APPROPRIATE CLOTHES FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL GIRL

APPROPRIATE CLOTHES FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL GIRL

Some one asked recently, “Why all this agitation on the subject of high school girls’ dress?” Interest in this subject has certainly increased during the last several years and the high school girl herself is directly responsible for this interest.

It has been said that no great evil exists but contains the seeds of its own cure.

The costumes worn to school by the high school girls of our country have been gradually going from bad to worse with the years. Mothers and teachers have striven to do what they could to correct matters but not until the girls themselves realized that this great weakness existed, and they resolved to seek a cure, were real results noticeable.

The representative high school girls of our country are making a stand for good taste and democracy in the clothes they wear to school.

This little bulletin is published with the hope that its suggestions may be of value to those students who truly desire to raise the standards of dress among the girls of their school.

APPROPRIATE CLOTHES FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL GIRL

Many a girl feels, when she first enters high school, that she is a child no longer. She has suddenly become a woman, and she must demonstrate this fact to the world immediately by her clothes.

Gingham dresses, middies, and low heel shoes are scorned as belonging to the days that are gone. Hair once lovely for its natural beauty and simplicity takes on fearful and wonderful lines. French heels only are to be considered and a georgette blouse with elaborate camisole or a silk dress is an absolute necessity. With these acquisitions our young lady is ready for her new undertaking.

Could she possibly make a greater mistake? The school room is not a style show, nor a social function, but it is a busy workshop where material is to be assembled from which to build a life.

In a truly good high school, of all places, a student must do or die, and there is no time here to be wasted on thoughts of frills and furbelows. School room walls and blackboards do not make consistent backgrounds for party clothes.

In the past the high school girl who was considered well dressed by her associates was the one who was elaborately dressed. Now, since the girls of our country are interested in all the big world issues of the day and have taken efficiency as their watchword the girl who is a leader is the girl who can do , not the girl who can dress .

One of the surest tests of good judgment and refinement in a girl is her selection of clothes... Continue reading book >>
