Dress code

Hi

We will be moving from America to Switzerland. I was wondering what the dress code is in Swiss schools? Especially for summers. Are short shorts and cropped tops ok?

Short shorts? No.
Cropped top... depends on how cropped.

Re: Dress code

Really! No short shorts in summer!? Just surprised because at her current school they are. Hardly cropped. I was just deciding on what to bring

Did you look at the temperatures in Switzerland?

And welcome to Switzerland, a very different country

Re: Dress code

Yes, shorts here, too. Just not short shorts.

The kind of clothing shown if you Google images of "short shorts" would be unacceptable at most Swiss schools.

They can pretty much wear what they like but if you have a teen, you'll probably find they want to fall in line with the fashions and trends of classmates.

I've seen short shorts in summer but not much in the way of cropped tops. Guess it's not a "thing" here.


EDIT - just seen your "cropped tops" link. Here, most of them are just "tops".

Re: Dress code

I’m a teacher, and the crop top would be refused where I work. The tummy must be covered. The shorts, I don’t know. Limit.

Re: Dress code

As with so many things, it varies from canton to canton.

In the French speaking part of Switzerland, it is normal for young people to dress in very casual gear, such as flared trousers, tank tops - even blue jeans!

In the Italian speaking part, the young people dress very smartly, with natty winkle-picker shoes in patent leather and suchlike.

In the German speaking part, there is a wide variety of dress-codes depending on the kind of school you attend. Students of practical crafts, for example, may be required to wear something suitable for their position, such as this:



Others may dress more casually, thus:



or thus:



In Schwyz, the dress code is very formal:



Whereas in Aargau, the only requirement is that one wears white socks.

I hope this goes some way to answering your very ferdinand questions.

Re: Dress code

Neither of those would fly, where I am. No way.

Btw, if you are not sure of what to bring for summer (which is months away), hotpants nor cropped tops aren't expensive here and will be on sale (you posted this year fashion so it definitely will be) before it gets warm.
