September! The month that every student dreads. The moment we have to pack away all our summer clothes and settle on that one dull outfit every day-School uniform. Here at Asian Style magazine we have come up with 5 top tips to show off your stylish side while still maintaining your school’s dress code policy.
- It’s all in the (h)air
Even the strictest of school uniform policies will allow variation in hairstyles so why not try a sleek, high ponytail or a messy bun to add some oomph to your look.
Don’t forget the accessories in your hair. There’s plenty to choose from- hair clips, colourful scrunchies, cute bows and cool headbands. These are great ways to channel that preppy school look.
From ballet flats to loafers- the possibilities are endless. We know schools are strict on their black shoes only policy but there are plenty of options to choose from to show off your personal style.
- Add some sparkle
Pick out a cool necklace and bracelet or two. If your school doesn’t allow jewellery, try getting some cute studs or accessorise with a watch. Not only will you be adding a touch of chic to your outfit but you will be dressed practical too as you don’t want to be arriving late to class.
Apply lightly brushed bronzer on cheeks, forehead, nose and chin for a more natural face. Also, make sure your eyebrows are on fleek (groomed and shaped).
Some lip balm or gloss on lips, with a light application of mascara and your good to go. Remember to NEVER cake on your makeup. Simplicity is way more attractive.
A new coat that will flatter your figure, a stylish new hat or scarf with definitely add a pop of colour to uniform and will keep you fashion forward. And of course, don’t forget your school bag or backpack. A satchel looks very scholarly while a floral backpack suite the girly girl- there’s plenty to choose from.
And there you have it. 5 steps to turn your once boring school corridor into a fashion forward catwalk (all within school uniform regulations of course).
