It’s time for back to school and al­ready your kids are dread­ing the mo­ment when they have to put on that school uni­form.

The mo­not­o­nous hues of grey, white, khaki, plaid: they can feel their sense of style fad­ing as they know there’s no es­cap­ing the duds they will be forced to wear all year. Lucky for them, we’ve come up with a few ways to hold on to their sense of style, even if they’re re­quired to wear their school clothes and not their cool clothes. de­pends on the school and how strict it is to dress up your kilt, so make sure you ask! uni­form is by utiliz­ing their own hair. Fash­ion­able bar­rettes and hair bands are a great way to flash a lit­tle stand­out style. For guys? Dip­pity do it. Cre­ate a unique hair­style us­ing a lit­tle prod­uct to tame your mane! We aren’t say­ing load on the hair gel, but us­ing hair prod­ucts to add a lit­tle style to your coiff isn’t a bad idea. Just re­mem­ber to be mind­ful that many schools will not tol­er­ate wild colours or ex­treme dos. In­stead of fo­cus­ing on the cloth­ing items they can’t change, switch gears to the items they can. Adding in ac­ces­sories, like cool and in­ter­est­ing back­packs or tablet cases, is al­ways a sure way to stand out. Jew­ellery, like a charm bracelet with charms that each tell a story, can be a great unique piece. Girls: find a bright neck­lace that will high­light your fun sense of style. Boys: there’s noth­ing wrong with a sub­tle chain, class ring or even a nice watch, es­pe­cially to help you stay punc­tual for class!

Your child’s sense of style shouldn’t be ex­pelled just be­cause of the uni­form
