Remember when the milk tea business was booming? Well, picture yourself in that long line of customers at Happy Lemon, eyeing the menu and deciding which flavor to get upon reaching the counter. Finally, it’s your turn, but apart from what you’re ordering, the cashier asks you that all-important question: What’s the sugar level?
The same can be asked of our teen stars today. All pretty faces and with very promising careers ahead of them, each has an individual sense of style that we can categorize via the amount of sweetness their image lets on. Julia Barretto, Sofia Andres, Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano, and Janella Salvador are all darlings of the crowd, but when it comes to dressing up, some of these young ladies go on a full sugar rush while others prefer a hint of spice. Read on for the full spectrum.
Sugar Level: None
At least not anymore. The recent debutante’s #OOTDs went from girly to edgy a few months before she became of legal age. If the Mirabella star was somewhere in the 50% range before, she's traded in her floral dresses and skater skirts for cropped tops and high-waisted bottoms. She’s really a baby no longer!
Sugar Level: 25%
This fresh-faced beauty finds comfort in a pair of joggers and cool kicks. You may see Sofia Andres occasionally donning heels and wearing matte pink lipstick, but when she’s not busy being an artista, she’s a laidback cool girl who only wants to enjoy a sunny day out in her sneakers.
Sugar Level: 50%
She’s called Teen Queen for a reason. We’ve seen Kathryn Bernardo pull off all things pastel and also rock a badass #OOTD. Turning 19 this month, she’s proven that she can go outside her comfort zone and strike the perfect balance between sweet and edgy.
Sugar Level: 75%
This doe-eyed Barbie skyrocketed to primetime not only because of her obvious talent but also for her spell-binding beauty. She has a natural charm that resonates with her style—subtle yet sinfully sweet. Keeping it dainty yet classy, Liza Soberano’s go-to style equation includes clean lines, a classic ‘do, and a pair of pointy-toed pumps.
Sugar Level: 100%
Sugar? Yes, please! The word “kikay” was probably invented for this sweet young thing, because for Janella Salvador, cotton candy tulle skirts rule the style department. Her all-pink ensembles are an instant sugar rush. The total teenybopper!
