My 12 year old son has his own, unique sense of fashion. I should clarify that he has his own sense of comfortable. He is also color blind which adds a whole new dimension to fashion. My son can't tell the difference between certain grays and pinks. He is also in the 99% for his height and weight which means he is shopping in mens' clothing instead of boys.

At this point in my son's life, he is getting his own fashion sense. His favorite pair of jeans are Levis. He has jeans from many different stores, but now he has me check out for when Levi jeans are on sale. He needs the relaxed fit so he can be comfortable. He prefers the light colored denim, but I prefer the dark denim. I am trying to learn that he deserves what he wants, even if I prefer something else on him.
Now that it has been

Now, back to the color blindness. He once grabbed one of my hoodies which his father told him to take off. He went outside with his coat on. When I picked him up from school, I was mortified because I knew what happened. He has worn my black and pink striped hoodie to school! Now, if one of us tells him he should take something off, he asks why.
There isn't anything about my son's fashion I don't like, but it would be nice if he had more than one favorite shirt.
Do your children have any aspects to their fashion that you don't like? Or do any of your children suffer from color-blindess?
