FEATURE-Less skin is back in for young Americans

 

By Linda Thomas

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Hip-hugging jeans and tight-fitting tiny tops are out. Less skin is back in for the young American.

 

U.S. fashion experts say a trend toward modesty is evident in new fall styles for clothing aimed at girls in their early teens, and will become more common with spring 2006 designs.

 

"We're seeing skirt hemlines that are at the knee and are very demure, very proper pants, prim tops and large pearl necklaces," said Gloria Baume, fashion market director for Teen Vogue. The magazine showcases fashion and photography much like its parent publication Vogue.

 

Baume, who said she looks to European fashion runways to spot what will be hot for American teens, said designers have been focusing on "ladylike and almost old-fashioned" styles that were inspired by the 1950s.

That would phase out the belly-baring, skintight numbers championed by the likes of Britney Spears. "There is nothing form-fitting about the latest fashions," Baume said.

 

Does that mean the low-rise jean fad is over?

 

"I hope so," said Baume. "I don't like them. That style has been around for four years and I think girls are getting tired of it."

 

CosmoGIRL! magazine fashion editor, Tara McBratney, agrees there is a new trend toward modesty in fashion, but she says it has little to do with pressure from conservative elements in society.

 

"Fashion is a cycle," McBratney explained. "We got to the point where the jeans were as low as they could go, shirts were as cropped as they could go, baby tees were as tight as they could go, so the natural progression is for fashion to go the other way."

 

SKIN IS OUT

 

Others say the new modesty is part of a larger social shift.

 

"Teens are realizing that having an unstructured, unorthodox lifestyle didn't work well for previous generations so they're becoming more conservative with their clothing and politics," said Pam Gunderson, who leads the Challenge Girls Club of Greater Seattle.

 

More than 400 people attended a fashion show the Catholic club sponsored in the Seattle area recently featuring modest clothing. Summer styles included one piece, colorful floral swimsuits with slip on skirts and mesh sleeveless cover-ups.

 

The club is one of dozens in the United States organizing such shows, called "Pure Fashion."

 

"Any outfit should not be so tight that you can see the shape of underwear underneath it. And a girl should be able to reach for something on a high shelf, bend over and pick something up or sit on a chair without skin showing," said Gunderson.

 

Gunderson's daughter, 12-year-old Ella Gunderson, said she wrote a letter to Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc. criticizing the department store retailer for selling clothes that showed too much skin.

 

"I see all these girls who walk around with pants that show their belly button and underwear," she wrote. "Even at my age, I know that is not modest."

 

Most girls have a hard time believing they can be popular while being modest, according to educator Camille De Blasi.

 

"Our culture teaches that happiness only comes from physical pleasure or ego gratification," De Blasi said. "It's a message teens get so immersed in from music, magazines and television that they start to believe it."

 

An older teen, 15 year-old Michelle Ross, said said modest clothing is becoming "less unpopular."

 

"You can still be cool even if you're not wearing the same type of clothing as everyone else," said Ross. "Personality is what matters."
