One of the ways you can allow your daughter a bit of freedom, whilst still remaining within the rulebook, is to find uniform that is cut in a more flattering way. The boxy unisex shirts of old are still available, but to a teenage girl who is awkward about her body anyway this are akin to wearing a sack. You can find some great slightly fitted shirts, designed for young ladies, in uniform shops, supermarkets, such as George at Asda, and department stores. These are the type of shirt ladies would wear to an interview and are smart yet flattering. If your daughter attends a school where blazers are a requirement then shop around to find one that flatters rather than swamps her frame. This need not be a major expense and you can find some great school blazers from ASDA George.
Secondary school is a place for learning, but growing up is both painful and difficult and much of a teenager’s time is spent trying to avoid embarrassment. If you discuss and compromise with your daughter she is less likely to spend her school day fussing over fashion and worrying about what her peers think, and spend more time getting on with her work.
Have a great day! xx
