Remember your teenage years? Depending on when you grew up, you could’ve taken on any number of appalling looks and precocious personalities.

Perhaps you were a goth. Or a punk. Or a metalhead. Preppy, emo, VSCO…the possibilities were (and are) endless!

And, thanks to the magic of photography, a lot of the photos from those years are still floating around. These folks were nice (and brave) enough to share their own photos of those cringe-worthy high school years…let’s take a look.
