This is just an observation and in no way a criticism to all those out there that home school. Over the years I have known many families that home schooled their children and I have noticed a common thread (bad pun intended)... the home school 'uniform'.
Is the 'uniform' of the home school girl just a result of practical economically thrifty parents? Is there a reason that this particular style is preferred by the mothers and daughters of the home school family? Do the majority of them chose to dress similarly so they can identify themselves with other like minded families when out in public? Is the plain attire a statement of some sort? Is there a reason, from my observations, that homeschooling girls/women tend to shun modern* clothing? Please, enlighten me.
I know many will comment that it is a modesty issue, however; I would like to interject that you can be dressed completely modest and still look modern*.
*Note: I chose my words very carefully here. I say 'modern' with no intent to mean 'unattractive' because I know people's taste differ greatly.
