Just about every school has a dress code of some kind. Some schools have uniforms and are very strict about them. Some schools have uniforms, but there is room for some creative expression as long as you follow the rules. Some schools don’t allow tank tops or shorts. Some schools don’t allow hats.

Today’s Writing Prompt puts the school dress code question to you. How do you deal with your school’s dress code? Is it possible to follow the rules and still show your own unique style?

How do you dress for success at school? Leave your answers in the Comments!

    At all the schools of my country we must use uniforms EVERY day
    You guys are lucky you are allowed to use your own clothes even if you have a dress code it is easier to express your self without uniforms

    I believe that you can still show your own unique style even if you are wearing a uniform. How? Maybe you can wear a few accessories that makes you look like the true you, but not too many. Then, you can dress your hair any style you like. Example is fishtail, french braid, ponytail, pigtail, etc. Lastly, show off your own personality to show the inner you. Do not change who you are just to fit in at school. There’s nothing more that’s you-er than you. And what I commented is truer than true! :)

    At my school, we don’t have a dress code.we can’t wear hats, tank tops, or short shorts to school.We are only allowed to wear shorts that are down to our thy’s and longer.We don’t have to wear uniforms.It could be possible to follow the rules and still show your own unique style sometimes.For school, I usually wear shorts and a t-shirt unless it is picture day the, I have to dress up.

    Also I think that uniforms are cumbersome because you have to wash them every night unless you get one for everyday of the school year (not likely). Also uniforms are not cool they don’t let you express who you are.

    You should always follow the school rules on dress code. Schools usually let you wear whatever you want (other than schools with dress code), as long as it is the appropriate length, and not anything with inappropriate language, sigs, etc.

    I have a dress code at my school:
    - No hats
    - No shirts that show out stomachs
    - If our shorts are shorter than where your fingertips meet your thighs when you put them staight down, they are too short
    - No shorts after October 25th
    - Tank tops have to be the width of three of you fingers or more
    -No leggings unless they are under a dress, skirt, of shirt that is long enough to cover your bottom
    - If we have holes in our jeans, you teacher will send you to the office, and the principal will duct tape them

    I always say: When in doubt, don’t wear it!!!

      at my school there is no open toed shoes, no cut off shorts, no rips in shorts or jeans or shirts, no spaghetti straps, your shorts have to be 4 inches above the knee, your pants cant sag even if you cover it with your shirt, you cant see any of your under-garments, you cant see any of your stomach or back in your shirt, and the pictures on shirts have to be school appropriate which means no guns no bombs no profanity or any words that give the idea of profanity, or you have to change into your PE clothes

    I also can only wear school jackets or red, gray, black, or navy jackets to school with no logos (only school logos allowed).
    For free dress days we:
    have the same shoes and socks rule
    shirts can’t be tank tops
    no band tees other than christian ones
    no fringe or frayed jeans/cutoffs

    We don’t have to wear uniforms at my school. I like that we don’t have to because then we would be wearing the same old uniform everyday and if the uniform doesn’t get washed then you probably wouldn’t have a uniform to wear to school. Unless you have two or three uniforms. I love wearing my own style to school.

    If you still want to follow the dress code and wear your own style I would say um… I got it when you want to wear your long sleeves shirt put that one then.. put on your school shirt I tried that it was okay and stylish wear your jeans IF they are good,blue,not ripped, and smelling fresh. Wear any belt I’m sure that’s surely okay and if your wearing shoes.. shoes um that’s okay as long if your not doing socks and sandals or huge socks with high heel shoes.Any hats only wear them when your OUTSIDE on a hot day and you need shade jackets uh oh yeah those are totally okay and scarfs wear them on cold days if you need anything write back to me please

    My school says NO holes in jeans or else you’ll have to go home and change or tape them up and they say no spaghetti straps,or any shirt that is not at least two inches wide across the shoulder. We dont have to wear uniforms so I am grateful for that. For all the kids that wear uniforms, you can wear some bracelets,necklaces,or earrings. You can express yourself with your attitude,personality,and voice.

    My school does have a dress code. Nobody really pays any attention to our school’s dress code. We can’t ware short shorts, tank tops with spaghetti straps, hats, sunglasses, shirt that have low hanging necks and more. In P.E. we must wear our P.E. uniforms or the Teacher will lower your grade. Teachers never enforce the dress code ,except in P.E., so it doesn’t really matter. Usually we follow the dress code without even thinking about it.

    If there was a “dress code” at my school, I wouldn’t want to follow them. Beacuse fashion expreses felling and the way you roll. I don’t like dress codes at all because other people don’t let you show and express feeling and te way you roll. Dress codes are something on never to do list.

My school can not wear sunglasses or hats in school but if it is winter time we could wear hats. we can not dye our hair completly a diffrent color or we can’tput the top of the hoodie on our head. over the years I found out we can do thoese things at recess but our school dose not like when we wear flip flops. or paint our nails. A lot of people wear flip flops and paint there nails but they do not get in trouble they just do not like it. our dress code is not very strict i am happy.also we are not aloud to wear cut offs.

    There really isn’t much freedom in accessories either. Any hair band,bracelet,earring or even SOCKS you wear has to be in the school colors.
    Hats aren’t allowed in the building,which I believe is a rule in many places.

