Any time of the year, shol students wear pleated mini-skirts with white, dark blue, or black knee-high socks. In anime school, girls wear really short skirts, but the majority of schools consider knee-high skirts acceptable.
Some fashionistas love to wear loose socks with mini-skirts to make their ankles look chubbyand often break rules by shortening their skirts themselves. Most students wear shorts under their skirts. Many Japanese schools have common dressing rooms for male and female students. That’s why girls put on their sports uniforms in advance, right under their school uniform.
