My parents can be strict sometimes when it comes to my clothing. I'm not allowed to wear anyting too tight—skinny jeans—or anything too colorful. What are some clothing and/or stlyles your parents don't allow you to use?

Well I personally dress very modestly, a lot of turtlenecks and fully buttoned shirts.  Despite my fairly nerdy style there are something’s I have had to deal with.  Everyday for school I wear my hair fairly “weirdly” and I colour it with pastels.  I’ve done every colour this side of the sun and although I’m aloud to do this they don’t let it go without adding a side comment or look.  Even the occasional laughter.  I put up with it though because even if it is a stupid thing to do I'm young and can still get away with it.  being wierd doesnt hurt anyone right??

Being weird doesn't hurt. We're "young wild and free" right?

My parents don't really care what I wear. I've walked out of the house wearing nothing other then a bandana as a dress and they didn't look twice. If you like it, wear it, no matter what anyone says. Fashion isn't about what looks good, it's about what's fun at the moment.

I so agree with you, Sorla. Just try explaining that to some of our parents. Fashion or no Fashion, to them Rules are Rules.

I'm not allowed to wear anything "too revealing," which I don't think is ridiculous because I would be too uncomfortable to wear anything like that out of the house anyway.

My parents dont like how i dress period >.> I tend to wear jeans (that aren't skinny, more like boot cut or straight) i find in my dresser and a random shirt. That's pretty much what i wear everyday cuz im lazy. And they kinda get annoyed cuz they say im young and i should care about how i look more >.>; Dude, nothing wrong with a t shirt and jeans.
 
A couple times when we were gonna go out to grocery shop, I put on my usual wear and my mom's like "NO, YOU'RE NOT WEARING THAT" and then went and dug in my cloest for better clothes ^^; And she always pulls out these really girly looking shirts that i don't like and pants that are too tight for me >.>; I never wear them XD
 
We kinda have a compromise outfit though :P It's a pair of capris or skinny jeans that aren't that skinny (so they're not THAT bad) and this shirt that my mom says looks "somewhat fashonable" and what i say is "not super girly and waaay loose" XD

SuperFloree, in your case, most teens would be happy that of the way your parents want you to dress. But hey, we're not all the same. And that's perfectly normal. Embrace your style.

My problem isn't so much my clothing... My parents don't care anymore. But they will NOT let me get my piercings and dye my hair! :(

XD True, guess my mum just expected that so much that when i didnt dress like that, she got upset lol. I dunno, still nothing wrong with t-shirts and jeans. And since I'm going to a wedding, I'll have to dress up e.e; Bleh. My mum's more excited about getting me into a dress and actually looking like a girl more than anything,

Flo:
 
I know the feeling...
 
My mom probably wishes I dressed in more revealing clothes. She thinks I dress "like a Grandma."
I'm just modest and I like sticking with jeans, Beatle's t-shirts, and plaid. XD
 
Yes, me and my mother have a strange relationship (did I mention that she blasts modern rock while I listen to the Beatles and Bach? :P)

I usually just wear a t shirt and jeans (shorts or capris when it's hot out) and my parents are fine with it, except they don't always like the shirts I wear: I like  occult kind of things, you know, like ouija boards and black cats and 666 and the like. My mom is very superstitious and Christian and almost didn't let me get a ouija board t shirt that I bought. Also, I would love to dress more in cute, I guess girly vintage styles, like floral patterns and jean jackets and skirts and stuff, but my parents (and everyone else I know) would probably make fun of me if I did because it's so opposite of what I usually wear. Oh well. :/

Most of my family is Christian, so we don't wear terribly revealing clothes. I've never gotten into trouble with what I wear, so I don't know exactly what the rules are. I don't think they're too strict though, because my mom doesn't mind if my sisters wear something a little low-cut or something.
    Mostly I'm a very modest person. I don't like shorts that end much above the knee, or anything too tight. I won't wear a standard one-piece swimsuit, though I used too when I was little. Now my swimsuit is a halter-top that goes all the way to my waist, and black capri exersize pants that go past my knees.
    I also feel uncomfortable showing more than just a tiny bit of cleavage. One of my sisters has laughed at me a couple times for wearing a cami under my shirts. XD

I'm bisexual and not really religious, but I live in a very religious family who are also homophobes which is why I feel uncomfurtable to talk to them about some of my problems cause if I come up to them and tell them about depression they'll either blame me for being bisexual or bring up religious quotes from the bible, it really bothers me. Anyways, They wont let me wear LGBT or anything that supports LGBT. I'm going to be doing it anyways though.
