The largest European country in which there is a school uniform is the United Kingdom. In many of its former colonies, the form was not abolished after independence, for example in India, Ireland, Australia, Singapore, South Africa, Cyprus and Hong Kong.
In France, a uniform school uniform existed in 1927-1968. In Poland – until 1988.
In Belgium, the school uniform is only in some Catholic schools, as well as in private schools founded by the British. Typical clothes – pants and skirts are dark blue, white or blue shirt and tie.
In Germany there is no uniform school uniform, although there is a debate about its introduction. Some schools have introduced uniform school clothing that is not a form, since pupils can participate in its development. What is characteristic, even during the Third Reich, schoolchildren did not have a uniform form – they came to classes in everyday clothes, in the form of Hitler Youth (or other children’s public organizations).
In the US and Canada there is a school uniform in many private schools. In public schools there is no uniform form, although some schools have introduced dress code (English dress code).
In Cuba, the form is compulsory for all students in schools and higher education institutions.
EN :: BLOGTOBER 5 : Here we go! My blog finally turned into fall as well. I really love fall because I like wearing skirts in combination with ankle boots and leather jacket. What I love however more is Indian summer which is unfortunately not so common in Ireland. My Slovak family and friends though could enjoy it in full glory last days while Ireland was getting ready for the hurricane which was the theme number one in Ireland lately. Everything was closed today – schools, courts, shops, banks, etc. – to protect everyone. The part where I am living was luckily not so affected, but I have to say we had a strong wind throughout the day as well and I still can hear it. I really can´t imagine how it looked like somewhere in Cork or Wexford where it should hit in its biggest strength! I hope everyone is safe.
Well we were shooting this outfit last week and I decided to wear black and burgundy combination. Burgundy is definitely one of my favorite fall colors and it really belongs to this season. Very recently I bought these colorful tights and to be fair I had a problem to combine them with some pieces. That´s the reason why I stuck with the same color and I picked the burgundy shirt on top. I would definitely like it with some burgundy ankle boots to create some monochromatic look and elongate legs a little bit. Another tip is wearing over the knee boots and let the color show just a little bit to brighten your outfit up. As far as colors I would maybe combine them with some black, dark blue, grey or even mustard top! And I would not combine them with two or more different colors as the tights are a very noticeable piece catching others attention.
How about you? Do you wear colorful tights? And do you find them tricky to combine? ♥
combine the tights with pieces in the same color as tights and with black
if you want to add colors, pick one contrast color
do not combine them with two or more different colors to prevent yourselves from looking tastelessly
choose neutral black shoes or shoes in a same color as tights to optically elongate legs
if you are afraid to combine colorful tights in its all glory, try trendy over the knee boots and let them peek out just a little bit
those braver can choose all outfit pieces in similar colors and create extravagant monochromatic look “tone in tone”
remember that these are not rules just my opinions and tips…fashion has no boundaries and you can play with it accordance to your style 🙂
