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.

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
