I believe the second reason behind this is they seek for attention as they believe even the little black dress will not get them enough and people, specifically boys, will not recognise them as much. As a result of this the skirts get higher, the shorts get shorter and the tops get lower but at the same time are getting cropped at the bottom revealing more than enough. The strange thing is that it seems to be a competition with who can reveal the most skin and whoever enters wearing shorts I recognise as underwear gets the most attention by boys especially.

In the early 1900’s it was frowned upon for girls to even show their ankles and over the past 100 years gradually it seems to become socially acceptable to reveal certain ‘parts’ of the body. Not only is this the trend for adults but girls younger than 13 are also appealed by the idea. If this is how trends have delevoped over the past 100 years what will we be wearing in 10 years time?The above is all my personal opinion and how i see "The Influence of Clothing 'Trends'" on todays society.
