Getting creative with standardized dress codes

Sept. 24, 2010 at 4:24 a.m.


More schools are writing stricter policies on dress codes, eliminating some of the fashions that students don that once made them unique.

This is not the end of their outward personality, however, but the beginning of new accessory trends.

Dillard's at the Victoria Mall helped us outfit our teen models to illustrate these accessories.

Destani Villarreal, an incoming freshman at Victoria East High School, is the 14-year old daughter of Ruben and Leanne Castaneda and David Villarreal. The straight-A student will also participate in this year's Miss Victoria Pageant.

"The uniform dress code is not as bad as I thought it would be. We can still wear all the jewelry we want and can still show our personality through what we wear. The jeans and capris or khaki shorts are not as bad as you would think. There are lots of styles and you can dress them up with a cool belt. The polo shirt rule is not bad either. Some kids used to be made fun of because of what they wear, but it won't happen anymore because now we will all basically be wearing the same thing. The only downside is some people may not be comfortable in how they look with the new dress code."

"I don't mind (the new dress codes). They're a good idea, for the most part, but I wish that they would have a casual Friday or something like that."
