Locker Style Tips

Aug 25, 2015

A new year means a new opportunity to show your style and get super organized. A messy locker may be a sign of a creative mind, but it doesn't do much for your image or your work ethic either. Express your creativity with locker accessories instead of with a mess of crumpled papers. Here's how...

Organization

Let's get the organization part out of the way first... Pick up a locker shelf from Target, PBTeen, the Container Store. Amazon.com or Claire's in your favorite color. Put morning books on top, afternoon books on the bottom, or all books on top and lunch and other accessories on the bottom. However you decide to organize it, pick a system and stick with it.

There are some fabulous peel-n-stick or magnetic dry erase boards that feature calendars, mini memos or lots of big blank space to help you keep track of schedules, tests, after school activities or assignments. They come in so many different styles at PBTeen.com and Amazon.com that you'll be sure to find one that expresses your personality, whether you're a sk8r boy, Broadway diva, girlie girl, sports enthusiast, or just about anything else!

Attach a magnetic hook to hang a baseball cap, lunchbox, hairbrush, etc to the back wall. The door is a great place to hang a magnetic shelf to hold extra pens/pencils, notepads, hair accessories and other things you may not want to carry around all day.

Finally, to stay organized, every Friday, clean out your locker and take home all the papers you're finished with to organize them. And take home all opened food, drinks and snacks you have stashed in there, too!

Add Some Style

The organizers you choose are a good start for setting up your style, but with all the extra space, you can express your personality. Magnetic picture frames, a mirror and even a battery powered string of lights or chandelier add just the right personal touch.

Ever Been Stuffed Inside a Locker?

  • Tons of times!
  • Once, back in 7th grade.
  • I'm too cool for that sort of stuff.
  • No, but I stuff other kids in their lockers!

Do you have issues at school with dress code? Well, rules are rules but outside of school express yourself and whatever you feel works, wear it. If high heels and earrings are your thing then go for it. If crop tops and butt shorts describe your personality than let it be known. Guys judge and so do some Ladies but express "You!" Be yourself and don't let anyone else tell you who you are or who you have to be. I can't express to all of you how much fashion and popularity have come together these days, clothing lines have gone so far up that the personality of a person can be known by what they're wearing.
