Are you one to worry about others? When you’re not in front of the ice, are you on the phone discussing your new clothes with your friends? Nowadays, many young people dress not for themselves but especially for others. Physical appearance is a very important element in young people’s lives. This constant desire to integrate and want to be noticed by all, derives from superficiality. They must make a good impression to be accepted by groups of trendy friends.
Some of them are between 11 and 13 years old and already wear a belly button vest or often have a jewel in their pierced navel, tattoos on the body, super low waist jeans, abundant makeup and heeled shoes that give them a provocative swaying. They are still old enough to ‘play the madam or the handsome kid’ but play it for real. The consumption of clothing or fashion accessories is more and more important for some teens. The dress style has become today a means of expression and integration by the youth.
Tell me how you dress, I’ll tell you who you are

Respect the limits
between advertising and social pressure, teens are constantly exposed to the diktats of fashion. It is the parents who often pay for it because it is not always easy to manage the whims of their offspring on this very delicate subject. If they insist on choosing the clothes for their teens there is a good chance that it ends in conflict. In order to prevent the situation from degenerating it is important to set limits.
In many cases, parents do not approve of the dress code of their teens. Being sexy or being in the know does not mean being extravagant. If you want to be respected, learn to respect yourself. Avoid extravagant outfits that could harm you. Above all, remember that it is possible to value yourself other than by your appearance and your style of dress. Because, we must not forget, the attachment to fashion is intimately linked to self-esteem.
