New dress code makes students feel more comfortable on campus

The Turlock Unified School Board of Trustees approved an updated version of the district’s dress code at the Board meeting on Oct. 5, allowing students to wear spaghetti straps, crop tops, pajamas and hats to school.

While many students said they are happy to see the dress code changed to allow for more freedom in clothing choices, not all Board members supported the changes.

Board member Mary Jackson voted against the updated dress code.

During the Sept. 21 board meeting, Jackson expressed concern about standards for students being lowered.

“I’m not willing to lower the bar. I’m not comfortable with

Aspirational dressing is so last century. The Philadelphia Orchestra’s new dress code proves it.

The shift in fashion is complete.

We are officially a people who dress for the moment we are in. Our clothing reflects who we are now, not who we hope to become. And most importantly, we dress for our own comfort, not others’.

How do I know this to be true?

Because in what can only be described as the ultimate clutching-of-the-sartorial-pearls moment, the Philadelphia Orchestra began its new season at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall Tuesday night with its male musicians taking the stage sans white tie and tails.

Instead of the black tail coat, white shirt, white piqué

Afzal notes that Afghan dress varies from ethnicity to ethnicity, each with its own rich history.
