Bindi Irwin is an advocate for young girls dressing their age
Age-appropriate Bindi Irwin says she is an advocate for young girls dressing accordingly and feels they should not wear excessively revealing outfits.
Bindi Irwin is not down with young girls wearing overly revealing clothes and skimpy outfits. The late Steve Irwin's daughter believes girls her age should dress more appropriately.
The 15-year-old "Crocodile Hunter" offspring says she is committed to wearing clothes that don't reveal too much skin and likes dressing her age. She feels some girls try too hard to look sexy and end up appearing younger and immature.
"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," Irwin told the Daily Mail. "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."
Irwin added that she feels dressing inappropriately could affect her teen peers later on in life in negative ways when they will cringe at themselves 10 years down the road. "Don't try so hard. A pair of jeans and a T-shirt is just as gorgeous and even makes you look classier," the wildlife specialist said.
While most of Irwin's same-aged famous friends don't follow her dressing standards, the Australian TV personality admits she's different and has always acted older than her years. Irwin feels her upbringing has helped mold her into who she is and is glad to have had the opportunity to stay grounded.
"I love a cup of tea and a good book and none of that [other stuff] really interests me," Irwin said. "I guess growing up at the 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."
