Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal, v26 n4 p425-43 Jun 1998
Influences on clothing choice were identified by 184 6th-graders, 159 9th-graders, and 135 12th-graders. Friend influence increased with age. Blacks were most influenced by media, whites and rural youth by friends. Media were less influential with females, gained influence as adolescents aged, and had almost twice as much influence on urban as on rural adolescents. (SK)
