How To Update Your School Uniform (without getting in trouble)


Schools around the country have begun transitioning back to in-person classes. Here it happened before spring break at the school I teach fashion design at and for my 11th grader daughter, her school will be back in-person next week.

With this return to the classroom comes some pushback from students (who have basically been in pajamas for a year) about the restrictions of school uniforms. But before they go breaking the rules in the name of "self expression" and getting themselves in trouble, here are ways that they MAY be able to add some personality to their uniforms while remaining within the dress code.


I made this video for Mastery High School in Camden, NJ and all of the suggestions are allowed there but be sure to check with YOUR school first because every school has it's own guidelines.
