If you were wondering “oh no, not another Singapore school uniform related article”, stop wondering because today’s article is going to be about the weirdest school uniforms that ever existed in the world. Yes, not just Singapore. The whole damn world.
Christ’s Hospital School in West Sussex, United Kingdom
This uniform is so weird that it is bordering on being a costume. Sure, we can ignore the white neck bands but we sure as hell can’t ignore those bright yellow knee-high socks. And is that boy dressing a dress?
Brighton Secondary School in Adelaide, Australia
The Brighton Secondary School uniform is pretty much the Australian equivalent of the St. Margaret’s Secondary School uniform except that it is worse. Why? Just look at it for yourselves – that dull green colour with even duller green checks. The uniform on a whole looks exceptionally… shapeless, like a green sack full of flour.
James Gillespie’s in Edinburgh, Scotland
Although kilts are Scotland’s national dress, they are mostly only worn on special occasions. But the boys of James Gillespie’s liked kilts so much that they made an unanimous decision to make the kilt part of their school uniform. Their uniform pretty much shouts “look at me! I am Scottish!”
Norland Nanny School in Bath, United Kingdom
Looking to pursue a career in being a full-time nanny? Well, there is a school for that in the UK and the uniform is… really strange-looking. I mean, what’s with the gloves? Are they afraid that nobody will know that they are nannies in training?
Eton may be one of the world’s top private institutions but it doesn’t mean that they are also one of the top in terms of school uniform design. Seriously though, who wears a top hat and a tail coat to school on a daily basis? Eton.
Mooseheart High School Concert Band in Iowa, United States
Even uniforms from the 1910s cannot escape this list. The concert band members had to wear uniforms like these with puffy pants and a blazer with a fancy pattern down the chest that kind of looked like flowers… or chest hair from afar.
