What Clothes Can Say About You
What's so bad about wearing a tank top to school? Or a pair
of low, low-rise jeans? You should be free to express yourself through your clothes,
right? And although you may think that "dress codes and attire rules are cramping
your individuality, take a moment to think about what your clothing says about you

when your clothes are too revealing. Experts agree that wearing low-cut shirts,

let the wrong fashion impression undo all the wonderful work you do. Instead, make
sure that the clothes you choose each day flatter your figure and cover all your
personal parts. You want the attention you get from teachers, parents and guys to
be positive. You’ll also feel great knowing that everyone loves you for who you
are and the things you say and do. That’s real beauty!
