School uniforms are great time savers. These can save you a few minutes every morning, which you would otherwise spend in choosing a dress for the day. The purpose behind introducing uniforms in schools is to bring uniformity among students from different backgrounds. If you ask the students themselves, they are likely to complain that the uniforms stifle their individuality and independence.
Fortunately, there is a way to make the school dress stand out without having to break the rules at all.
Know what you can do
As a first step to personalise your school uniform, you should know what alterations and additions you can make to the dress. This way you eliminate the risk of being penalised for breaking the school’s rules and regulations.
Consider the alterations and additions
Once you have figured out what changes or additions you can make to the dress, then list out what all you want to do to the dress to make it more personalised. Think of the following:
- Changing the buttons on the blazer to more fun ones.
- Changing the shoe laces to fancy ribbons.
- Altering the shoe type while retaining the colour, if permissible.
- Wearing a shorter tie with a fatter or thinner knot.
- A blazer in a slightly larger size to give it a baggy style.
To get all this done, simply take your dress to a school uniform manufacturer. Still, no matter what other changes you make to the dress, do not forget that the school logo and name must always be in place as required.
Get some cool accessories
Remember, your school has laid down the rules for the uniforms and not the accessories. In this regard, girls have greater freedom than the boys. So let your imagination go wild with:
- Hair bands
- Pens in the pocket
Customise your school uniform using these tips and you can be sure that you will look different even among that mass of uniforms.