    My school dress code just got changed so that shorts only have to be as long as your thumb instead of your fingertips. This makes it easier for me to find shorts because I have longer arms. The whole reason that my dress code got changed is because somebody started a petition. I suggest that if you don’t agree with something, take action to change it instead of standing around doing nothing.

    At my school, shorts must come to ur fingertips and tank tops must be at least 3 fingers. This makes it hard 4 people with long arms (like me) 2 find appropriate shorts, then u c people with shorts half ur length because their arms r super short and it’s annoying. We also have the rule about no mid-drifts or bra straps showing and no explicit messages. But the popular kids get away with breaking dress code, but if anybody else breaks it, they get told to go change. In grade 5 I switched schools and got told off for wearing a too-short skirt when I didn’t know about the rule. The same skirt was fine at my old school because they weren’t strict about dress code. The funny thing is that both schools had the same approved dress code, one school was just more strict about it. I think that if the district school board has a board-wide dress code than all the schools should show the same strictness towards it. Then it would make transitioning between schools easier. You wouldn’t have to worry about ur shorts being too short at a new school when they were fine at your old school.

    I think schools have to show some restraint. If the girls at my school didn’t have dress codes, they would barely have anything on! But, at the same time, I feel like some schools have too strict of a dress code. I don’t understand why you can’t wear hats or have your jacket zipped up. If I’m cold, why can’t I try to keep myself warm? The only reason to wear a jacket is to zip it up so you don’t freeze in the colder classrooms!

    My school is pretty strict about how long clothes are. Shorts have to be at least as long as your fingertips. And you can’t wear tank-tops that have skinny straps. Only thick tank-top straps. And also, you can’t wear shoes that don’t cover your feet to P.E. (Physical Education if your wondering), or high heel shoes.

    My school does not allow hats but I don’t have any hats. It also does not allow skinny straps but I also don’t have that. It doesn’t allow flip flops but i don’t have that either.

    my school is pretty lenient on clothes but we do have some rules that must be followed. My style is pretty relaxed, i like my jeans and tees and sometimes i like to be a bit more professional so i throw on a cardigan or something. I also am absolutely in love with my TOMS and hoodies, i wear them almost everyday!

    it is that you cant where tank tops and you cant where short shorts you can where shorts but just not short shorts. If u follow that you can be creative and show your style and have some fun!

    My school make us wear black pants and white tops.I deal with my school’s dress code by putting a unique style in it by adding colors and being stylish.It is possible to follow rules and have your unique style because you can go shopping with your friend or someone and you can add swag to your school outfit and maybe some classy and pretty shoes.I feel that some schools use color code for safety so its important to wear uniform because :an example is if you were ditching school someone will spot you and tell your principal for your safety.I conclude that school should use uniform for the students safety and its important for students safety.

    I think that one should express their feelings not by their looks and appearance but by their words and inner beauty. We can all be fashionable in the inside. When will people learn that it is in the inside where beauty counts!

    We have a dress code but its not very strict(: we cant wear clothes that show our stomachs or have bare backs. Those are easy to follow because i dont have too many shirts like that. we also cant wear short shorts but its easy to follow that rule and still show you style!

      Polo-color of your choice/Kaki PANTS/and Dress Shoes. You are allowed to wear cardigans and sweaters OVER THE POLO. I don’t mind the uniform much because I do BELIEVE that it enhances the academic experience.

      my school has a horrible school dress code. your not allowed to wear spaghetti strapped tops or racer backs and the shorts have to be long enough so that when you put your arms to your side they are longer than your longest finger. i mean whatthe heck some people (like me!) have longer arms than other students do which makes it unfair.

    1. kiwicupcake14

      I have the same code as you purplechihuahua exept the shorts have to end 3 fingers below your longest finger! Sooo unfair! Basically your shorts have to be at your knee!

    My school doesn’t allow hats. They also don’t allow clothes that are too short/revealing/tight. Or swear words or stuff with explicit messages. It’s fine with me, because all I ever wear is t-shirts and jeans.

    My school does not have a dress code, we have uniform. But the school I will go to has a dress code. You can’t wear things like short shorts, tank. tube or halter tops. Or a lot of jewelry, or hats and scarves and much more. Even though it is no uniform, it has a dress code. Even though, there is not much to wear, I can accessorize, add things to my clothes. The dress code is not against everything in my [almost only Forever 21] closet. I can still be stylish. The dress code is no problem, I have to follow it or I will get detention, so… Well, I can still be stylish so I don’t care.

    I really don’t get uniforms. They’re like a cage to our imagination. I mean wearing really revealing clothes and jewelry that clink together is distracting, but some kids just wear pants and a t-shirt. I wear clothes that fit my personality not someone else’s. I mean they tell us not to be the same like everyone else, but uniforms go directly against that!

    how i dress for school is very simple-wear the school uniform and school pants
    it’s really not that bad
    i show myself using voice,writing and projects
    i don’t think you need fashion to show yourself
    and you could follow rules and show your unique style
    but this is just my opinion :)
    because i am not very interested in fashion

      I have to wear a uniform. I hate it! I have to wear polo shirts and UGLY pants. It is so ugly what we have to wear! So my dress code is VERY strict. Like no vest or sweaters when you go outside when it is hot, but I think that is just showing your style! Well thanks for reading what I have to say!
