Generation Hacking

Not quite ready to grow up, teen DIYers put their own spin on adult clothing

Implications - As the maturation of children starts earlier and earlier as years pass, tweens and teens are becoming more accustomed to emphasizing their prowess for a grown-up lifestyle through creative expression via personal style. Wanting to be considered an adult, but still not ready to indeed grow up, younger generations are DIYing their own clothing to satisfy this desire to have their mature attitude acknowledged by personal and professional peers. This form of generation hacking blurs the line between juvenile and mature further to create an age-based limbo for those on both sides of the spectrum.
