Clothing styles for Teens:
The Prep was a fashion style that started back in the 70s and has yet to lose its luster. It began as a style wore by kids who were in preparatory schools to show that they came from homes with excess wealth. This fashion was coined “preppy” because so many people started dressing this way to look like they were better off financially then they really were. Today this look is associated with more professional attire for teens.
“Preppy” is a classic and conservative look that is very easy to pull off. Plaids, pastels and earth tones make up the colors most often used with this style. Tops include button downs, polo tees, or any color shirt. Mixing tops with khaki or denim bottoms completes this look. Pleated dress pants and below the knee shirts are seen mostly with this style. Conservative hair accessories such as berets with small flowers or plaid designs look great with this style. Loafers of tennis shoes make a great match with tis style as well.
The Punk fashion turned up in the late 70s was a pure rebellious dress. But over the years it has molded into what we see now. It went through its heavy metal transformation in the 80s and is thriving through rockers and skaters everywhere today. Early on this style was associated with tee shirts with very offensive slogans. Most of the clothing (even new) was torn.
Today’s punk has a very familiar yet different style. Many dye their hair very bright colors such as neon, bright reds, blues, purples and greens. Mohawks and crew cuts are mostly seen with this style. Many have dreadlock hair that they tie plastic hoses and caution tape to. Tattoos are another accessory most often seen with the punk style. For teens, Washable tattoos look realistic without the permanency. Spiked dog collar chokers and wrist bracers top of this look. Many people have numerous piercings too.
Alternative styles are also sub-fashions of the Punk style. The only difference is the long hair and band orientated clothing. They wear skater shoes such as D.C.s and baggy jeans.
The Hip hop
Hip hop fashion started in the Bronx by African Americans. It later was influenced by rappers of the west coast. Hip hop made it cool to wear over sized sports affiliated clothing. To dress hip hop you have to baggy jeans that rest at waist level with no belt. Tucked the front of your shirt in and let the shirt tail hand out of the back. Many had black ink tattoos of extravagant pictures on their biceps and wore bandanas. Large gold and silver jewelry is a common accessory. Long thick chains with over sized “charms” are worn with multiple rings. Grills, jewelry fashioned teeth to wear over your teeth, are also worn. Untied boots top off this look.
With the hip hop scene trending towards “old school” from the 80s, the hip hop fashion is slowly moving from over sized extravagance to slim fit jeans, polo shirts, hoodies and trucker hats. The newest hip hop fashion looks more like that of a hip hop/ alternative style.
