How Do Teenagers Afford These Clothing?

Real answers please. So, I go to this high school, not in a very rich area. A lot of my friends, always buys expensive clothing. They're always at the mall whenever I text them, always buying designer clothing, expensive clothing, etc. I don't know how they afford them, as I know their parents, they aren't very rich. I would say my parents are richer and I probably have more money then them. I just wanna know, what do these kids do to get these "expensive" clothing. Do they buy them, then return it? Do they wear it in stores, then take pictures?

What do you mean by designer? Stuff like Nike/north face or Gucci/LV? They prob just don't have much else to worry about/ save for them/ or could be buying replicas

You should ask them.

they are from middle class families

Maybe they are stealing them, it's not uncommon for school kids to steal clothes. I would not recommend anyone try it though as there could be serious long-term or life-changing implications if caught. Having said that, I wonder if they have a part-time job. If they get pocket money and have a job, perhaps they could afford it or they get good pocket money. They only way you'll know is to ask them.
