Top 10 Preteen Fun Fashions of 2017

10. International Junior Miss Arizona Preteen 2017, Mckenzi Lindhag 

Mckenzi Lindhag's fun fashion outfit during the International Junior Miss pageant stood out from the rest because of its unique design. The pop art design on Lindhag's skirt is both eye-catching and youthful. Her dress is trendy and age-appropriate, making it perfect for the Preteen division. The colors on Lindhag's dress make her pop on stage! Red is an attention-grabbing color and yellow is a bright color that isn't seen frequently on contestants with blonde hair and fair complexions. Although the stage is white, the skirt stands out against the dark portions behind it, preventing Lindhag from fading into the background.

9. USA National Miss Ohio Preteen 2017, Ashley Black 

The fun fashion competition at USA National Miss always showcases some of the best outfits in all age divisions. Ashley Black was just one Preteen contestant at the USA  National Miss pageant who wowed the audience with her fun fashion outfit. The silhouette of Black's outfit is truly stunning! The floral overskirt adds a ton of movement on stage and makes her overall look playful. The ruffled train and blinged out belt add a nice touch of glam to this outfit. Styling is something that should never be forgotten during any portion of a pageant. Black clipped her hair away from her face, preventing it from clashing with the eye-catching overskirt and hot pink fabric.

8. Royal International Miss Georgia Preteen 2017, Rylee Ruegger 

Rylee Ruegger's fun fashion outfit at the Royal International Miss pageant features so many fun elements that make it one of the best in 2017. The textured top is a bold look, so wearing it in white made it attention-grabbing without being overbearing. The polka-dot overskirt ties this outfit together like a bow, literally. This unique print ensured that Ruegger stood out to the judges. The combination of the polka-dot print and the bow keeps this two-piece look appropriate for the Preteen division.

7. Royal International Miss West Virginia Preteen 2017, Olivia Travis 

The Preteen division at Royal International Miss had many strong contestants who shined throughout the pageant, especially during the fun fashion competition. Olivia Travis' fun fashion outfit is noteworthy because of her bold color choice and unique overskirt. Turquoise was the perfect color choice for Travis! Not only is this color youthful and bright, but it complements her dark brown hair beautifully. Rather than using a solid colored fabric, Travis used crinoline to construct her overskirt. This created fun movement on stage and adds depth to the outfit.

6. International Junior Miss South Texas Preteen 2017, Brianna Hearon 

Brianna Hearon put the fun back in fun fashion with this look! The color combination and printed fabric keep this outfit glamorous and youthful without making it overpowering. Black and white is a classic color combination, so adding hot pink into the mix makes Hearon look like Barbie's modern little sister. This pop of color ensures that this fun fashion outfit is age-appropriate for the Preteen division since black and white is a more sophisticated combination. In addition, hot pink looks lovely against Hearon's blonde hair.

5. Pure International Preteen 2017, Emma Moore 

Keeping a fun fashion outfit age-appropriate for the Preteen division can be quite the challenge, but Emma Moore did so perfectly. Although this is a two-piece outfit, almost none of her mid-drift is showing, which is ideal for a Preteen contestant. In addition, the floral panel on her top keeps this strapless neckline on the more appropriate side. Floral print has been popping up everywhere in pageantry, from evening gowns to swimsuits to fun fashion outfits. Moore's outfit features eye-catching blue roses that make her outfit both stylish and unique. To prevent this print from overpowering other aspects of her outfit, the print is limited to the underneath of her skirt, which adds a pop of fun to the overall look.

4. USA National Preteen 2017, Gabriela Norwood 

Gabriela Norwood's fun fashion outfit at USA National Miss wowed the judges and earned her a national title! Both the color and the silhouette make this outfit eye-catching and unique. Red is a color that truly makes a contestant pop on stage, and Norwood is no exception. It stands out well against the stage and looks lovely against Norwood's skin tone and hair color. Norwood is another Preteen contestant who was able to choose an age-appropriate fun fashion outfit. The combination of shorts with a high-neckline makes this outfit perfect for a younger contestant. The two chiffon capes off of each shoulder definitely brought a ton of moment to the USA National Miss stage.

