Do trends like saggy pants affect performance?

Do fads like sagging pants affect classroom performance?  Popular culture undoubtedly shapes school fashion, but do the trends we see dawned by teens and late adolescents affect whether a person is successful?  Working with people over the years I’ve learned that often self-esteem is linked to outward appearance.
