Congratulations to the kids and grown-ups who collaborated on this smokin' funky retro- yet contemporary new look for Hoboken High (and Junior High) school uniforms!
GA has never bought into the public school uniform concept; ask my friends on Kids First. But rules are rules and I've gotta say... I love these outfits! The colors! The combos! The cool simplicity! But best of all...
For those concerned about the stifling effect of conformity on a child's developing creativity and expression (me, me, me), Hoboken's answer is... accessories!
WOO HOO! Open your closets, boys and girls.
Being a monochromatic-dresser myself who loves to 'decorate' with accessories: bracelets, necklaces, scarves, belts, a little bling here and there... GA thinks this is a fabulous solution for kids who may feel like this policy will stifle their self-expression.
Also note the shoes on our models. If your kid goes for conservative pumps or lace-up boots, your kid can put his/her stamp of 'ME' on the Hoboken 'template'. And you know how kids love their shoes and sneakers. The model below is my daughter expressing her style while drawing a horse.

So, GA is very proud of our kids- they look great and are ready to take on the 3 R's in their new unif... shall we drop that word and just call them 'fashions'?
Additional thanks to Theresa Minutillo, Kids First founder, former BoE Trustee and entrepreneur with a successful image consulting business, who helped the kids assemble their fabulous looks, (also found on the District website's Look Book).
GA wishes ALL of Hoboken's school kids: public, charter and private, a great, productive school year.
Now get off the computer and hit the books!
