How to Choose School Uniforms
We like school uniforms because they make school clothes shopping a lot easier. There are some standard guidelines with not a huge amount of choice available, so it cuts down on the stress of finding things your kids like and you find appropriate! It can also be a big money saver, especially when Walmart school uniforms are so reasonably priced, even when it isn't sale season! Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for school uniforms.
Comfort is Key
Your kids will be wearing their school uniforms more than any other clothes, so you want them to be comfortable! Plus, uncomfortable clothing can be distracting and take away from the learning process. Have your child try on the sizes and styles to make sure they fit well AND make sure the material feels good. Watch for itchy fabrics or tags that can rub on skin. Tagless options are great!
You can save money and your kids can have better looking uniforms if they are durable. You might have to spend a bit more for more durable clothing with things like pants with double-layered knees and double-stitched seams, but they will last longer and can save you money in the long run. You can also plan ahead and treat the fabrics with waterproofing spray to help protect it from spills and stains.
Plan for Seasons
Depending on the climate in your area, you may need to buy uniform pieces for both hot and cold days. If your kids are allowed to wear shorts, they are a blessing on hot days and if girls are allowed to wear pants they can keep them much warmer in the winter. Sweaters or school-approved sweatshirts are also helpful on cold days.
Choose the Right Fabrics
You want your school uniforms to be as easy to care for as possible. Ironing on a school day is NOT fun! Look for fabrics that are easy to wash and wrinkle-resistant. For rambunctious or messy kids, dark-colored shirts will hide small stains or spills much better than white shirts and stay looking new longer.
