Ha! Yes, why do they? It is perhaps to prove that they can look good in anything. 'They would look good in a sack', is said of some people. So, here we have people dressed in tattered clothes and carrying them off. They probably look at us and think why are we dressed weird. It goes both ways.
Though I personally do not like the look, I accept it as a fashion trend. No judging, my own kid wore it. Some can carry the look really well, they walk around with a swag and a confidence that I probably did not have at their age, wearing perfectly stitched clothes. Let's give it to them. There are, of course, many who copy the trend, but are unable to do justice to it – they do not make the cut.
Fashion trends take birth on the ramps of Milan, New York, London and Paris. And then make it to the covers of glossies, get picked up by fashion houses and brought home by celebrities and get aped by the fashion conscious.
