Fashion’s Young IT Girls

Zendaya, Malia Obama, and Amandla Stenberg all have quite a few things in common.  They are all young women of color in the spotlight, they are expressive, innovative teenagers, and they create their own fashion lanes – just our types of girls! 

Recently named three of Time Magazine’s 30 most influential teens of 2015, these hipsters are setting trends and taking names.  Their styles are original and age-appropriate, and they know how to catch their audience’s eye without forcefully trying.  

Let’s jump right into the proceedings so that we can show you why Zendaya, Malia, and Amandla are the IT Girls of fashion.

The school girl ensemble never looked so suave!  Zendaya nailed this all grey look with the pleated dress, patent leather knee-high boots, trench coat and leather book bag.

All plaid is a tricky look to pull off but not for Zendaya.  This plaid two-piece outfit is a fun look to sport.  The full skirt gives off a modern vibe, and the white shoes add a chic feel.

Zendaya always seems to get the androgynous look right.  This tailored pinstripe suite screams fashion!  Zendaya added the perfect amount of femininity to this masculine look.  We love it!

We pledge allegiance to this look!  Amandla made all kinds of statements wearing this American Flag sweater with the American Flag draped over her shoulders.  Her studded boots gave this outfit just the right amount of flare.

Prints and solids are difficult to coordinate but not if you are Amandla!  This look puts us in a 60s mind frame.  It is vintage and classic.  The star of this entire look is the purse!  A nice purse can take an outfit from cool to dope!

Baby doll socks and red leather Mary Jane shoes are considered fashion?  Yes, if you rock like Amandla Stenberg!  This adorable look makes us melt.  It’s age-appropriate and bold at the same time.

Move over President Obama, your daughter is clearly the star!  We love how all of these girls play with colors.  Matching this gold skirt with navy blue gave Malia’s outfit pizzazz.

Pretty in hot pink!  Malia gracefully glides in this cutesy lace, A-line dress.  It’s simple enough for a regular day yet dressy enough for a White House event.

It seems that Malia loves to throw a brown or gold color in the mix with her blues, and we applaud it.  This preppy look will standout on any college campus and rightfully so. 

We are proud of these young women for establishing their own styles and being themselves.  We look forward to seeing how their fashion evolves over the years.  Go girls!
