Interesting uniforms!
By today's standards, I'm guessing Yes they are!...:giggle:...the dress code back in those days was very stringent and strict....Mini=skirts were the rage back then too....but we were not allowed to wear them, everything at knee length, not above...

Same here. Girls couldn't wear slacks, and no one could wear jeans or shorts. No t-shirts allowed for anyone. I attended four different public high schools on both coasts, and I had gym uniforms for each of them. In two schools we wore blouses and shorts, and in two others we wore one-piece snap-up-the-front uniforms, bermuda shorts length. Lovely. :giggle:

I can relate. Most of the girls at my schools wore their hair parted on the side or middle. I had a low widow's peak so I always wore bangs.

LOL...I was a hell-raiser in school, Caz...dyed my hair Green...:lol:...and got caught smoking in the Girl Scout room with a friend named Shirley,,,(it was her idea!)....We didn't even know how to inhale....:giggle:...but wasn't sent home...was "campused" for more than a month and had to buff the halls and clean the bathrooms...

The rules were so strict...just had a hard time obeying them...as at home during the summer, things were much different, even wore mini-skirts...

RR...you were HOT!!!! HAHA

My yearbooks are somewhere in my house but no clue where. I was on the swimming, diving, softball and volleyball teams. By the time I was in high school there was really no dress code that I can remember. P.E. uniforms were super ugly. Burgundy with a white stripe, step into and snap at the shoulders. I guess they were practical for gymnastics though.

I want to hear what you gals wore for swimming in P.E.? We had black one piece swimsuits issued by the school. When you came out from the pool, you stripped down and they handed you a little tiny towel. BUT...OMG...hubby just told me they had to swim naked his freshmen and sophomore year. Junior, senior year the school finally got bathing suits. WOW times have changed. Can you imagine schools doing that now. My kids would have died.
