Many schools across the planet require their students to wear some kind of a uniform. For many students, this is not always their desired choice of clothes to wear to school. As a student, you likely have no choice but to comply with the school regulations for all the years you will be in school. It is a brutal fact that as a student you spend a great part of your day in uniform.
However, who said you could not be fashionable and look great in your uniform? Here is how you can do that.
Things you can do to improve your look
- 1. Shop for a fitting uniform
Just because you have to wear uniform, does not mean it should not fit. You can significantly improve how you look in your uniform if it fits you properly. Fitting does not mean it has to be too tight. If it is a dress or skirt, being a little short about knee length is acceptable. Make sure the material is of high quality and feels comfortable on your skin. If you are wearing a long sleeve shirt, folding the cuffs up to your elbows will make you look more stylish.
- 2. Use make-up wisely
Most schools allow you to have a simple make-up. You will be more attractive if you apply a simple concealer or blemish under eye circles, light mascara and lip gloss on your lips. Use a natural, sheer lip gloss with only a hint of color. If you are not a lip gloss person, then wear a tinted lip balm or Chap Stick. If your school does not allow any makeup, but your face really looks terrible on its own, you can use a tinted moisturizer. It is unnoticeable, and makes your skin flawless.
- 3. Wear the right shoes
While wearing high heels might look desirable, remember you are going to school not a party. Wear shoes that are close to the ground such as ballet flats. You can also choose to wear converse, which come in many patterns, colors and designs including low tops, high tops, clear, knee-highs and glittery. Flat shoes are stylish as well as comfortable to walk around in. These shoes are ideal in a school environment where there is a lot of moving around.
- 4. Do not forget to accessorize
When it comes to being fashionable in school uniform, accessories are your biggest assets. You have countless options when it comes to accessories. If your school allows it, you can use a cool jacket, scarf or hat to enhance your look in uniform. You can also get a stylish purse to put all your school things instead of carrying a backpack. This will give you a distinct, sophisticated and mature look. You can also dye your hair differently and put on a style that matches the natural shape of your head. Of course, you should not forget to put on simple jewelry such as earrings, a nice necklace, a cool wristwatch or bracelet.
For all the years you will be in school, you may not have the power to change the uniform you wear. Nevertheless, this should not stop you from being in fashion and looking great. With just a few changes and modifications to your clothing and body, you can pull it off. You will be more eager to go to school when you know you are looking great.
