This competency-based preservice home economics teacher education module on sociological, psychological, and economic factors affecting clothing selection is the second in a set of four modules on consumer education related to textiles and clothing.

Following the module objectives and overview, two units of instruction are presented: (1) the influence of society on individual dress (includes five lessons on social conditions, psychological conditions, economic conditions, standards of appearance, and clothing values) and (2) individual differences and values, self-image and life style in clothing selection (includes two lessons on self-image and life style). Each lesson generally includes the following elements: narrative summary, suggested activities, suggested resources (readings), and progress check (with answer key). A module pre/posttest (with answer key) concludes the document.
