Tomorrow marks my first day back at school, and as you can imagine, I’ve spent plenty of time trying to decide what I’m going to wear. I’m of the mindset that the clothing I choose to wear on the first day of school helps to set a precedent for the rest of the year. If I dress in sharp, trendy clothing, it will be hard to follow that up with some grungy items that set an entirely different tone. What I’d like best is to look through my closet and find only the clothing that really feels good one and seems to suit my personality.
If every outfit I had was a perfect one, I’d be able to get dressed every morning and know that I’m sending a message about my confidence and my personal sense of style. It’s tricky to define right now since I seem to be pulled in so many directions, but I’ll get there soon. In fact, I’m planning to get my wardrobe nicely sorted in the next few hours as I dig into my closet to play some serious dress up games with my personal style.

Nobody likes the idea of a dress code, and those of us who are stuck in school uniforms deserve a bit of pity from the rest of us, but even when you’re wearing a school uniform, you can still enjoy some great dress up games. Dress up games might be simpler when you have a choice of which clothing to wear every morning, but even if you’re dressed in the same duds as everyone else, you can use your creativity to find ways to make the clothing special and fun to wear, at least.
Using dress up games, you can start with the basics. Would a few carefully selected items make the school uniform easier to wear? Why wear a skirt that doesn’t fit well when you can have it altered slightly to fit across your back more easily or even shorted to a more flattering length? You can have your blouses tailored and by adding simple accessories like the right shoes and hair accessories, your overall appearance can eb dramatically changed making the school uniform the perfect candidate for dress up games.
