Although a cause and effect essay is a bit harder to write than your regular essay, I managed to pick a topic I felt suitable. The topic I found is clothing. Although many people think it's just talk that the clothing you wear determines your friends, but in actuality it does. Don't get me wrong, I know it does not stand true 100 percent of the time, but typically it does.

What someone wears can ultimately make what someone is, as in what their social standing is. As we get older it's harder to get higher in the social standings, unless through sports or clubs. For example, someone who wears Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, and Aeropostale would typically be labeled preppy. As it stands now, preppy people are at the top of the social ladder, their good looking, popular, and get along with everyone. The preppy people are the ones who usually run student government.

Most, but not all, are your stereotypical jock and cheerleader couple.

The next group is just your ordinary, middle class people. They're not the most popular, but not the most unpopular. They have some preppy friends but they mostly just stick to hanging out with the people they've know for a long time. This group of people usually gain better people skills because they try and make more friends, giving them confidence and the ability to take a task they would not typically take, they eventually grow up to be middle class people.

The final group is the unpopular kids. There's usually something wrong with them, maybe their crazy, maybe they smell, but there is usually a reason they don't have many friends. The people in this group mostly grow up and become the preppy and middle class people's bosses or end...
