New Fashion Trend: Girl Gone Mild

There's a strange (and refreshing) fashion trend afoot with today's teenage girls: they're dressing modestly!

While skimpy clothes still dominate the fashion scene, today there's a flip side to girls gone wild.

Call it "girls gone mild" — a building modesty movement among many young women. "The young girls themselves, they are the ones leading the modesty revolution," said author Wendy Shalit.

The "modest fashion" these girls wear may not be to everyone's taste, but most looks are straight off the catwalk. A slick new magazine Eliza caters to the modest dresser. Shalit said the thousands of young women she'd heard from wanted to fit in and be cool, just not trashy.

These new modest fashionistas prefer their necklines higher and their hemlines lower — no more than four fingers above the knee.

It seems that the Texas polygamist sect's new online clothing store is catching on!

What a load of horsecrap. Teens have always mostly dressed modestly. There is no "modest movement" because there was never a trend against modesty. Unless you're one of those types who are still agonizing over females wearing long pants. This is the regular type of crap article that feeds into the inner fogey in many folks about how kids are all wrong these days.

Around here in the big city, teen girls usually wear jeans and t shirts. The immodestly dressed are the exception rather than the rule.