3. American Royal Beauties Preteen 2017, Tarissa Suchecki 

Tarissa Suchecki looked pretty in pink during the 2017 American Royal Beauties pageant. Her fun fashion look is just the right combination of playful and glamorous, and you can tell how confident she feels in it by the smile on her face! It should come as no surprise that Suchecki took home the national title. Yet again, we see a fun fashion that stands out among the rest because of the unique silhouette. The sweetheart neckline keeps this outfit playful and is often seen on younger contestants. The layered skirt, combined with an overskirt, brings depth, texture and movement to the stage.

2. Miss Oregon Jr. High 2017, Marin Gray 

It can sometimes be challenging to stand out in a fun fashion competition since every contestant is trying to achieve the same thing. However, Marin Gray did so with ease! Green is one color that isn't always seen during pageants, so Gray instantly became memorable when she stepped out in this outfit. Gray combined an embellished bodice, feathered skirt and emerald overskirt for her fun fashion outfit. The various textures included in her dress added both depth and moment to the Miss Jr. High America stage.

1. Miss USA Ambassador Preteen 2017, Emma Marie Cook 

After seeing this fun fashion outfit, it should come as no surprise that Emma Marie Cook won the title of Miss USA Ambassador Preteen 2017 and the top spot on this list. The overskirt is a popular choice during a fun fashion competition since it creates movement on stage. However, Cook kept her outfit unique because of the chic color combination she selected. Cook chose a pastel pink and metallic gold outfit to wear during the fun fashion competition. Not only do these colors complement each other, but they look lovely against Cook's tan skin and blonde hair. By having solid, metallic gold fabric on the underside of her skirt, Cook ensured that her outfit would be glamorous and eye-catching.

Top 10 Teen Fun Fashions of 2017

10. Miss Teen Legacy US 2017, Amaya Miranda Gregory

Amaya Miranda Gregory's outfit is the perfect combination of trendy, sophisticated and flirty. The flower appliqués and chunky heels are HUGE in fashion right now, showing that Gregory is dialed into the trends! The red shoes and accessories provide a pop of color for an otherwise dark outfit. Her half-up ponytail hairstyle gives a fun and flirtatious vibe to keep the ensemble looking young and age-appropriate.

9. International Junior Miss Illinois Teen 2017, Haleigh Goodman

International Junior Miss Illinois Teen 2017, Haleigh Goodman, went with a trendy jumpsuit with an attached flowing chiffon skirt. Goodman's plunging neckline makes this look a little more mature. The jumpsuit features a sequin pattern that helps draw the judges' eyes straight to Goodman. The fabric of the skirt gives her the opportunity for outfit movement with little effort. The black shoes round out the outfit and keet the line from her hip to her foot continuous instead of cutting her off at the ankle.

8. International Junior Miss Maryland Teen 2017, Ardelle Dickerson 

International Junior Miss Maryland Teen 2017, Ardelle Dickerson, stunned the judges in Nashville last summer at the International Junior Miss preliminary competition. This gold romper features incredible details in the geometric pattern and an attached tulle skirt. The halter neckline allows Dickerson to keep the modesty of a Teen while still being trendy and fashion-forward. The flowing skirt gives her the opportunity to add some dimension to her modeling routine. The simple accessories with this outfit keep all attention on Dickerson as opposed to going over the top. The nude shoes make her look long and statuesque, perfect for the fun fashion modeling competition!

6. Miss Teen Galaxy 2018, Misha Grimes

Miss Teen Galaxy 2018, Misha Grimes stepped out in such a unique look for the Miss Teen Galaxy pageant. It is so unusual to see a long-sleeved high-low dress on the stage, but we're definitely here for it! The red details give just enough color to this silver dress to keep it from fading into the background. The red belt hits Grimes at her smallest part, accentuating her figure. The high neckline keeps this dress looking modest and age-appropriate. Grimes' red earrings pull the attention up by adding color around her face.

5. USA National Miss Massachusetts Jr. Teen 2017, Emma Smith-Benzan

USA National Miss Massachusetts Jr. Teen 2017, Emma Smith-Benzan, went for a daring and girly look at this year's USA National Miss national pageant. This high-low dress is made even more unique with the paisley print fabric and blue and white colors. The high v-cut neckline keeps this look girly and modest, perfect for a Jr. Teen competitor! Styled with a fun cobalt blue shoe alone, Smith-Benzan lets this dress do all the talking. Her natural-looking curls and minimal accessories keep this busy print from looking overdone and allows her natural beauty to shine through on stage.

