19 Ways All '00s British Kids Fucked Up Their School Uniform
We went to great lengths to make sure we looked ~random~.
You'd roll up your blazer sleeves to give yourself that business chic look.
And sometimes rolled your shirt sleeves up over your blazer.
You made sure your tie was short and wide, because it was your status symbol.
Seriously, your tie was everything. You'd leave what was left of it hanging out of your jumper.
Your tie was your canvas and you filled it with an assortment of safety pins and badges.
But if you preferred the less preppy look they all went on your blazer with an undone tie.
Sometimes you rolled up your gigantic school shirt sleeves for that super indie look.
And you obviously rolled up your ridiculously long skirt.
If you could get away with it you'd beg your mum to let you wear your New Look elastic skirt.
You'd always try to cover up the hideousness of your uniform with a hoodie.
And push your thumbs through your school jumper.
Your headphones were always peeking out of your collar.
You had to have a belt that screamed "I'm an anarchist".
It was a requirement that your shoes were a classic '00s chunky heel.
And that you showed you were random and funky through your laces.
If you didn't have laces then neon socks were the only way anyone would know you were an individual.
Your neon shag-bands were essential accessories.
As well as your scoobies, which you painstakingly spent all night working on.
This of course was all just preparation for the very last day of school where you could properly violate your school uniform.
