To the surprise of many, this look isn’t as new as it seems. Besides the fact that it was the norm for American housewives and teenage girls in the ’40s, pairing thigh-baring hosiery with heels has been popular amongst Harajuku girls in Japan for years. In recent seasons, the trend has been spotted all over the runways of such designers as Miu Miu, Wunderkind and Peter Jensen.

Enter: Teens Turning Green skin-care line, for that teenage girl in everyone’s lives.
