As I said in my previous post, l be posting a lot of “Back to School” posts, today we are starting with school uniform, I feel like there are a lot of debates about this topic so here is my very rumbly opinion 😂
I always used to hate wearing uniform to school and only when I was finally allowed to wear my own clothes, I realised that I was so stupid, or not fully appreciating all the good sides of wearing a uniform. People used to tell me how the go shopping for school clothes and I was really jealous, so when I was told that for the last two years of school (12 & 13) I’m allowed to wear whatever I want, I was really looking forward to that.
I hated every second of waking up, putting on the same shirt, same skirt, learning how to tie a tie again and again after holidays (I bet all of you watched how to tie a tie at least once in your life, don’t even lie to me). And shoes, oh God those shoes, that are so hard to find after the first half of September and that get ruined so so fast.
I hate how people in American movies manage to look so stylish and even sexy wearing a school uniform and we all looked like something between an ugly duckling and a cactus, and that’s definitely not the best look when you go through your awkward stage, no matter how perfect your hair and makeup looked in the morning, you would always look 10 times worse in a school uniform.
As you probably guessed I hated uniform even the sports uniform that gets really hard and even starts pulling off after a few months, from constant washing. So as soon as I got to year 12 all my outfits were ready (at least that’s what I thought). First two weeks went by perfectly and then I realized that I didn’t have anymore outfits, and I didn’t really want to wear the same things, so then this hard thing of mixing and matching came.
I spent hours in front of the closet trying to figure out my outfit for a day, it got easier in winter, since I could wear the same shirt with different tops, but then May oh God May.
The thing is it gets up to 35 degrees in May/ June and September where I live, and dress code is still a thing, so we are not allowed to wear shorts or tank tops in this heat which is crazy in my opinion.
So, I’m still debating whether I’m for or against school uniform, I definitely don’t miss it, but I think that everyone should go through wearing a uniform at least at some point in their lives.
Are you for or against school uniform, what kind of uniform did you have at school?
