In adolescence, where the young person is searching for his identity, clothing allows him to assert himself. At an age when the body is transformed, it helps it to appropriate and master what escapes it.

On the contrary, the one who is proud will put its forms in values by putting t-shirts close to the body.
For clothing is first a sexual marker. It is also observed that from the birth, the child’s dressing room is anticipated since its sex determines the color of what it carries: blue for a boy, pink for a girl.

The young people, who are in the making of this seduction, will use it as a means to attract the gaze of the other, to please, to see to be loved. Fashion allows the adolescent to test his ability to please the other sex.
