Yes, today’s children are victims of fashion: The fashion industry has been coming up with a lot of trending fashion for children. Media plays an important role by reaching out to the target audience with up to date fashion styles and children have picked up the trend very fast.
- There has been an observational debate that fashions are destroying the children as they are inclined towards trending fashion products and are making their parents spend huge money on the clothes and accessories.
- Children should be focusing on studies; however, they are spending most of their time following the fashion and are neglecting their studies.
- Students should be aiming for their careers and future but instead, they are getting influenced by various TV commercials and other forms of media that appeal to them directly. This is very harmful to their future/career in the long run.
- Earlier, it used to be very healthy competition among classmates and friends about who will score better in which subject or who will outshine the others in sports, music, dramatics, debate etc. But now it is more about competition for the latest fashion accessories and clothes.
- Girls, on the other hand, are becoming conscious of their weight and appearance that they often skip meals or eat very little to look slim which is very harmful to their health and development. On their own, they are experimenting with diet pills and supplements which is really unhealthy practice. Also, students are getting their hair treated with bleach, colours, and chemical products without knowing their harmful side-effects.
- These data suggest a simple answer to the question “what to wear?” Select a color combination that is neither completely uniform, nor completely different. Certainly, moderate matching is not the only key to fashion, which varies across time and culture and depends upon many factors including cut, design, and trendiness. However, these studies reveal that, with all other factors held constant, the Goldilocks principle predicted judgments across four different color palettes in both men’s and women’s clothing. To examine the external validity of these findings, future research should test this idea in naturalistic settings, such as in magazines and runway shows.
