Fashion and Teenagers

The Teenage Years represent the transition period into adulthood. Teens start to develop their independence and unique opinions about life’s issues. The fashion trend has changed quite a bit from the days when Indians set up tents in the United States of America. When it comes to shopping, teens like to choose their own clothes and fashions at this time of their life. Sometimes teens and parents agree which clothes to purchase, sometimes they disagree.

Teenage years may be called “Acne Years”. These years can turn into nightmares which many times continue into adulthood. Many products are available without bringing the desired results. We have the products that will eliminate these nightmares.

Helpful in developing identity

Some teen fashion statements are going to be crazy but they might be bearable. If you come upon something that actually covers them, make sure you give them a good eye roll. That might encourage them to wear that style. You might think it looks funny, but at least they are covered. That should be your main concern. You can lay down the law when you see teen fashion that seems to be too revealing, but you may be encouraging them in that direction.

Though teen fashion comes and goes and you can expect the main purpose of these fashions is to make sure they dress nothing like their parents. Teens have a strong need to set their own style, and figure out what their own identity is aside from their parents. That’s a perfectly normal part of growing up, and if a parent does not roll their eyes just a little when the see teen fashions, those teens are going to be confused and they may try something else. That might be a good thing to keep in mind.

Teens have a greater selection of clothes than ever. From running pants and bottoms and outerwear, juniors styles, and jeans, teen clothing and active wear is a great way to live your youth.


This is a term you will become familiar with during the planning of your wedding. Getting married is no easy task. You are expected to look your best at every moment, before, during and after the wedding. Plus, getting married gives you a social license to indulge your every whim and buy a whole lot of gorgeous outfits. What more does a girl need or want?

In the old days, it was the bride's family's responsibility to prepare her trousseau (dahej) that she would take with her to her husband's home. Many brides would not take any of their old clothes to their new home; instead it was customary to prepare 11, 21, or sometimes 101 new articles of clothing for the bride. Today some brides keep old traditions alive while others are not so worried about the numbers game.

The trousseau is not limited only to clothing. It can include accessories ranging from bangles to purses and shoes. Household items such as bed sheets and kitchen utensils may also be included. And of course no bride can forget her new pieces of jewelery.

Preparing and planning trousseau can be frustrating and over-whelming. Here are some great tips to getting it all right:

Plan, plan, and plan! Sit down and make a list of everything you actually need! No point of spending money where you do not need to spend it.

Divide your trousseau into 4 main sections, formal, semi-formal, shoes and accessories and lingerie.

A wide range of lehngas, saris and salwar kameez could have included for all of the different post-wedding events.

Match accessories and shoes as you go along with the purchase of each outfit. The most annoying thing ever is to have an outfit that has no matching shoes or shoes that does not really go with any of your outfits!

Do make sure you have some outfits with traditional embroidery. Although what is really 'in' right now is crystal, accentuated outfits, which can go out of fashion really quickly so traditional yet elegant outfits would be just perfect to have sitting in your wardrobe for any formal occasion after the wedding. You will be expected to do a lot of visiting after the wedding - your outfits for these should be a combination of the ornate and the chic.

For the Grooms side, it is important in most Asian cultures to prepare a wardrobe full of bridal outfits and accessories for the new bride joining their family.

In summary, Asian weddings are all about shopping until your hearts content. This is the beginning of a new life for you so you deserve to be spoiled in every shopping sense.
