From Head to Toe

From Head  to Toe
Date: 
August 1962

From Head to Toe is a section in "Inside Information," a guidebook for women published by the Dean of Women's Office in 1962. This section provides information on appropriate dress, stating, "the stylish coed is the one who has an eye for those things in which she looks best. To be stylish does not necessarily mean to attract attention. " Other suggestions include, wearing sturdy shoes, having proper rain attire, not wearing ankle-length skirts (because an individual might have to run to class), and finally to be meticulous about one's appearance. They caution students not to wear anything that might be "down right hazardous" and finally stress that an individual will be "judged-and liked because of the kind of person you are-not by how many pairs of shoes, suits, and dresses you possess."
