1. Gangs or Fashion: Influences on Junior High Student Dress JFCS, Vol. 87:4, pp 26-32

Julia Cardona Forney and William Scott Forney

ABSTRACT: This study investigated the influence of gang dress, fashionability, and reference source use when junior high students make clothing choices and clothing decisions. Ethnicity was associated with two gang dress elements, colors and hairstyles, and choosing clothing similar to friends. Girls were more fashionable and used teen magazines more than boys while boys wore sports team hats more than girls. Also, when making decisions about clothes, boys made their decisions alone more than girls. High gang dress and fashionability levels were associated with choosing clothing similar to all reference sources investigated except that a low gang dress level was associated with music videos. When making clothing decisions, high levels of gang dress and fashionability were associated with using a friend's advice while high gang dress level was associated with the advice of sisters and brothers. Implications for parents and educators are noted for adolescent socialization and development of personal identities and autonomy.
