I got a request on how to style your uniform to different styles: preppy, classy, sporty, etc.! I think it's a great idea: having a uniforn is matching everyone: so, use the things you can to show off your true style! First off, look at this tip I wrote a while back on how to look fabulous even with a uniform:
