Choosing the Best School Uniform for Winter
Choosing the best uniform for your upcoming school year can be tough, especially when winter comes and school uniform policies regulate the kind of jackets that can be worn. When it is chilly outside and everyone knows that snow and freezing temperatures are coming, it can be very tempting to purchase unapproved outerwear. Khakis can only provide a certain amount of warmth for winter weather and standing at bus stops at the crack of dawn can chill any student to the bone. Don't let your student freeze this winter; choose the best school uniform for winter by abiding by the school uniform policy and being creative with winter warming techniques.
Warm Up Your Pants
Choosing thicker-made khakis and khaki-colored corduroy can help warm up your lower half while still staying within the parameters of the school uniform policies instilled by individual school districts. Additional ways to keep warm for those who are cold-natured include: wearing tights or hose under your khakis, wearing knee-high socks or wearing long johns. As long as your additional measures of warmth are hidden under your school-approved uniform, your additional measures of warmth should be school-approved as well.
Bring Hand or Foot Warmers
If your school is especially chilly, consider bringing hand or foot warmers to keep you warm, while still abiding by your school uniform policy. Most hand or foot warmers can be found in the hunting section of your local super store and can be found at the checkout of most super stores and grocery stores in colder-climate areas. Hand warmers can be placed in the pocket of your school-approved outerwear and foot warmers can be placed in the soles of your shoes, between your sock and your shoe. Hand and foot warmers are beneficial because they usually last between 4 and 10 hours, so between one and two warmers can last the entire school day. If you are unsure about where to purchase hand or foot warmers, ask your local store manager or search online.
Layer, Layer, Layer
Of course, you are required to wear polos with perhaps a grouping of specifically colored camis or undershirts, but that does not limit you to the amount of layering that can be done to keep warm. Most schools will specify the forms of outerwear and clothing that can be worn in compliance with school uniform policies. Start with all school-approved uniform clothing pieces and begin layering with an undershirt and build from there, wearing multiple layers to keep warm. Plus, if for some reason you warm up in the middle of the day, you can simply run to the bathroom and remove a layer to cool off.
By being smart about your clothing choices, you can keep warm while still abiding by the school-approved uniform policies. Not all schools are the same, so make sure you ask questions if you are not sure if something is school-approved. Also consider asking school officials for suggestions on how to keep warm in chilly temperatures and if your classrooms are too cold for you to function properly. School is a place to learn, and most officials want to help students learn, so asking suggestions cannot hurt. Learn ways to stay warm this winter with your school-approved uniform clothing and simple tricks.
