Short or long, high school girl’s skirt issue

October 1st, 2012

Did (Do) you have school uniforms in your high school or junior high school? I had very classic ones when I was in junior high school and high school. We had uniforms for PE classes and swim suits as well.

It is pretty normal in Japan, but when I moved to France, I noticed that it is not that normal in abroad. Of course if there are not school uniforms, students can enjoy their clothes as they want.

Well for me uniforms were good. I don’t need to think about what to wear every morning and didn’t need to buy new clothes either. Teenagers are difficult.

When I was younger, I wanted to look different with others or wanted to be someone special. So if I didn’t have the uniforms, it should have been pretty problematic to choose the clothes every day. Well, but having a school uniform doesn’t stop you to be creative either though.
In my high school, girls make their skirts very long or very short. Of course there are some girls who don’t touch the skirts too, but let’s see the girls who like to be creative. The long skirt girls buy the longest (biggest size) of the skirt in school and enjoy the length. It often came until the ankle. Short skirts were very short. Like the picture, you can easily see their knees. Long skirt girls tended to be more creative I would say. They have a bit like hippie style bag or sox too. The short skirt girls were more girly. They made their hair curly like princess and had pretty bags too. I was in the long skirt group. The reason is just simply I didn’t like my legs. To wear such a short skirt, you have to like your legs.
When I was in high school, I didn’t really think about what other people think about our uniform, but after I graduate I feel like it can be pretty dangerous for girls who put mini mini skirt. They put this length of mini skirt in winter as well. It can be cold and moreover it is a bit too sexy. A lot of girls use trains or busses to go to school. If my daughter cut her skirt like that and go to school with normal transportation system with lots of men, I would be very worried.

High school days are one of my best memories. You can enjoy yourself freely. I didn’t know that it was such a wonderful time in my life. After I graduate, there are always jobs, responsibility, to be an adult. It is also interesting, but it is different with high school days.If you are still in school, try to enjoy your days! But be safe, there are other people around you. Some of the other people can think of the things you have never imagined!!!
