion statement.
1. Developing the Right Personality
It’s obvious that you’ll struggle with establishing self-identity and morality at this phase of life. But developing a strong personality to cope with your surrounding is now vital than ever.
So, let’s see what are the things that you need to focus on for developing the right personality.
Kindness and Respectful
Being trendy does not require you to become the next mean girl at your school. People seldom likes or respects someone who is not kind to others.
Be admired for being attentive and helpful to others. Respect everyone, be it young or old. It reflects your good upbringing and makes you shine.
Be Bold and Learn to Say ‘No’
It’s quite easy to be the “yes man” and get yourself into things that you might not do willingly.
If something does not feel right, speak up. Your ability to walk away from the negative things in life will help you develop a bold personality.
Develop self-worth through small steps like believing in yourself and your capabilities. Don’t allow someone’s criticism hurt you.
Be Attentive in Class
Your studies should be your first priority while you are at school. Pay attention to lectures and do your homework or assignments on time.
This will not only help you remain ahead of others but also make your teacher like you as a student.
Build Your Identity
Your identity is unique and only belongs to you. It is not something you copy from someone else you idealize.
Everyone has flaws and special abilities that bring out their individuality.
Accept yourself the way you are while adding good traits to your personality over time.
Remember, you can not and should even try to please others by being someone they want you to be. Let people love and respect you for being smart and confident.
Coping with the Changes
Teenage is a difficult time for everyone, especially girls who are bombarded with sudden changes.
Teen girls notice changes in their mental health, such as mood swings, anxiety, depression, or rebellious attitude.
On the physical side, young girls go through hormonal developments in their bodies that change their overall body shape.
Ask for Advice
During this crucial phase of their life, a girl should seek advice from parents, guardians, elder siblings and doctors to help them cope up with these changes and understand themselves better.
Parents should be aware of the Teenage Developmental Milestones to guide and support their children accordingly.
2. Self – Care And Grooming
You need to take care of your skin, hair and groom yourself properly in order to live a healthy teenage life.
If pimples, hair fall, rashes or wrong makeup sense is causing you stress, then here’s what you need to do.
Pay Attention to Your Health
Taking care of your health is fundamental to being fit and smart.
Don’t starve yourself to become like the models you see on TV or magazines.
However, avoid getting into obesity and neglecting your health. Either of them is undesirable and harmful for your developing body.
Keep yourself hydrated with clean water, make friends with fruits and veggies, and join a fitness club in your community if you can.
Personal Hygiene Is Essential
It’s simple and mandatory to remain clean and well groomed.
Take shower every day or even twice if you get sweaty. Apply deodorant after a shower to smell nice all day.
Brush your teeth twice a day to keep your teeth pearly white. A good smile adds to your personality.
Trim your nails and keep them polished.
Seek advice from your mother or a close friend on hair removal. There are various pain-free forms to remove the body and facial hair. Know what works best for you and maintain the routine.
Always wear a set of clean clothes and make sure you wash them regularly.
Your Skin is a Blessing, Take Care of It
During your early teens, you will be blessed with good and healthy skin. Realize the importance of natural beauty and take care of your delicate skin.
Avoid face bleach or any sort of harsh chemical that could harm your skin.
Learn about the various kinds of skin types such as dry, oily, sensitive, normal and combination skin.
Try to figure out which one is yours and adopt skincare products according to your skin.
Clean and moisturize your skin regularly to avoid acne and pimples, irrespective of your skin type.
Enhance Your Beauty with Makeup
You can begin experimenting and playing around with makeup during your teenage.
The purpose of makeup is to enhance your features, not to change them.
There are plenty of easy makeup tutorials online to help you start out.
You can start out with a few basic products such as lipstick/lip balm, mascara, black/brown eyeliner, a concealer to hide blemishes and a blush which is optional.
Wellness of Your Hair
Your hair is an important part of your beauty so don’t neglect them.
Apply nourishing oils during weekends to keep yours healthy and shiny.
Shampoo and condition your hair at least twice a week. Visit the salon for trimming your hair often.
Styling Your Hair
Teenage is the prime time for girls to experiment with new haircuts, hairdo, and hair colors.
Whatever you choose to do with your hair, don’t skimp on the basic hair care steps.
You would need to take extra care of your hair when you choose to bleach that strips off the natural oils of your hair.
Seek professional help when trying out something new because there is a high chance that you could ruin your hair in the process.
3. Style and Fashion
Well, it’s your time to be all trendy, colorful and to experiment with the new. That’s not bad at all. It’s normal for you to be conscious about your appearance at this age to make a statement.
Follow the tips below and get ready to stand out in the crowd.
Starting Out in The Fashion World
You don’t need to have the perfect wardrobe right away to fit in or keep up with others.
Being fashionable does not require you to get out of your comfort zone and wear outfits that make you look like a supermodel.
Of course, you could try being a little extra but since we assume you’re starting out in the world of fashion, it’s a good idea to stick to the fundamentals. That way you can never go wrong or be embarrassed by overdressing.
Go through Your Wardrobe
Make sure your wardrobe has all the essential garments you need.
Some of the things you should have but not limited to are a pair of classic jeans, black leggings, black or white shorts, solid colored plain tees, hoodies, tank, and crop tops as well.
You could also add other accessories to your wardrobe to make your outfit look put together.
Simple jewelry, a small clutch or purse or funky sunglasses could do the trick.
For shoes, try to keep your options open but not so much that you have to waste time picking the right one.
A couple of pair of ballet flats, boots, converse, flip flops or anything that flatters your wardrobe is a good collection.
Things You Should Avoid
You do not need to have a boyfriend of any sort to be a trendy teenager. Just because everyone else is getting into relationships at this age, you don’t have to.
Don’t get soaked up into materialism and spending the majority of your time online to make virtual friends.
Make a few good friends and hang out with them.
Avoid smoking, drinking or wrong acts at any cost. Don’t give in to peer pressure in the name of being cool.
And to add an old saying from your parents: don’t trust strangers.
Some Final Thoughts
Teenage is like a roller coaster of emotions and changes. During these years, an individual is preparing to become the person he or she will be for the rest of their life.
Invest your time and energy to build yourself into the person you really want to be.
Maintain a self-care routine, look after your physical and mental health, wear good clothes, develop your personality, focus on your education and voila! You will be trendy before you know.
It all depends on your perspective of what is “trendy”.
