From the education point of view, sociologists argue that when students are allowed to wear clothes of their own choice, more than studies, they spend time on choosing a wardrobe which would make them a hit in the universities, especially with the opposite sex. This can have a negative impact on their education and their grades can fall. So, by making formal dress compulsory, universities are creating an atmosphere of learning.
