WHEN Hannah Taylor hits the shops, there's only one thing she's after.

While some girls may be looking for a trendy jumpsuit or the perfect monochrome ensemble, Hannah is more concerned about comfort.

Her go-to outfits are sweaters, jeans and sneakers.

"I think people should wear what makes them comfortable," she said.

"If they wear what's comfortable, it shouldn't matter what anyone else thinks."

Hannah, 15, spoke to The Morning Bulletin yesterday about comments Bindi Irwin made in an interview earlier this week.

The wildlife warrior, who turns 16 in July, said a lot of girls her age wore revealing clothing.

Bindi said she hoped more girls would dress their age.

Hannah said she could see why Bindi had that view, but didn't really agree with it.

"Everyone has their own opinion, but not everyone has the platform Bindi does," she said.

"I don't think (Bindi) should be generalising it to every (teenage girl)."

Hannah said she didn't feel peer pressure to dress a certain way.

"We've all got our own style," she said.

"Just as long as you like what you wear, it's fine."

While she doesn't feel pressure to dress a certain way now, Hannah said she had in the past.

Hannah said she used to feel like she should be wearing mini skirts when other girls wore them.

"You think 'if I wear that, maybe people will like me more', but in the end it shouldn't matter," she said.

Hannah said social media influenced what teenagers decided to wear.
