Everywhere you go you see teen girls in jeans and hoodies. Well, it’s Florida! What are teens doing in clothes you could wear in northern states! What makes kids these days not want to wear shorts or sleeveless shirts? Dress code. Sure the dress code is considered a good thing, even though it’s most of the time, but it makes kids used to wearing jeans and sweatshirts. For those who right now might be saying in their head, what if someone just likes how a 2-pound hoodie looks on them? Well, I’m sure that person is wearing that 2-pound hoodie because it’s comfortable indoors, rather than because it’s their favorite shade of yellow. Dress code can also make some kids feel insecure about how they look with a tighter shirt or sleeveless, plus it probably feels wrong after wearing oversized crewnecks 5 days in a row. The point is dress code is a good thing, but its effects aren’t for the better
