knowledge function of attitudes aids us to order the information we encounter. The new products proclaimed by marketing information reaches us through every direction of media, including the magazine, the Web, billboards and television. Due to the different individual way of differentiating our values and what is important to us, the way we use our attitudes functions are different from the others. Marketers are aware of these and have reach out to us in various ways. There are several influences that contribute to how we shape our attitudes like our own personality, the experience we had, family and friends. A human personality is the psychological characteristics of a person that routinely influence the way people respond to their surroundings.

Friends and peers are the main influence of our attitude formation from childhood onwards. Peers often have similar attitude towards something such as fashion, games, food and entertainment. The influences of teenagers towards each other are probably the most critical one. To relate my research to this statement, the teenager in the streetwear culture often compare themselves among their peers with their clothing apparels, their expensive items. This influences the desperation of an individual to get what their peers have; thus it promotes materialism in the youth. The Final Word Although streetwear culture is not that popular in the older days, we can’t conclude that today’s streetwear culture is the same as the previous one. The progress of their culture is growing rapidly and new trends keep appearing every day.
