Let's face it - school uniforms are pretty boring. There isn't much variety, everyone looks the same, and there are so many rules that it's hard to be unique and show off your own style and individuality. I only have one more year of wearing a school uniform daily, so I decided that instead of dreading the dull colours and strict rules I'd make the most of it! Today I've styled some school uniform looks for you guys that will (hopefully) get you a little bit more excited about school uniforms, and have also tried out a few different ways of making it completely my own. Depending on your school and it's own uniform rules, you can spice up your uniform with hair ribbons, unique hair styles, uniform coloured accessories such as a tie or headband, different variations of school socks and stockings, and of course school shoes.
School shoes are where I always find the most "freedom" in the uniform rules - they have to be leather lace up at my school, but there is just so much variety nowadays that you can find something perfectly suited to your style! This year I think I've found my favourite school shoe yet - the Madison shoe by #ClarksAustralia. I've always been drawn to things that are a bit preppy and sophisticated looking, and these shoes are just that. The contrast sole, fine stitching and soft leather are amazing. Not only are they super stylish, but they're SO comfortable.
The shoes are based on the best selling adult range (over 170 years in the making!) that has been worn by the likes of Kanye West, Zac Efron and Pharrel Williams, so you know it's going to look great. Plus, they have memory foam padding inside and ahh it's just so comfy! Perfect for walking around campus all day and being active at lunch. Usually when looking for school shoes I have to choose between comfort and style, but with @ClarksAustralia I get the best of both worlds. (sorry, I had to!)
How do you make your school uniform a bit more unique? I'd love to know! x
