Dressin’ Up The Dress Code

The alarm clock goes off and you drag yourself out of bed to get dressed for the school day. You
slowly put on the CB appropriate clothes that you laid out the night before and look in the mirror.
You think to yourself, “I wish there was something more I could wear to dress up the dress code
without getting dress coded!”. Well, the Talon has some ideas for you!

From rockin’ socks to colorful bracelets, the CB community is full of creative ideas to help spiff
up the flexible yet sometimes tiresome dress code.

Claire Carlton (’17), told the Talon about how she mixes it up with the dress code with
her accessories,

“I like to sass up the hair a bit by adding a scrunchy”, she said with a little
spice. “I have a wide array of scrunchies, so I usually pick the one that will go with my mood and
outfit for the day”.

Also, students have been accessorizing with bracelets due to senior trendsetter Megan Walaitis
(’17).

“I was dragged into a craft store one day and saw beads, so I decided to make something
special for my friends”, she said with a smile. “Beaded bracelets are in now and they’re a fun to
accessorize the dress code”.

Claire’s idea of a scrunchy is a tasteful throwback to the ’90s that adds a vintage look to the
modern dress code. And Megan’s idea of personalized bracelets definitely adds to the CB
approved outfits. But what about the guys? Scrunchies and colorful bracelets may not be the go
to look. It’s may not so easy to put a little pizzazz into the dress code.

Nick Hilton (’17) taught us that guys can accessorize in different ways saying that “even though
there’s it much to accessorize with, you still gotta flaunt your style. Your belt game as to be on
fleek”.

“You can’t do whatever everyone else is doing. You have to be unique”, Nick explained about
his sense of style.

Accessorizing with flannels shirts and non CB or college sweatshirts are fashionable and
definitely dress up the dress code, but they can come with the consequence of a little yellow slip
of paper that everyone has come to hate.

Even though our CB dress code can seem tedious and sometimes boring, we can look to some
of these ideas to help us create a unique and stylish look for the everyday school day. Whether
it be snazzy belt or something to put in your hair, remember to be unique and be your own
trendsetter!
