Student should wear anything they want to school.

Why? because by doing this, you have the chance of developing the creativity of future young designers. Who knows that one of your students may have the talent to be one, but by forcing them to use uniforms, they now have boundaries when it comes to the daily outfit they wear.

There are a lot of body shapes in the world, for instance, the hourglass, pear, apple and etc. Uniforms are usually factory made into the average body shape, but what if your body shape is different from others? You will not have the confidence to go to school and make friends, because you think you look ugly and indecent. When you have insecurities and you have to wear these in-matching clothes, you will not be able to focus on your studies, because you are always busy fixing your clothes.

Some people just need to express themselves, if they don't they might worry the whole day. Some people likes to use bright colors or unique outfits, they are very expressive people. They will think that they look horrible in these uniform. For instance, it you're on a diet, all you will be thinking is food and how hungry you are, this is the same as the uniforms.

This is a typical "one size fits all" argument. As matter of fact, dress code varies in different schools, so it is largely up to choice. If you don't like uniform, go to a school where you don't need to wear a uniform, or move to another school district that suits you for good. You go to a school, you accept its rules. It's a package deal. If you go to a school that requires a uniform, you gotta make a compromise for your choice.

Here we're not talking about adults. We're talking about STUDENTS whose body and mind are both developing. They're not "people" yet. No matter what talents they possess or how they see themselves in the future, they must grow up first, and a part of being a grownup is to think more about the others and less about oneself. At this point, wearing a uniform certainly helps. Not only does it help a teenager fit in, but also the achievement of self-identity in such a certain period of life when you're desperately trying to position yourself. It saves you a lot of time and effort to do the same by yourself.

A proof of that is the success of private education. It is commonly known that most private schools have their distinctive uniforms while most public schools don't, yet "strangely", children of the elites who are sent to private schools and "regulated" under the dress code turn out to be more unique and expressive later in life because their school uniform speaks in volume of their social status and family background.

And nevertheless, don't forget that what you're going to school for. You're there to learn, not to express. If you've learnt nothing, what do you have to express anyway?