4. Royal International Miss Florida Teen 2017, Briana Florexil 

Royal International Miss Florida Teen 2017, Briana Florexil's outfit is a perfect representation of her home state of Florida! This hue of yellow pops against Florexil's skin tone and allows her to radiate light on stage. The high-waisted pants make her legs look insanely long, perfect for showing off her modeling skills. The skirt is attached to the back of the pant instead of the sides, which keeps her figure well defined while allowing her to play with the skirt.

3. Miss Texas Teen International 2017, Emily Lites 

Miss Texas Teen International 2017, Emily Lites, put a twist on the old jumpsuit and skirt combination. The interesting neckline, fun belt and sequin pattern in the pants give this outfit a lot of dimension. The skirt is made of a lightweight fabric, which means that Lites can get a lot of movement from the outfit with relatively little effort on her part. Lites' loose curls and matching shoes and earrings keep all attention on her outfit.

2. USA National Miss Eastern Shores Jr. Teen 2017, London Tucker

USA National Miss Eastern Shores Jr. Teen 2017, London Tucker, looks like she's a star walking the red carpet in this outfit. The two-piece jumpsuit is fitted to perfection and the unique shoulder cutouts add a little flare to the black top. The lines on the skirt draw your attention upward and the flower design around her hips was very in-trend toward the end of 2017. The thin black belt at the top of the skirt also helps to accentuate Tucker's figure. Finishing off the look with red earrings gives that pop of color that really draws the attention to her face.

1. International Junior Miss Jr. Teen 2017, Sullivan Black

It is no wonder that Sullivan Blackwell took home the International Junior Miss Jr. Teen 2017 title with this unique fun fashion outfit! This look has it all from sequins and stripes in the romper to color blocking in the skirt. The unique neckline draws the judges' attention up to Black's face instead of the bottom of her outfit. The pinks and reds in the skirt keep the outfit looking fresh and upbeat, as a Jr. Teen should! Simple hoop earrings, black shoes and natural curls round the outfit out. The styling of this outfit keeps Black looking fresh, professional, trendy and youthful all at this same time!

Top 10 Miss Fun Fashions of 2017

10. Royal International Miss International Role Model 2017, Brittney Cathcart

Wow, I absolutely love this attention-grabbing fun fashion outfit that Brittney Cathcart rocked the stage in at Royal International Miss. This cobalt blue color ensures that all eyes are on her as she takes the stage and is a wonderful complement to her deep red hair color. One thing that catches my eye about this outfit is the texture of the jumpsuit being different than that of the skirt. This small change sets Cathcart's jumpsuit above almost all the other jumpsuit-skirt combinations I saw last year. The skirt was a huge trend in 2017 and it is not hard to see why with the way Cathcart is modeling on stage. She really took full advantage of having some extra fabric to play around with and made sure to impress the judges with her modeling abilities.

9. Royal International Miss Arkansas 2017, Kelsey Theall

This look from Kelsey Theall at Royal International Miss shows the 2017 fringe trend done right! While this definitely could have been a Miss contestant evening gown, Theall made an amazing choice by wearing the dress for fun fashion instead. This dress has such great movement when she walks, which naturally draws the eyes straight to her. The fit of the dress is also perfect on her, which is not an easy feat for a fringe dress!

8. National American Miss Washington 2017, Hailey Sturgill

Hailey Sturgill definitely took a unique approach to the fun fashion competition and it certainly paid off. I love this ballgown turned fun fashion look. The floral print of the dress gives Sturgill a youthful and healthy glow, and what pageant girl doesn't want that? The styling of this dress makes this outfit look classic and sophisticated. A high ponytail was the perfect choice to pair with this gorgeous statement necklace to prevent the look from being overwhelming. I love a good shoe, and Sturgill's heels are the perfect pop of color to finish off this ensemble.

