Using recycled plastic bottles to make the Eco-fabric for the blazers is a fantastic way to demonstrate to children how products can go on to become something entirely different through the process of recycling. Students are proud to wear their uniforms.

4 School Uniform Trends You Need to Know About

We’ve been kitting out kids in school uniform for over 37 years, but this summer is the first time you can buy our uniform direct from our sparkly new website. Want to know what we predict as being our bestsellers and the new school uniform trends? Read on for our expert guide to what’s hot in school uniform circles and guess what… they’re all eco-friendly!

Slim Fit Trousers

In school uniform it’s not always possible to follow fashion trends however we do try to stay in line with what people want. This is how the slim and ultra slim leg trouser came about. As trend for slim fit has grown in popularity, so has pupils desire for even slimmer styles. It makes for a modern and fresh look that is also pleasing for pupils who wish to express their own style and individuality.

The Shorts

School Uniform TrendsOur product development team are always looking to respond to wider market forces when carrying out their research and development. The hot summer we experienced last year saw evidence of climate change. Because of this we are predicting popularity of senior school shorts, like our girls City Shorts and our Boys Senior Short to rise, along with the temperatures. Both short styles feature a fixed waistband and slim fit which will give pupils a cooler choice in the warmer months that does not compromise on sophistication.

The Zippy

School Uniform TrendsThe recent pandemic saw the rise of ‘lounge wear’ and sweats quickly became the go to garments, selling out across websites. Whilst people are once again digging their jeans out the wardrobe, there is however no denying that the sweat trend is here to stay. Therefore, we’ve been busy predicting how this might transcend into the traditional school uniform wardrobe. And our response is the ‘Zippy’, a full Zip baseball style sweatshirt. This full front fastening sweatshirt is a practical over-layer making it the perfect solution for those ‘in between seasons’ months. The ribbed collar, cuff and hem keep the cold out and the warmth in. Whilst the side pockets keep hands warm.

And just like ‘lounge wear’ grew in popularity, so has ‘conscious shopping’. For those parents who are looking to make more considered purchases and reduce their environmental impact, the Zippy is a must. Manufactured with durable, recycled fabric and designed with a modern unisex style, it can easily be passed down between siblings. Making the ‘Zippy’ the new ‘basic’ amongst sweatshirts.

Available to buy in Autumn 2020.
