Belts, jewelry and shoes are the main avenues of expression when it comes to getting dressed for school in Victoria.
The Victoria school district's dress code requires tucked-in, buttoned, sleeved, collared and solid color shirts. Pants must be any shade of blue, black or khaki. The only non-collared shirt students can wear are spirit shirts.
While the outlook for fashionable wear opportunities may look bleak for some students, others have welcomed the challenge.
It holds the most important part of your outfit - your ID. Pick something shiny, so you'll know where to find it after you get home and accidently toss it on the floor.
Stick with studs, small buckles and bright colors. American Apparel makes a cute blue leather belt for about $20.
Ladies, do it while you can because bows are not cute after high school. Bold colors make a statement. Don't overdo it if you go the floral route because you might end up as a walking bouquet.
Charm bracelets make for good storytelling and are fun to make.
Statement necklaces are still in, right? On days when you can find a school-appropriate dress, add a bit of flair with a long necklace with a cute gem. Shop at Esty much? And guys, shark teeth are so 1995.
With school in full swing, you may want to hit up MadiTay's and grab a few of these bedazzled sports earring. You'll thank us later.
