Significant influences on teen fashions come from music videos, movies, teen idols and celebrity heart throbs. Peer pressure can also effect how your teenager chooses to dress. These personal style choices by teens may communicate more about their self-esteem and personality traits than it does about what's popular to wear.

Music Videos and Fashion

Music videos often introduce trendy apparel as part of the overall tone and feel of the music. Often this artistic expression which is carefully built by professional stylists, can leave a lasting style impression on teenagers. These selected styles, which are usually part of a marketing campaign often become, immediately, available at retailers once the video is launched. These videos can impact how your teen updates or accessorises her wardrobe to resemble their favourite artist or band.

Teen Fashion Magazines

Teen fashion magazines influence everyday teen wardrobes as well as colour schemes. Designers purchase ad space and photograph campaigns that are targeted directly to teenage lifestyles. These ads are carefully selected by art departments which tie into rapid selling or "hot" items, such as the "Twilight" books and films. Teens will often want to dress like their favourite characters or add their favourite actor's style to their existing wardrobe.

Teen Idols and Fashion

Teen idols, heart throbs and often times their TV shows, such as Mylie Cyrus as "Hannah Montana" can impact your teenagers wardrobe. Brand related items become part of their everyday attire to express their likes as well as their own artistic expression. Fitting in with other teenagers can also add to extra peer pressure and often dictates how and what your teenager chooses to wear.
