Should you force your child to dress a certain way?


I have a teenage daughter that dresses in almost all black and wears black eye liner. She is a normal, happy teen, she just likes the way she looks like this. She is a straight A student in an advanced education curriculum, so her grades are not suffering. She does get bullied at school because of how she looks though, which is why I am concerned. However, on occasion when she wears a skirt or other colors, she gets picked on even more for changing her appearance. Should I just let her continue to express herself through dress or put my foot down?
