Think back to your personal style as a teen and a few distinct brand names probably come to mind — either you were a ride-or-die Limited Too fan or you were more of a mall goth wearing head-to-toe Hot Topic. You might cringe at your outfit decisions, but at the same time, you'll probably always hold a special place in your heart for the brands you used to obsess over. Whatever your awkward-phase uniform was, it carries its own meaning (and memories) about that specific time in your life, no matter how hilarious it looks now.
Your style has probably changed a bit since then (rubber bracelets and baby tees just don't quite hold the same appeal). Regardless, the 15 names ahead should be on your radar. You'll love them for the same reasons you fell in love with your fave mall brand, but each one offers wares that are more suited to your life today.
Read on for the grown-up versions of your favorite throwback brands and prepare to find your new obsession.
