We have been doing a bit of back to school shopping and I have to wonder if the buyers for the stores as well as the clothing companies have any clue about school dress codes? My DD is in middle school and the dress states all tops must have sleeves, no see through tops unless the top underneath matches the dress code, no tight pants, no jeans with tears or patches, etc... However, very few stores can accomodate these rules. The dresses are too short and flimsey, the tops are all sleeveless,e tc.. So, we have to buy little jackets and sweaters so she can wear the majority of her tops. yes, she will wear tshirts and polos, but not every day.
Can't a mom dream that one day the fashion industry will be in touch with dress codes? :-)
