Fashion is in the air. fashion has grabbed everyone under its spell. The students aren’t untouched of its influence. The bags they carry, the watches they wear, the hairstyle they do and the way they carry themselves involves so much of fashion.

Negative influence:

  •  Instead of going with parents or family on weekends, students like to hang out with their friends because that ‘In Fashion’ these days.
  • To follow the trends, many spend unnecessary money from their pocket money.
  • A lot of time is wasted and students get distracted from studies, which should be their prime concern in this age.
  • The trendsetters in schools and colleges many times bully the not-so-fashion-conscious.
  • The paradigm of aspirations like becoming a doctor or engineer or a lawyer has shifted towards being in the glamour industry. This affects the studies.
  • Many resort to crimes like theft when parents don’t support them to buy the gadgets/dresses which are in trend.
  • Girls start wearing makeup at an early age. There is a race to look ‘older’ than they actually are.
