A kid, often a Bratty Teenage Daughter, wants to go out with her friends, out on a date, or out to a party, but the way she's dressed does not please her guardians (usually an overprotective dad).

What happens can vary. Often the kid will obey, but in a huge huff. Other times a fight will break out, and might even cause enough bitter feelings to make the Conflict for the episode.

Compare Age-Inappropriate Dress, I Want My Beloved to Be Fashionable, Underdressed for the Occasion.
