I think that the reason some of the teen girls dress this way is to emulate their favorite stars, models, music people, and so on. This kind of dressing is called fashion to them and it is very popular. Other girls may dress this way to keep from being picked on by their peers, are forced into it by peers pushing them to do so, and because they think it is simply attractive. And they do not understand what is implied by dressing as such.

I do not agree with teen girls dressing as they do for those reasons above. My daughter loved some of the styles like shirts for example but hated that it was mid-drift. So we opted for a size larger say a medium for a small and it covered her belly. As for skirts and shorts, she always wore a modest length for them. Jeans were waist set not hip huggers. She also wore her shirts neckline not bust line. I also taught her to be modest. Not many are taught that anymore either. So its not only what the celebs deem a style, but its also parents who are not teaching their daughters to wear modest clothing.

As for the boys, some of them wear a style where they have their jeans hanging down their bottoms part way and show off underwear. I am not sure where that style started but it seems a fashion statement to them. I find it totally tacky and I do not want to go somewhere and have to see a boy's underwear.

Well I guess some of them are too short or showy but I think teenagers are just living their life but if you do think it is too showy or short the try to explain to her what you think about it!
