How do schools always seem to know exactly how to make all students look uncomfortable and unattractive? Uniforms surely serve some purpose, but unless it is to stifle a girlís fashion sense completely, it is unclear what that purpose is. There are ways to get around the doldrums brought on by standardized dress, and we have tips to help you find your way to total school cool.

Gothic and Goth Dolls

Dress Your Head!

Even if you canít control your clothing selection, you can certainly control your hair and makeup. If you are a Punk or Goth hiding inside a plaid skirt and knee socks, let your inner spirit shine through with a fantastic spiked or styled do. Staying with the latest hair and make-up trends is an absolute must for those subjected to dress code drama.


Supposedly, everyone looks the same now that they are in uniform, but try to think of that uniform as a backdrop for the palette of your face. Wear fresh and carefully applied make-up along with carefully coifed locks, and it will be obvious how much of a grasp you have on the here and now. On the contrary, there is nothing more stereotypical than a dowdy uniform on a girl with stringy unkempt hair, so donít let that be you! Show off, even if the show stops at the neck. Try out our different hairstyles on your uniformed doll here at the Doll Palace to see what a bang some bangs can make.

School Uniform Dolls

Accessorize!

They tell you the shirt, they tell you the skirt, but often schools donít limit accessories. Use the small items to make a big statement. Add a flashy hair clip to the hair youíve worked so hard to perfect if you want to show off your princess flair, or wear killer shoes to show your inner vixen. Chunky jewelry is in, so add some to make your outfit compete. Coordinate colors with your uniform and you might even make people think you wore the entire outfit on purpose. After all, Brittany looked great in hers. Use the dolls to see how far you can go with shoes and accessories. Can you get away with fishnets and knee-high boots? Try it out and see!

Bend, Donít Break, the Rules

So, the rules say white button down? Nobody says it has to be the ugliest white shirt you can find. Take the uniform requirements more as guidelines than steadfast rules. After all, rules are made to be broken - slightly. Is you plaid skirt hitting your knees? Find a good tailor to take it up a few inches, or roll it a few times at the waist to get it to a more appropriate length. Instead of finding a shirt bulky enough to fit your brother, shop carefully to find one specifically tailored to fall along the lines of a girlís body. Not only will it be more flattering, it will probably be more comfortable.

To be your best, you have to look your best, or at least feel like you did the best you can. If youíve lucked out with a half-way decent uniform, enjoy it and send style vibes out to those of us trying to figure out what in the world they are thinking making girls wear neckties!

good ideas in this one, but i have to say, i love wearing ties to school. dressing up as if you were a ceo of an important company gives you a good excuse to wear accesories that would normally not be permitted. also, my school has a majorly strict policy , but is they do not put limits on what kind of jewelry you wear, jackets, of hair accessories...

this would be really helpful, but my school limits accesories, and the hair ties HAVE to be black. Plus, my school starts too early to have time to get up and fool around with my hair to make it look "cool".

I wish I had these ideas when I was in elementary school. I had to wear a uniform, and it was horrible. Whie, red, or navy blue polo shirt, and khaki or navy blue bottoms. Thankfully, that was then, this is now. I'm a junior in high school. I'd die if I had to wear them now.

I agree with this gossip column. My school is a uniform school. Not nearly as many people pay attention to the uniform as the princepal would like but who really likes uniform anyway? This column would totally help the people in my school who are forced to wear uniform to school. I mean come on you can look smart but still be cool.
