Why do people care so much about fashion and how people dress?

Especially celebrities with these shows either praising or putting them for how they dress. To me we as a society are teaching young people to judge people by the way they dress and their hairstyles. It's very irritating and saddening to me.

Um, I don't. And I plan on teaching my kids not to be a sIave to the fashion industry. Buying new clothes every "season" and saying silly crapola like "That outfit is like SO last year" and "Like OMG did you see what she wore to Oscars?!"

Actually statistically if you dress well in the work place you are 70% more likely to gain a promotion than those who don't.

ive wondered the same thing. A couple of my friends came over and instead of wanting to talk like we used to, all they wanted to do was talk about fashion ad junk like that. I just wanted Captain America.

Your outward appearance says a lot about a person. If they are stylish and dress nice, that speaks well of the person that they care enough to properly present themselves to the public.

Some people just like jeans and t-shirts. Being comfortable. I agree with the outward appearance to an extent. If somebody doesn't comb/brush their hair and their clothes are wrinkled they look bad. But why does everyone have to be stylish and look cool?

It's possible to dress comfortably AND have a good appearance. I'm not saying you need designer jeans or the latest fad but something that is clean and presentable such that you don't look like you just got off your shift at the car wash. As mentioned, how you present yourself says a lot about you. If you want that to be a good first impression, pay attention to your attire.

They have been exposed to that type of behavior in the media for decades now and that is all they see. As long as the media keeps making a ton of money from it and the consumers don't complain or stop consuming the garbage in a mass quantity it will continue.

Because it has been biologically instilled in animals, including homo sapiens. Physical appearance is how people judge potential mates and their genetic fitness.

I'm with Tony. It's kinda nuts if you go that crazy over fashion. But my opinion on this is dress presentable, don't be a slob, but don't dress so fancy like you're on the red carpet or something. Dress nice and presentable. :o

As long as it's not the only thing you care about. Some people enjoy current fad and fashion and that's fine, it becomes a problem when you base your ( and others) self worth on the latest styles.

I don't really care about fashion. My clothes are clean, wrinkle free, colorful and they all come from Walmart.

I like the Walmart fashion, cheap looks good to me. Unless fashion is your hobby, I just don't see how it fascinating

People who wear grunge usually are not poor. They are trying to follow the fashion, which is trend that some young people do not care about appearance these days.

A few reasons. Some follow fashion because what is on the runway today eventually works its way down all the way to even Walmart fashions, albeit a watered down version. Some people think of it as art for the body and truly enjoy colors, textures, fabrics, etc. For others it is a way to show off their wealth or success, same with a car. Some people just thrive on change, keeps the world from being boring. Personally, I put my $ into the classic pieces that are quality, will wear well and stand the test of time in fashion. Usually, the dress up clothes that are expensive anyway. I pay few dollars for an item that is here today gone tomorrow and only if I really like it. Being clean and not looking like you just woke up and came to work that way, is way more important than that you have on current fashions.

I don't. unlike most other girls my age (14-16), I HATE trying on clothes. it may be the 21st century, but my fashion sense is either off-the-wall and entirely planned, or most times nonexistent as in I throw on any old outfit. I hate shopping too. if it was a 1D t-shirt, I might care. the cray-cray neons, no thanks.

Because humanity at large is a pool of festering meat driven by cultural norms and social conventions to find acceptance in modern (pathetic) society. I'll never understand how a species once quite promising has fallen into simply blindly following examples or ideals set by a select few. Defy this. Be weird, be straight up crazy. I've gone to school in tunics, pantaloons, Oriental garb from a thousand years ago (obviously not the originals), and tons more crazy stuff from all over time and space on Earth. I take pride in smashing the skull of social conventions in in so many ways.

Right on. I wear t-shirts, jeans, jean shorts, and hoodies. I couldn't possibly care less what is fashionable or "in style".
