Japanese School Uniform

1.4.15


When you think of the Japanese school uniform, the first thing that comes to mind may be your typical sailor uniform. But there is actually so much more to the Japanese school uniform world  There are all different styles of uniforms, some with longer or shorter skirts, some very military uniform-inspired, others more European or suit-like, many blue or white, others even green or red! It is rather common to have a sailor uniform during middle school, but to have a more suit-like uniform during high school.


The gakuran (学ラン) or the tsume-eri (詰襟) are the uniforms for many middle school and high school  in Japan . The color is normally black, but some schools use navy and dark blue as well.


The top has a standing collar buttoning down from top-to-bottom . Buttons are usually decorated with the school emblem to show respect to the school. 


The gakuran is derived from French Army uniforms. The term is a combination of gaku (学) meaning "study" or "student", and ran (らん or 蘭) meaning the Netherlands or, historically in Japan , the West in general; thus, gakuran translates as "Western student (uniform)". Such clothing was also worn by school children in South Korea and pre-1949 China.


One important aspect of the school uniform is that it changes with the season. The students have summer and winter versions of their uniform in order to cope with changing weather (of which Japan has plenty of ). Many students opt to add a sweater to their summer uniforms when it’s still cold outside.


As has been mentioned before, there are many common high school uniform styles. It is also relatively common for young Japanese girls to try their best to enter the school with the cutest uniform in their area . Lastly, You can get a decent cosplay version of a school uniform cheap, but a real school uniform will actually cost you a insanely high price.