7. USA National Miss 2017, Kendra Hale

What a fun look from USA National Miss 2017, Kendra Hale! This outfit is the perfect way to show Hale as trendy, daring and fun-loving. Feathers are always a stand-out choice no matter what competition you're in. The rhinestone belt on the dress ensures that Hale's figure is not lost underneath the large skirt. The high-low hemline was a good choice for this particular outfit to prevent the feathers from overtaking the girl wearing them. I also really like the simple styling of this look as the dress speaks volumes already!

6. Miss Alabama Collegiate America 2017, Bailey Anderson

Bailey Anderson looks like she belongs on the red carpet of an awards show in this ensemble. This embellished high neckline with cutouts gives off a certain star quality. I like the skirt on this outfit because it makes the look appear more royal and gives Anderson the ability to add some movement to her modeling routine. I also really love the shorts on this outfit because of the phenomenal tailoring. The shorts are long enough to be appropriate and avoid unwanted wardrobe malfunctions but not too long so that they look awkward. Well done!

5. International Junior Miss International Miss 2017, Haley Pontius

It is no surprise that Haley Pontius captured the coveted International Junior Miss International Miss 2017 title in this fun fashion. Pontius' jumpsuit is simple but incredibly trendy. This bright red color really makes her stand out against the white stage at International Junior Miss. There are two unique features to Pontius' jumpsuit. First, the cape on the back attaches to the bottom of her neck and also to her wrist, giving her that "flying" effect when she walks. Second, Pontius opts for a wide-bottom leg on the jumpsuit, which is different from the fitted look we're used to.

4. International Junior Miss Pennsylvania 2017, Daniela Sofelkanik

I'm not surprised this stunning white two-piece jumpsuit worn by Daniela Sofelkanik made the top 10 outfits of 2017. This look was so unique when Sofelkanik premiered it at International Junior Miss Internationals in the summer. The shape of the top is so different than the fun fashion outfits we're used to. Instead of attaching a skirt or cape, this outfit has a similar effect by extending the top into a long train. The texture and pattern of the fabric is also quite unique from what we've seen time and time again. Sofelkanik's simple styling of this look keeps it looking chic.

3. Miss Florida Galaxy 2017, Caitlyn Kent

Caitlyn Kent's outfit is quite possibly the most unique look we saw in fun fashion last year. Kent combines three 2017 trends, fringe, rompers and capes, into one fabulous outfit. The fringe and cape on this outfit ensure eye-catching movement while Kent is on stage. I also really enjoy the shine of the fringe on the romper as it adds a little sparkle without going overboard. The cape is made from a beautiful chiffon material, which helps give Kent the "gliding" or "floating" look while she struts on stage for fun fashion!

2. USA National Miss Florida 2017, Michaela Jacobs

Michaela Jacobs absolutely nailed the royalty look in this gorgeous light blue two-piece jumpsuit. Between the intricately beaded pattern, high neckline and cape attached from the shoulder, this jumpsuit makes Jacobs look like a queen floating down the runway. I also love that Jacobs chose to wear her hair up as it pulls attention to her face instead of making the area look busy.

1. Miss Idaho International 2017, Marissa Wickland

To top the list of the best fun fashion outfits of 2017 is Marissa Wickland in this gorgeous emerald green ensemble. There is so much detail in this outfit and I absolutely love it. I really like the matching pattern on the neckline and shorts because I think it creates something unique from the standard fun fashion outfit. Wickland's skirt has a slit in the middle, which allows for a lot of play of fabric while she is moving on stage but also gives her a regal look when she stops and poses on stage.

Top 10 Preteen Fun Fashion Outfits of 2016

10. Preteen United States, Kendall Bear

How adorable is this perfectly fitted poof dress on Kendall? The beadwork on the bodice is just enough to keep the look balanced from top to bottom and draw the audience's and judge's eyes up to her beautiful face. Instead of picking a standard strappy heel, Kendall opted for the perfect matching shade of blue sneakers! I think this look is completely age appropriate and shows Kendall’s playful side.

9. USA National Miss New Jersey Jr. Teen,  Alyssa Lego

Alyssa’s red choice is stunning against her skin tone and brunette locks. The ornate details of the jumpsuit are not only elegant, but fashion-forward at the same time. The skirting overlay adds great movement to the look, while the beaded waistband and sweetheart necklace expertly show Alyssa’s figure.

