Is it just me, or are a lot of parents today dressing their kids WAY better than our parents dressed us? Perhaps there were limited options for parents raising their kids in the eighties and nineties. Clothes for children used to look like they were designed specifically for children. Today, styles are so versatile that there are kids out there wearing nothing but the latest trends. And let’s face it – the little whippersnappers are looking better than most adults.
Yes. I do feel a bit slighted. But when I think about how people actually looked back then, I’m thankful my mom didn’t opt to have my hair permed. Super glad I didn’t own anything with shoulder pads (βάτες – in Greek…what a great word) in it.
I can’t know for sure where these parents are getting their inspiration from. For all I know, these kids are picking out their own clothes – and their parents have nothing to do with their style. But the resemblance to certain celebrities is uncanny. For instance:
Totally Sia. Next.
Is the little girl Bjork? Or, is Bjork the little girl?
Kurt Cobain. Perfect. Onward.
Patrick Carney. Swaggin’ it up.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Dapper as hell.
So self-indulgent, I know. Moving right along…this little guy…
And Keanu Reeves. I mean, they’re the same.
My first thought was: Jim James, My Morning Jacket. But then this worked much better.
Carey Mulligan. The hairstyle, the vintage look. Dig it.
Janis Joplin. I enjoy bell bottoms. Little lady in the photo wears ’em well.
Even Slash was a little kid once.
Is this Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani’s kid? If so, it’s no real surprise that the look conjures up images of Billy Idol and his famous sneer.
Speaking of Patrick Carney, this video from The Black Keys probably planted the seed for this post when I first saw it last spring. Check it out. It’s fun.
