It is very essential that every school girl should know the value of clothes and what they can do for her. Her whole life can be affected by her clothes. Many careers have ended because of lack of interest in clothes and careers have been made because of keen interest and appreciation. Opportunities for leadership and self-expression have been lost because of a natural disregard for clothes or lack of training in the appreciation of beauty in clothes. Regardless of what has been said against appearance as a snare and an empty vanity, the fact still remains that dress has a tremendous influence upon individuate, upon the wearer, and the beholder. The author agrees wholeheartedly with the writer who said that "The consciousness of being becomingly and fittingly dressed for the occasion whatever that occasion may be strengthens and insures one's self-confidence tremendously, give poise and self-command, encourages the brain to forge forward, emboldens the timid tongue, and quickens one's wits along the avenues of resourcefulness, inventiveness, graceful speech and tact". If one is conscious of being properly attired, all of his faculties are stimulated and inspired.