  8. NAM Rochester Preteen, Annaliese Arena 

This gown is a dream! I feel as though Annaliese floated down from the clouds in this ethereal blush dress. The strapless construction is lovely on her capped shoulders, while the perfectly placed bow on the waistline conveys her small frame. Lastly, the high-low hem helps the ruffle details on the lower section of the dress gracefully fall atop the floor.

  7. Regal Majesty Lifetime Ambassador Preteen, Ashley Berginc

With the jumpsuit trend going strong into 2017, it can be hard to make a jumpsuit stand out on stage. However, Ashley’s contrasting top and bottom portion make for a great combination that pops! The added overskirt in a bubble gum pink shows her playful side without being over the top. Strappy heels give Ashley a little added height and polish to the look.

  6. International Junior Miss Georgia Preteen, Ashlyn Meadows

Again, a jumpsuit steals the show for Ashlyn Meadows' fun fashion outfit. To keep the ensemble delicate and fresh, Ashlyn opted for a lavender shade of purple with plenty of sparkle. For me, the difference maker for this jumpsuit is the skirting overlay. Rather than a hefty fabric that would add volume, Ashlyn’s skirt overlay is a soft, flowy material. I love how glamourous this entire look is.

5. International Junior Miss Lonestar State Preteen, Jaidyn Fountain

With her petite frame and stature, Jaidyn’s outfit could easily overtake her look if she let it. To keep the look from overpowering her size, I am obsessed with the choice of shorts on the bottom portion of this one-piece wear. The shorts help move the eyes up and down her entire outfit, making her actually appear taller. Not to mention the jade-green color is perfection against her warm complexion.

4. Miss Royalty International Jr. Teen, Alaysia Nelson 

Wow, this outfit truly showcases the individual style and flair of Alaysia! Can we just take a moment to appreciate her choice for shoes – the caged booties not only scream on-trend, but also are such a unique choice for on stage! The black and gold high-low dress stands out against the backdrop and the movement of the skirt is fantastic.

3. International Junior Miss Southern States Preteen, Rylee Wright

I don’t think the skirted jumpsuit will be leaving the fun fashion portion of Preteen phases anytime soon! Rylee’s unique color combination juxtaposes against her fiery red hair in a beautifully unexpected way. The teal color makes her eyes truly shine. The strapless construction also helped this skirted jumpsuit stand out, even on this list, since it is the only strapless version of a skirted jumpsuit we included.

2. International Junior Miss Louisiana Preteen, Christian Loque

Taking a cue from multiple Miss USA and Miss America contestants in 2016, Christian incorporated a cape to her fun fashion outfit. What a great way to incorporate two trends at once, the shorts jumpsuit and cape. The long, flowy cape in back actually helps Christian appear taller because of the column effect; it naturally forces the eye to move up and down her stature. The color is fantastic against her platinum blonde hair, while the neckline is feminine and age-appropriate.

1. USA National Miss Preteen, Taylor Hughes

It is no wonder this outfit has ranked our list at number one for the Preteen fun fashions of 2016. The movement of the skirt is stunning, and the colors are absolutely vibrant. Taylor’s twirling of the skirting overlay is perfection as she walked the stage, creating the illusion of the roses being in full bloom. My favorite portion of this outfit is the neckline. The inversion of the bodice shows her slender arms and shoulders.

Top 10 Teen Fun Fashion Outfits of 2016

10. USA National Miss Pennsylvania Teen 2016 Finalist, Katie Downey

8. Miss Teen Puerto Rico Galaxy 2016, Paula Baez

This shade of deep pink with the silver accents looks stunning with Paula's hair style and color. The slit in the outfit is great with the train part of the outfit, and the top half of the attire is designed so beautifully. The two together really make a great combo. Paula looks stunning!

Can you go wrong with all the sparkle and shine on a runway? Definitely not with Jenaya's look! This is an outfit that captured my attention the second I saw it and made me want it in my closet for sure. The silvery purple top and shorts, especially with the matching backdrop on stage, are so stunning. The light purple silk train really helps make this outfit a winner.

6. Miss Illinois Teen America 2016, Erin Siebert

Wearing an outfit of one strict color can be risky, especially when it comes to fun fashion attire, but Erin made this all white outfit perfect for her on that runway. The shape and style of this outfit is classy and gorgeous. The gold belt in the middle is what won this outfit over for me and helped add the perfect touch to the overall look. So beautiful!

