I don't like it.

I went to Catholic High School and wore a uniform like this everyday. I get the plaid skirt but when you wear it all together it looks pathetic. Especially when you're over 18.

I think wearing head to toe school garb would look a bit ridiculous unless you happen to be a Harajuku girl or a stripper, but incorporating a pleated skirt or a fitter blazer in an outfit would look totally cute.

I Love It But It Depends How You Wear It. The Way You Wear it Can Determine How Well It Looks. But Definetly Not Those Shoes In Those Photos Above!

I like it quite a bit, and wear it every once in a while in the winter time, but it's not my fave. And it's at its best on GG.

I think it could be cute (the featured picture looks good) but I really can't pull it off. Plus, I too spent my high school years in the classic Catholic school girl uniform.

I'm in the age range for it and I do love it but I can't pull it off.

i love the look, but i dont think its an everday kinda look. Its cute for fall on occasion and its def cute on models or photoshoots.

I love it and always have. Maybe that has a lot to do with the fact I never had a school uniform.. I'll disagree with others and say I don't think it's necessarily tacky to wear this look (or something inspired by it) once you're over school-girl age. Like anything, you've got to wear it the right way for it to work.

No thank you...

No thanks - I wore this style in the 8th grade. Late twenties now and could not pull it off and WOULD NOT wear it.

I don't know many schools that had cute uniforms, they were usually a bit dowdy on purpose. Oh, and it begins to look fetish-y over the age of 20.

I do a modified version of this - big Balenciaga black satchel, cardigan, collared shirt, pleated skirt, black tights and Mary Janes. I look good in this sort of thing.

I think this look is a lot less cute when you spent 13 years of your life in Catholic school and HAD to wear it.

I can see how a schoolgirl inspired look would be cute but seeing as I attended a private, Catholic school from 1st to 12th grades (and my high school was all girls, nonetheless!), I had to wear that "look" as my uniform evvveryday. So, while other people might think it's adorable, I've had too much of it for me. Also, I'd feel like a Halloween costume wearing it now that I'm in college because of all of the jokes I've heard guys make!

Never liked it. It's not my style at all.

I think that as a woman you can take pieces of the look and add it to your outfit but I don't think doing the full on look would be age appropriate.

I absolutely love it and think it's just adorable, but being over 18 I'm far too old to wear it myself. I think the repulsive school uniform I had to wear for six years left me some kind of school girl fetish, and while I think the kilt and white shirt take on it is too obvious and strictly for actual school girls, I love school girl inspired details on more wearable clothes, like a black tea dress with white collars or whatever. That i would wear.
