Thread Name: BS: Girls' school trousers uk
Subject: RE: BS: Girls' school trousers uk
see, once they get to 6th form here (post-16) most schools - even a strict girls' grammar - doesn't have uniforms. Only private schools really continue it post-16. They can wear makeup and jewellery at D's school in 6th form, too. So you get this juxtaposition between the demure, fresh-faced uniformed ones, all blazers and skirts and flat-heeled shoes, and this explosion at 16 that's all about hair and makeup and jewellery. And they share the same school. Very odd.
