Jane Aldridge Constantly Violated Dress Code—Did Your Outfits Get You In Trouble, Too?

When you’re a teenager and have a closet like Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge, you’d imagine that the high school halls would be your runway. Turns out, Jane’s dreams were often cut short because she was constantly getting in trouble at school for her fashion choices. In this video (starting around 42 seconds), she explains that “I felt so repressed by public school, how, like, they tried to make every kid the same and if you didn’t wear the same thing as everyone else then you had to go to, like, a special class … I was sent to the office everyday for the shoes I wore.” We admit that we were sometimes reprimanded for violating dress code—although our belly tops and showing bra straps were a far cry from Chanel platform heels.

What about you—were you ever sent to the principal’s office for your high school wardrobe? Did you act out with fashion as a teen? [Stylelikeu] Keep reading »

Jeans Are The New Power Suit

President Obama gave fashion critics something to talk about when he displayed a pair of “mom jeans” at a baseball game, Nicolas Sarkozy and his lovely wife Carla both donned denim for a recent trip to Egypt, and the Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, chose jeans for a dinner date with Obama. Steve Jobs kept his fashion taste simple through the years — a black turtleneck and a pair of Levi’s 501s.

Suddenly, jeans are the new power look. Keep reading »

No More Little “Miss Sexy” Pants

Apparently, “Miss Sexy” pants are a little too, well, sexy for English school masters to stomach. The Nailsea School near Bristol, England has officially banned the $18, super-tight black trousers, deeming the VPLs (visible panty lines) and “Miss Sexy” label inappropriate for the young ladies who are so fond of them. As the “Miss Sexy”-wearing girl at left is suggesting with her pout, this decision is unlikely to be greeted with much enthusiasm by the skin-tight-pants-wearing student body at Nailsea. She looks about as pissed as “Gossip Girl” Jenny Humphrey might if her school told her she had to stop wearing shirts as dresses and actually vaguely conform to their uniform. Yikes.

Students Walk Out When Headmaster Says Girls’ Skirts Are Too Short

About 100 high school students in the U.K. used Facebook to stage a walkout from class Friday after the headmaster threatened a ban on skirts due to ever-shortening hemlines.

“Since half-term, the skirts have got ridiculously short,” headmaster Jane Holland wrote in a letter to the governors of Upton-by-Chester High School in Chester. “The skirts are too revealing especially on staircases. It’s not appropriate for the time and the place.” Keep reading »

Sexist Principal Mandates “Pants For Boys, Dresses For Girls!”

Chelsea Sarvis, a senior at South Carolina’s Chapin High School, wants to wear pants to her graduation. But according to Principal Mike Satterfield (surprise, surprise, it’s a male), unless she wears a dress, she won’t be attending. That’s right—if she doesn’t conform to what I thought were antiquated stereotypes and flaunt a “feminine” frock, she won’t be able to go to her own graduation.
