“We’re seeing a trend of added flexibility when it comes to the styles of uniforms kids can wear in schools that demand them – but through accessorizing, these styles can be taken to a whole new level without breaking the rules,” says a Cookie’s senior company spokesperson. “Backpacks, jackets and shoes are all great ways to make a look unique; switching it up from ballet flats to sneakers can completely change the vibe of an outfit, as just one example.”
For girls’ accessories, Cookie’s representatives suggest elements such as jumpers paired with white button-up uniform shirts that will make any young lady feel like a princess, and they also point to IZOD’s khaki skater skirts paired with perfectly-fitted blazers or fitted red polos with a pair of casual slim-fit khakis rolled at the hem with floral sneakers.
When it comes to the boys, Cookie’s reps find that adding the perfect belt to that shirt-and-tie ensemble is an effective way of personalizing an outfit, in addition to recommending pieces such as red polos and khakis as well as high-top Converse sneakers for out-of-the-ordinary combos.
Cookie’s executives have also been studying the key influences on school uniform design in 2019, referencing themes of gender-neutrality, climate management and modesty that are dominating youth-geared fashion at the moment. According to Cookie’s research, schools in 2019 and beyond want to make the right choices in managing the diverse student bodies they have while students themselves want to feel comfortable, stylish and modern in what they are wearing.
To this end, the trends in boys’ clothing tends to lean towards slim-fit trousers and “city shorts,” with short styles featuring a fixed waistband and slim fit to give pupils a cooler choice in the warmer months without compromising on sophistication, while the inverted pleat dominates modern girls’ fashion, offering a way to introduce color and patterns into a school uniform.
