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!

    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

    Sport shorts, cowboy boots, anything sounds good to me. I know dress code, well I have always dressed appropriately because it’s my religion but I think the school made a good decision with dress code. As long as there are no uniforms involved. :)

    Well, I used to go to a charter school and we could only wear uniforms, except on Friday you could pay a dollar and wear whatever you want.

    BUT! Now I’m home schooled, so I can wear whatever I want all day long! (even my PJ’S :D )
