WHAT. How is it already Justin Bieber’s 19th birthday?? It feels like just yesterday I was watching him ride Segways around Madison Square Garden, inter-cut with vintage kidrauhl footage. (MAYBE because I re-watched Never Say Never earlier this week, but I digress…) On the same tip, it also feels like I was JUST heralding the onslaught of Bieber’s new adult chapter after turning 18. In so many ways, this is pretty indicative of how weird turning 19 is. For everyone, not just international pop stars. It’s all very “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.” Or, you know, “boy” and “man” in Bieber’s case.

You just made your adult debut at 18, but this is your last year as a teenager. Magazines are swaddling you in “swaggy adult” menswear, but off the clock, you’re celebrating your birthday with no shirt and honestly are barely wearing pants. Don’t get us wrong; we’re definitely not complaining. We just know there comes a time in every dreamy teen idol’s career that they shed the togs of their youth and slip into a pair of chinos. But like, really, really good ones. In honor of this final leg of Justin’s teenage years, here are 19 outfits the dude probably won’t be able to get away with after this year. ENJOOOOOYYYYYY!

BARELY AN OUTFIT

It appears Biebsy took the whole “birthday suit” idea to heart for his 19th. Justin celebrated in London and wasn’t just shirtless but WAY sagging his cobalt leather drop-crotch pants.

POINTY HAT, PURPLE PANTS

Earlier this week, J. Biebs stepped out in the above ensemble. There are a lot of things happening here — bright yellow, spiked hat, fake glasses, Jesus piece, BBC Ice Cream crewneck, purple leopard print pants (drop-crotch, of course), TWO WATCHES. Apparently Justin’s stylist/swag coach Ryan Good said he wouldn’t go out dressed like this, and Bieber just had to prove him wrong.

FOCUS ON THE FOOTWEAR

Nevermind the zebra pants for a moment (only because we’ll get to them later), and please take a look at Justin’s feet. This is real style insight, y’all. In Bieber’s world house slippers trump house socks. Beliebers, take note!

’G’ IS FOR ’GAS MASK’

Justin’s the youngest dude in the mask game at the moment, but the trend amongst adults is actually ski masks, not rubber gas masks.

DUCKIE HAT, ZEBRA PRINT

There’s something nostalgic and very John Hughes about Bieber in a pork pie hat and loud clothes (paging Duckie, AMIRITE??), but again, Pretty In Pink is set in high school. Just sayin’.

POPPIN’ FRESH PANTS

I don’t care who or how old you are; I don’t ever want to see Pillsbury Doughboy pajama pants out of the house.

BORDEAUX BANDIT

Before there were masks, Bieber experimented intermittently with paisley bandanas. Because the frequency was so irregular, there’s no telling when his bandit look might resurface. WATCH OUT.

KING OF THE DROP-CROTCH

Don’t misunderstand. Justin could wear a subtle harem trouser for the rest of his life and we wouldn’t bat an eyelash. This here is next level drop-crotch to the point where we wonder if he’s rocking an adult diaper under there, and it will be very hard to tolerate around these parts of the interwebz after dude breaks 20 years of age. MARK MY WORDS.

OVERALL OFFICIAL

He could barely get away with meeting the Canadian prime minister in overalls as it already was, but we shrugged it off because he was 18.

LONG LOST COREY

Corey Feldman. Corey Haim. Corey BIEBER. This look. HOMG. It smacks of The Goonies.

ALL OF THE TRENDS

Spiked shoulders, solid bandana, all red everything, gold fingerless gloves, metal-laden Supras. On top of Bieber wearing every trend at once, we can’t help but be vaguely reminded of Mulan (the Disney version) with this ensemble.

SAG = SWAG

This is probably the one thing we’re most worried about Bieber being able to let go of in his twenties. For now, enjoy your underwear-flaunting youth, but MAN, we thought Ellen bought you a belt, JB!

LIGHT AND BRIGHT

A little print can go a long way. A gigantic, BRIGHT print that’s PAIRED with a hyper-matching hat that calls out the two loudest colors of the aforementioned print? That’s a luxury afforded almost exclusively to the young. Relish it while you can, bruh bruh.

FUN WITH SOCKS

Okay, so no one in life is immune to the plight of trying but horribly failing at finding two socks that match in time to get out the door. We’re all victims of it. The difference here, though, is that this doesn’t seem so much an accident as a completely, 100% purposeful decision.

FUN WITH SOCKS (THE MATCHY MATCHY REMIX)

And this OTHER outfit with sweatpants and statement socks (that actually match) feels like proof. Also, so much commitment to matching here. Wow.

BEACH BIEBER

Beanie + socks + BEACH + tank top. That’s all.

’SWAG BOOTS’

Matching with Jaden Smith is always an adorable win in my book. And even these furry “swag boots,” as Bieber referred to them when he tweeted this picture, are cute. But they don’t necessarily scream “ADULT” to me. Unless you’re an adult team mascot of some sort. Or a furry.

STRAIGHT SHUFFLIN’

I know this was just for the cameo with LMFAO at the 2011 American Music Awards, but I also know you picked up the zebra pants in that moment and kept that train going. You never know.

SNACK COLLAR

As much as it pains me, Biebs, I think you’re going to have to let go of the collar big enough to hold snacks whence you cross over into life after your teens. I wish it could be different. I wish I could hide a party-size bag of Doritos and a 2-Liter of soda in my lapels, too, but it’s just one of the Four Horsemen of Growing Up, my dude. But hey, at least you can ALWAYS get more tattoos. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! STAY YOUNG 4EVER!
