When I was way younger (in the 80’s), I fondly remember celebrating my older cousins’ sixteenth Birthdays. No doubt movies such as Sixteen Candles were an influence.

However, by the 90’s when I got to the age of 16, I don’t remember going to any 16th’s for friends or family. It’s almost like we just didn’t care enough. It seems to me that we have we spent many years ignoring turning 16. I mean, it is a time when you become a young adult – you can work, get your licence and your parents expect you to talk back as you have some severe anger issues and mood swings!

But the good news is that Sweet Sixteenths are back and looking a lot classier than I remember. Let’s take a look at the reinvention of the Sweet Sixteen, Instagram style!
