Again, I'm not trying to offend anyone, and I'm not exactly carding at the door so people's ages are just my perception -- I'm not about to start pulling pictures and user names. I'm just saying that when you don't look old enough to buy a pack of cigarettes and you're wearing Dior Homme boots that are twice the size of your head (and cost half of your yearly income), IMHO, you look 'dressed up' rather than 'stylish.'
I, of course, like anyone who looks like they're enjoying anything, however, the self-enamored nature of dressing well is in contrast, to what I think youth should be -- not caring about anything. There's plenty of time in life to stress about your wardrobe and when you hit that age, you find it's just as much out of necessity as it is for enjoyment. IMHO, 17 year old girls with Chanel bags aren't much worse than 17 year old boys in Helmut Lang.
