Spice Up Your School Uniforms

Students have it rough nowadays. Why? Because they have a lot of things to do in school to keep up and pass. They have to deal with a lot of tests, projects, note taking, memorization, essay writing and mind you, even the latest fashion in school just to fit in. If your uniform dates back to when the school first opened and doesn’t match the newly required attire, for sure, your schoolmates will laugh at you.

Most school administrators oblige parents to buy the proper uniforms. In college, some universities doesn’t compel students to wear one but instead just casual and decent attires. But in private or public grade schools and high schools, a uniform is a must. By instituting the required attire, those less fortunate families won’t have to worry about their kids being bullied for wearing inexpensive and not superfluous clothing. Students can concentrate more on their studies and excel if they are not made fun for wearing hand me down clothing, right?

School uniforms are not to be altered in any way. It may be plain looking but nowadays, school admins allow a bit of creative accessories such as button necklaces, belts and ribbons. Though these add-ons must be approved otherwise, you can let that idea go. These accessories must be detachable or easily removable.

How to spice up your uniforms? Well, that’s easy! Here are some ideas:

  • Have matching team jackets, jumpers or cardigans to make them look chic and snazzy.
  • Instead of the usual white blouse and plain coloured skirt for girls, why not use a Gingham dress with matching hair accessory.
  • For boys, you could instead deviate from the norm and use Polo Shirts and sweatshirts
