Japanese high school sailor uniform set (OS-501)
designed by OANH OANH
The sailor uniform is a common style of uniform worn by female middle school students, traditionally by high school students, and occasionally, elementary school students. It was modeled after the uniform used by the British Royal Navy at the time, which Lee had experienced as an exchange student in the United Kingdom.
Much like the male uniform, the sailor outfits bears a similarity to various military styled naval uniforms. The uniform generally consists of a blouse attached with a sailor-style collar and a pleated skirt. There are seasonal variations for summer and winter: sleeve length and fabric are adjusted accordingly. A ribbon is tied in the front and laced through a loop attached to the blouse. Several variations on the ribbon include neckties,bolo ties, neckerchiefs, and bows. Common colors are navy blue, white, grey, light green and black.
These socks are typically navy or white. The shoes are typically brown or black penny loafers. Although not part of the prescribed uniform, alternate forms of legwear (such as loose socks, knee-length stockings, or similar) are also commonly matched by more fashionable girls with their sailor outfits.
The sailor uniform today is generally associated with junior high schools. A majority of (though by no means all) high schools having changed to more western style plaid skirts or blazers. A large part of the motivation for this change was as a response to the fetishisation of the sailor outfits as well as the desire of modern high school students to differentiate themselves in a more grown up way from junior high students.