This brightly colored and uniquely patterned outfit is definitely a standout on stage and, most importantly, makes Madelyn glow. This turquoise blue color is a great color for any teen. The solid colored pants go so beautifully with the polka-dot top and long train. Definitely a gorgeous outfit!

Yellow is such a beautiful color in pageantry and can be used in so many ways to help emphasize your look. Keisha took the perfect yellow color for her hair and skin tone and the perfect fabric to make this stunning outfit. The yellow shorts and train are stunningly beautiful. The top of this outfit really pulls it together, too, with all of the shine and designs.

Top 10 Miss Fun Fashion Outfits of 2016

10. Miss World Lesotho 2016, Rethabile T'sosane

This white and gold outfit is definitely a standout for any fun fashion outfit. The frill and layers down the legs are something you don't usually see, but Rethabile is rocking it! White and gold go so beautifully together. The different fabrics used give this outfit a lot of personality even though there are only two colors used. When having a minimal amount of colors, it's great to have and use different styles and fabrics through an outfit.

9. National All-American Miss 2016, Caitlin Detreville

Although this outfit is simple, it is definitely gorgeous! It isn't always a bad thing to just be simple on the fun fashion runway when it comes to how you want to express yourself. This black semi-casual outfit is beautiful along with the knee-high boots. The necklace is the accent piece that really ties this look together.

8. Miss Puerto Rico Galaxy 2016, Paola Rivera

Personally, I would not have thought to put these two shades of turquoise and blue together in an outfit. Sometimes we are weary to try out different color and style combinations. Paola definitely showed us here that these colors, fabrics and styles were the perfect combinations! The shine throughout the whole outfit adds a lot of personality. This really is stunning.

7. Miss Galaxy Scotland 2016, Emma Bain

This full jumpsuit is different than your typical casual every day jumpsuit... this is pageant girl style! The style of this outfit is so beautiful. It isn't every day you see a fun fashion outfit like this. Although it's a simple design, the rest of it isn't so simple. The shine and sparkle of this outfit is what you could expect in every pageant girl's wardrobe. This is stunning and Emma totally rocks this.

6. National American Miss Florida 2016, Reagan McGuire

Another white and gold outfit but with a totally different gorgeous twist. The separation of colors, fabrics and styles goes so well with the separation of the two pieces she is wearing. The shimmery top and matte white bottoms is a brilliant idea and really made this look stunning. The attached train around the waist adds the perfect effect for this fun fashion outfit. Reagan rocked this!

5. Miss International 2016, Amanda Moreno

This simple cocktail dress is beautiful, along with the studded belt around the waist. But what really gives this fun fashion outfit personality on Amanda is the silk cape attached to the top of the dress flowing all the way down. The cape, in my opinion, makes this a fun fashion outfit. Amanda looks fierce!

4. Royal United Kingdom Miss 2016, Rebecca Lancashire

I absolutely love any outfit or dress with this royal blue color. This blue is perfect for every skin tone and hair color, and Rebecca is rocking this! The strapless jumpsuit is stunning in itself, but the attached train adds a beautiful effect, along with the designs on the top of the neckline. I'm loving everything about this.

3. International Junior Miss 2016, Jasmine Guy

Jumpsuits are definitely in this year with the Miss division. I love the white outfit with the broad shouldered design and accented waistband. The cape on the outfit really ties it all together. Jasmine even picked the perfect hairstyle for this whole outfit. She is beyond gorgeous!

2. USA National Miss Ohio 2016, Allison Goodwin

This bold purple and colorful fun fashion outfit was stunning on Allison as she rocked it on the runway. The high neckline with the turtleneck style is in this year. The different designs on the bodice give this outfit, although already very colorful, a beautiful pop of color added to the purple. The big flowing train is a gorgeous piece to complete this style.

1. USA National Miss 2016, Layilah Nasser

First and foremost, this green color is so amazing! If anything, Layilah chose the perfect color for her to rock on the runway during this portion of the competition. The lace designs on the arms and the studded designs through the rest of the outfit add so much style to the overall look. I love the mermaid style, and the bottom of the outfit really makes this all pop. Layilah is stunning in this!
