In the early 80s, junior clothing stores began to arise as a clothing manufacturer and designers realized how teenagers spent their moneyclothes. Many of these kids used their own money from jobs they had and often went shopping without their parents, choosing instead to choose their own clothes.

There are also unisex theme stores that cater to hard rock and Goth crowd, such as Hot Topic. In these stores you can find combinations of lace and leather, as well as socks and fashionouterwear. The decor of junior clothing stores add to the appeal for the younger crowd. The music that is played in them includes rock and other popular genres favored by the younger crowd. Many sellers are children themselves and proudly sport piercings, tattoos and hair color of the day.

This adds further appeal, because now groups of teens can shop togetherinstead of having to divide by enabling the group to make larger purchases in the shops that cater mainly to adults. There are even stores like Torrid that cater to younger companies, offering them the same styles as their thinner counter parts that may not be able to find in regular junior clothing stores.
