How to Stand Out in Girl's School Uniforms

Wearing a private school uniform can suck because you have to wear the same thing every single day, not to mention the fact that you have to wear the same thing as everyone else in the class! So find out how you can make your average uniform look totally stylish and unique!

Skirts

Uniform skirts tend to be knee-length or longer, but if your school is a little relaxed about skirt lengths, try folding down the waistband a couple of times to shorten the length. Just don't go overboard and roll up your skirt into a mini!

Belts and Ties

Cinch a belt over your blouse or sweater, but leave the studded, oversized belts for the weekends and opt for a simpler one. If a necktie is part of your school uniform, then whip it off as soon as the bell rings and tie it around your waist for a great alternative to the classic belt.

Jewelry and Accessories

Make like Blair Waldorf and wear a pretty bow headband in your hair. Or go for a funkier look by piling on jelly bracelets and gold and silver bangles like Jenny Humphrey does. Wearing jewelry and hair accessories are one of the best ways to stand out in a sea of uniforms, so express your personal style with necklaces, earrings, rings, watches, bold nail polish and more. You can also let your personality shine through in your choice of a school bag, especially if you graffiti on it or attach funky pins.

Socks and Tights

Ditch those boring white socks for a pair of bright, colorful socks or patterned tights. Try neon-colored socks or plaid tights or leggings for a funky, punky look!

Bottom Line

Each school has a different school uniform policy. Some are relaxed about stuff like untucked shirts, while others have rules set in stone and won't let you get away with anything. So before you brighten up a boring uniform, first make sure your school allows it. And if they have strict rules about the dress code, just wait until you're out of class to express yourself.

you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
