Clothes should be seen as a form of expression that is within the scope of the protection of the freedom, when they are worn with intention and possibility to communicate. However, even when choice of clothes is protected, school rules on dressing is not always seen as limiting the freedom. That is not the case when the rules are general and neither aim to limit the freedom, nor have significant limiting effects. In addition rules that are neutral to the content and that only concern distribution of messages are also not considered to limit the freedom.
