Fashion For Teenagers
If you are the parent of a teenager you are well aware that fashion trends are very important. Teenagers are very concerned about how they look and what they wear. For this reason, many teens keep track on fashion tends by following them in magazines and on Tv. While this is okay in some aspects, it can result in your teenager having the desire to spend a lot of money on clothes and jewelry. However, the latest trends can be disconcerting such as baggy pants showing boxers or low cut shirts that show too much cleavage. Unfortunately, these are the latest popular fashion trends. Most people are concerned about their child displaying them. So what do you do?
When it comes to fashion trends that are unusual, you may be considering laying down the law. As a parent, you certainly have the right to do this. But you may want to consider that this may actually end up causing more damage. The teenage years can be very difficult. As a teenager, the last thing you want to be told what to do is how to be dressed by your parents. You may want to consider taking a different approach.
One of the many reasons why you should talk to your child about fashion is it may end up causing some harm. Unfortunately, some of the latest fashion trends for women are low cut shirts and low rise pants. Society has certainly changed and women need to watch for sexual predators. While your teenager may not be aware of the message that they are conveying, someone may actually end up passing judgment about them based on how they are dressed
This could place your daughter in an uncompromising and possibly dangerous situation. Take the time to explain this to your daughter, as it may make more of an impression than if you told them exactly what to wear and what not to wear.
Also, keep in mind that fashion is trendy and ever changing. What may be popular today may not be popular tomorrow. It is not unusual for a fashion trend to only last a month or so. If you are unhappy with the current trends, but your teenagers are, you may want to help them explore other options.
There are a multitude of fashion magazines and fashion websites that list fashion trends and current information on what is ‘in’ and what is ‘not.’ Depending on your choice of style, not all fashion trends require the wearing of low cut, short clothes. Take the time to explore all of your options. The trends may be ‘hot’ today but ‘cold’ tomorrow. So you are better off choosing more classic styles which will withstand the test of time.
