The teen years are when one tried to discover oneself, and discovers a whole lot of new things common between the world and himself or herself. This is the time when one tries to fit into the mainstream, and yet be a shade different from the crowd. This is where the trends on fashion assume importance for a teenager in particular and for everyone in general.
Fashion forms an important benchmark in the life of a teenager. If teens are employed somewhere, about 42 per cent of their pocket-money goes into buying clothes from the latest fashion. It is quite surprising, but this is how teenagers dig their heels into a lot of confidence. The trick is to look good and attractive by virtue of putting on dresses and accessories that are in trend. They are what make you feel good about your self, and boost the self-esteem of people.
Clothing goes a long way in pushing in a lot of confidence in young teenagers. This is apparent when one considers the difference between the self-esteem of a teenager who gets to don apparels from the latest trends in fashion and the self-esteem of one who is forced to put on clothing that are simply handed down from elder siblings. This might lead to problems in adjustments in the social arena.
Teenage is the time when one's personalities begin to emerge out in the open. The clothes one wears go a long way in declaring one's personality. So, if your daughter tends to be athletic or girly or a tomboy, her clothes should be chosen with due consideration to her personality.
