Alté dressing also known as Alternative dressing involves dressing in a simple way, not having to go all out on funds to look good but also being creative by expressing yourself. This creativity adopts the mix of every style such as Baggy Jeans, Baggy Shirts, Piercings, Hair dying, Dirty Sneakers, Retro glasses and Makeup, Fanny packs, making use of Padlocks as Pendants for Jewelry, making use of Shoe laces as Belts etc. With all these they’re often regarded to as the “cool kids” or “Alté kids”.

In this recent times, Alternative style of dressing has quickly become a trend amongst Nigerian teenagers and youths. This trend is moving and doesn’t strike as one that will fade away soon because a majority of the teenagers and youths want to associates with the cool kids and they do this by joining the Alternative style of dressing. They always hangout together  because they enjoy each others company and often get criticized by non altés. The Alté style is still a moving trend due to the fact that It has paved way for some young teenagers and youths like @druntivitycreayard, @elvisstyling on Instagram and others to bring their innovative ideas into the Fashion Industry.

To my own opinion, it will soon fade away reason being that it wasn't the first and for the fact that its era last Longer than the rest is not An assurance that it won't go or fade away. Alternative dressing wasn't the first. Time an season change, so it will.

In regard to my own it would maintain a somehow long time in vogue among youth and teenagers of today, but subsequently in the near future as so many styles of dress and different fashion is now been emerging in the globe, I guess that it would eventually go out of date and people can not longer tolerate such dress why because they would consider it as obsolete fashion.

To me I think it a good idea because this shows that we children of this generation are trying to create our own sense of fashion which is the late way.

But I don't really like the piercing aspect. But it a good idea we are creating our sense of fashion

It will stay for some time,fashion never fades,it only depend on individual capability. This has come to trend for as long as its lovers can afford it,although it could fade in some part of the nation. But will definitely trend in other areas for a very long period.

One think I like about this generation is their sense of creativity when it comes to fashion. I'm a fashion freak and I like the idea behind the Alte Style.... Simplicity. 

It's a trend that will last long in the fashion world, believe me. Nobody wants to stress themselves nowadays. Easy come, easy go.

It will soon fade, though.  No matter how nice or good a fashion trend is, there will be definitely something else that will outshine it. 

I think it's nice though that a whole lot of people are going retro this days.  It shows we still value and remember our source

Well I don't really think this Alté style will last long, highest by next year it will be gone. The fashion is good for the fact someone can feel free to wear funny designs. But irrespective of this not being the first nor second fashion trend outfit or design  (Ankara style, dansaki), then I see no future for it.

A trend refers to something that is constantly changing or developing. Which means that if Alté style is the trend now, in a few years from now someone will come up with another creative style which people will fall in love with and then it will also become a trend. Fashion is dynamic as it involves a lot of creativity. Alté is the new cool right now and I must say people are doing a lot of dope things with the style but in the same vein, I can't wait to see what the next trend is going to be.

The Alté style will not not go or fade away immediately as long as their are some group already pursuing the style of dressing, it will stay because there are more people or teenagers that are yet to discover and embrace it. It's a life style whether good or bad, there are teenagers that must do it and they will use it to influence others thereby making it popular.

The alte style is a trend like no other which make it even more unique and interesting. And I believe that this is a medicine for fashion to the youths and teenagers of Nigeria. Alte style is surely going to make waves and is going to last longer than expected.

Alternate dressing?? Lol apparently this is d new trending dressing  style among the youth of late but one thing I tend to understand in this country is that nothing, I mean nothing last..  In my own opinion just give this alte dressing stuff some few months it gonna end up becoming an old tale..so is best we all enjoy it as it last

Alternative dressing is cool..well at least it looks cool to me. But things will always change..culture is ever changing. It is what is trending now but might soon die..another form of dressing might soon come up to take it's place. My stand is that it will soon change.

I feel like it totally would stay relevant for a long time. Alternative dressing allows people especially teenagers to express themselves in different ways. People now see things differently and want to show up to events in a cool and unique way. Alternative dressing is a breath of fresh air and it should be embraced .

To everything there's time and to every trend there is a time to  fade away .

My opinion is that just like every other things time will come that people will forget about this style, something else will take over, then to people this style will just be like a trash, if you wear it then people will be like at you like what have you worn. 

But after sometimes it may come up again, shine again, trend again and will be the show of the season, especially if rock by a public figure. 

So, Yes it will still fade away.

It is obviously going to fade away soon but it might take a while. Imagine in the olden days everybody wear baggy trousers and clothes, later pencil trousers came in and baggy kind of faded away. Lately we see baggy trousers trending again. It is going to fade away and come back in another creative way. 

Unfortunately youth have taken it and used it in and ways
