Was there ever a study that suggested that children become more successful / independent / happy / etc. when they're allowed to choose their own outfits from an early age?

My brain insists that I heard of such a thing, and brought it out in a conversation the other day. Following up after a "citation needed" comment I'm not finding anything on the Google. Usually my memory about this kind of random information is pretty accurate, so I'm holding out hope that I didn't file away some self-proclaimed expert touting anecdotal evidence.
(In case it's not clear, I'm not interested in anecdotes. Unless they're really, really, REALLY cute anecdotes, of course.)
