Classic Girl's Back to School Look for from Gymboree

Here are a few classic pieces from the girls school uniform collection that you can find in-stores or online at Gymboree.  When you combine all of these pieces together, they work for most school uniform dress policies.  Girls that are not required to wear uniform can still enjoy these items in the non-traditional uniform colors or by wearing them as separates with items from other collections.  Gymboree may not be the first retailer you think of when shopping for school uniforms, but they do stock the uniform collection year round.  The uniform collection is frequently on sale during the back to school shopping season and at several other points during the year.
Uniform Cardigan

The Uniform Cardigan is a must have.  If the school is air conditioned, these sweaters take off the chill in the early fall.  And they add a layer of warmth that can be worn over other items later in the season.  In the winter, they look adorable over a simple turtleneck.  It also pairs nicely over a jumper or the polo dress.  Shown here in navy, it is also available in white. My daughter always got great use of her white cardigans all summer long as she wore them over her brightly colored sundresses.

Uniform Skort



The Uniform Skort is another must have for any uniform girl.  The built in shorts underneath make it easy to play on the playground and sit modestly for circle time.  It is longer in length than the uniform skirt hitting above the knee. It is shown here in red, but of course, it is also available in navy.






I love the button-up  girls uniform shirt at the Gymboree, but all of those buttons can be a bit much for tiny fingers.  The Uniform Pique Polo Shirt is easy to pull over the head when getting dressed in the morning.  The collar, placket and detail on the shoulder of the sleeve make this top cute, stylish and simple.



Streamer Pony Holder


When my daughter was younger, I loved to shop at Gymboree for hair accessories for her.  Well, all of their accessories are awesome.  We still have a Streamer Hair Pony like this one that I purchased years ago.  It was her favorite hair tie and she wore it every PE day.  Super girly and cute.  It is hard to find hair accessories in colors to match school uniforms, so I always snatch these up during Back to School season.
