There once was a time where parents weren’t that concerned about fashion for preteen but that time has long passed. It seems that adolescence is growing longer as people in their late twenties find they are experiencing the same struggles that they parents had to overcome in their early twenties. However, adolescence is extending itself in the other direction as preteens feel a greater need to grow up faster. For that reason pre-teens fashion is becoming nearly as shape shifting as teen fashion.
There’s no doubt that one of the biggest influences on preteens fashion is teen fashion. However, preteen fashion is also infused with a bit of comfort and some childish glamour. The popularity of fashion hello kitty jewelry is a testament to the not a baby, not yet a teen predicament of this tweener generation. However, the increasing number of stars that got their starts as preteen fashion models reflects the growing nature of the preteen fashion world. With brand name clothing companies producing preteen fashion lines and tons of emo fashion, hip hop fashion and even punk fashion available for parents to get, it won’t be long before the pre-teen fashion world takes a bit of the teen fashion world’s thunder as an innovative fashion force.
