Making School Uniforms Uniquely Their Own

Bummed about school uniforms this year? In collaboration with JCPenney, Kaitlyn & Sebastian took a unique shopping trip to prove there are plenty of options to style original back-to-school uniform looks WITHOUT breaking any rules. Back to School Uniform looks JCPENNEY accessories

I was a little worried this year might be a challenging one. Not because we will officially have two tweens in middle school but because this is the year we are starting over. Starting completely from scratch in a new city, new campus, making all new friends, and new uniforms. We’re the kind of parents that have always allowed our children their own personal style and expression. While this wouldn’t be the first school for our children to have worn uniforms, it was the first time they would have flexibility in what styles of uniform they could wear. In an effort to make uniform shopping lighthearted and fun we took a Friday afternoon and headed over to JCPenney. We gave each child a budget and reviewed the parameters of their new school dress code carefully before letting them shop. They were actually excited to pick out school uniforms!!!

I have to tell you, we REALLY did have a lot of fun together and I was pretty impressed with the unique uniform choices they came up with. They also have a few tips for making a school uniform look your very own without breaking the rules. Their number one school tips for styling your school uniform is to accessorize! Backpacks, jackets, and shoes are all great ways to make a look your own. Switching it up from ballet flats to sneakers can completely change a look. Read on for a few more tips and examples of how Kaitlyn and Sebastian styled beyond the basic uniform and each developed unique looks they loved.

Kaitlyn discovered a black jumper paired with a white button up uniform shirt that she spun around in like it was a princess dress. She also picked out an IZOD khaki Skater Skirt and paired it with a perfectly fitting blazer. Going a little more casual, she choose a fitted red polo with a pair of casual slim fit khakis rolled the hem and for a little flair choose a pair of floral sneakers to personalize this look.

Sebastian is always a wild card. He’s a pretty easy-going, athletic kid but his new school dress code doesn’t allow for athletic clothing to be worn during school hours. He chose to embrace it full on and his first look was dress shirt and tie. He even found a perfect belt. his second look was more comfortable and casual: Red polo and khakis. I noted he did find a pair of high-top Converse sneakers to give the look a little more of his own style.

After we were done in the dressing room we headed over to the shoe department because new shoes are always one of the best parts of back to school shopping. Sebastian admired the bright white Adidas on display but was torn between these and a few others pair we had seen online. Asa professional boy mom, I know we’ll be going through several pairs this year so I assured him we’d be getting a few pairs to put into the school year rotation. Just don’t grow too fast, okay son?
