Bindi Irwin ‘Girls That Wear Revealing Clothing Are Trying Too Hard, When They Look Back They’ll Cringe’

bindi-2sexy-bindiBindi Irwin, 15, does to support showing off too much skin. She told News Corp Australia: ‘I guess for me, because I wear khaki so much — waking up every day at the zoo, you just kind of grab your khaki uniform and you’re pretty much good to go, that when I get out of khaki I like to experiment and see how things go.

I suppose the last year or so really I’ve been starting to have some fun and see what I can do with make-up and wardrobe and be a little bit of a girlie girl. I’m a big advocate for young girls dressing their age.

I mean, for me, I look around at a lot of young girls that are my age and they’re always trying to dress older. Whether it’s wearing revealing clothes or hardly wearing any clothes at all, I feel really bad for them.
It kind of has the opposite effect in some ways, it kind of does the opposite where it makes you look younger and like you’re trying too hard. I almost wish I could tell young girls, ‘look, in 10 years when you look back at yourself, you’ll cringe honey, honestly’.

A lot of times I want to grab these girls and say ‘look.. in 10 years you’ll regret this. Just dress like who you are. Don’t try so hard. A pair of jeans and a T-shirt is just as gorgeous and even makes you look classier.

I look at adults and they say‘when I was young I was wearing blue eye shadow’ and I’m cringing. So to be able to have that outlook on life is such a blessing and I’ve gotten that from my mum especially.

The way I choose to dress, I want to influence other people around me I suppose. My mum and I, we were playing this game, how old would you be if you didn’t know how old you really are? Like how old is your soul? And I said ‘I’d be 86’.

I suppose it’s just who I am. I find that what I’m passionate about and what I talk about.. I actually have a better connection with older people than I do with younger people. I like cups of tea and reading books and poetry and old people things.

I love a cup of tea and a good book and none of that (cigarettes and alcohol) really interests me. I guess growing up at Australia Zoo and getting to travel all over the world I have this great outlook on life and that’s what I hope I inspire other kids to have.’

    This girl is wise beyond her years. I completely agree with her some of these girls who are like thirteen dress like they’re older to impress cute boys or to look more mature. They look absolutely ridiculous and they think at the time that it’s who they are or who they want yo be but in reality, like Bindi said as they get older they will eventually regret dressed inappropriately at such when they were teenagers.

    I kinda agree tbh….

    I don’t get the new notion or movement that states that EVERYONE should barely wear anything. There are just certain places where you don’t “have” to have everything showing, but whatever. People are starting to act like people shouldn’t “judge” others by how they dress, and that’s true to an extent. If you come to a job interview and don’t dress appropriately on purpose, don’t get pissed when you don’t get the job. I just feel like people should dress how they want to, but if you get “judged” for it, then that’s kinda your problem.

    I think ‘revealing’ means something different according to each individual. Like a bunch of you know I’m Indian. I’m an adult. But my parents & family wouldn’t approve of those shorts she’s wearing. I’ve known people who’ve gone to predominantly Islamic countries & the people looked at them & acted as if they were shameful because the women wore jeans & short sleeved shirts. So I think it’s all about what you’re comfortable in & your reasons for dressing in that way. If it’s positive & you’re happy. That’s all that matters.

    Oh girl the white feminists are coming for you…

      This is the scariest gif of all time.

    She has a great head on her shoulders. She makes me hopeful for the young ones.

    I agree about the dressing older. There’s 14 year olds these days walking around looking like they’re 20. You’ve got plenty of time to be an adult just be a kid geez.

  • Rah

    I think her heads in a good place, but people will wear what they want to wear. And I for one like to wear as little as possible.

    • jacub

      What do you normally wear? And whats as little as possible to you? Sorry if thats a werid question.

  • Hollyhysteria

    Love her.

  • Emma Stone

    I agree with her, really. There’s way too many kids out there dressing older than their own age. Half of them look older than me these days which is always a wtf moment when they admit to being as young as 12 or something and I’m like how.

    OK, good for her. But she should have said, be yourself, and let other be themselves. Don’t try to change others and don’t let others change you. Don’t try to influence others or be a role model. Be who you are. Do what You feel is right, and let others do the same for themselves. Don’t judge, criticize or feel sorry for others just because they have different standards, feelings, or outlook than you do.

    Finially someone with their head screw on tight. All thanks to good parenting! Some of you girls should look up to her cause she’s setting a good example for dressing her age and not looking so desperate for the wrong guys. Just saying.

  • Icanteven

    I can see where she’s coming from but the way she said it, makes it seem like she thinks she betterthose girls because she doesn’t wear revealing clothing. But I for one think you can’t dress an age and as long as you’re happy in the clothes your wearing then it shouldn’t matter what others think of you. I don’t know I just don’t like the way she said that.

    “If you got it, flaunt it” was/is the worse saying ever created. This girl is smart and it’s good to see someone deflect the trend of “My friends are doing it, so why not?”

  • Cici
