Teens are embracing graphic teeshirts and other products with their style and are more aware of the differences between boys and girls, according to a new report from a group of experts.
The group, called Teens of Color, said in its report, Teens in Change: The Changing Face of Teens, that there is more gender equity in teen fashion in America than there was even 10 years ago.
That’s partly because teen girls are beginning to dress more masculine and less feminine, the group said.
“They’re not dressing like the stereotypical tomboys, the stereotypical girls.

The study also found a significant increase in the number of girls wearing tees and other clothes featuring graphics on them.
And last month, the University of Texas at Austin said it had a study showing that a higher percentage of white teens have taken up the hobby of graphic design, a trend that’s likely to continue as the college population ages.
“We’re seeing a lot of growth in the graphic design community, and I think that’s a positive development,” said Katie Wittenberg, the director of the University’s Department of Communication.
Wittenburg said that, as a society, teens are embracing more diverse clothing styles, and more diverse ideas of what it means to be a teen.
“This is really about people seeing something that isn’t just about black and white,” she said.
Teenagers, who make up about 13% of the U.S. population, have a particularly diverse set of cultural values, Wittenburg said.
