Jumpers that’ll stay looking new all year, trousers with adjustable hems in case of growth spurts and pinafores with permanent pleats – we’ve got school uniform sorted
Boys’ uniform winners: long-sleeved shirts, jumpers and trousers
In the coming months, school uniform has to work hard, keeping kids feeling comfortable whether they’re in a draughty hall or an overheated classroom and ensure they stay warm and dry when they’re outside. Layering is key in how to style school uniform in winter: for boys, long-sleeved shirts and trousers replace their shorter summer counterparts, while jumpers and thermal vests provide versatile warmth. Clever tech will keep clothes looking smart longer and save you time: our jumpers have StayNew tech to reduce bobbling and colour loss, while easy-iron and non-iron finishes mean less time ironing.
Girls’ uniform winners: cardigans, trousers and pinafores
Pack away lightweight gingham dresses and skirts and short-sleeved tops and swap in pinafores, skirts, trousers and long-sleeved shirts and blouses during the winter months. Jumpers and cardigans are an essential extra winter layer and tights are key in how to style school uniform to add warmth during the coldest months of the school year. Permanent pleats ensure that skirts and pinafores will look smart all term while stain and weatherproof fabrics repel water and spills to reduce the need for washing.
