When I was growing up, my parents and grandparents always dressed up when they went to work, and since school was considered my job, I dressed up too. Clad in my turtleneck, sweaters, plaid skirts, tie-back button-down shirts, and jeans I sat in my classes, with an alert mind and stylish attire.
At my day job, as a Special Education Instructional Assistant, for LAUSD I’ve become perplexed by the students I work with who wear flannel pajamas to school instead of appropriate school attire that’s just as casual and comfortable. I can understand the dislike for dress codes, and stiff uniforms, but can’t a happy medium, be reached by, at least, looking at alternative forms of a leisurewear in solid colors they can easily be paired with a coat, jacket, and sneakers?
While looking for a pajama set, I could also wear outside, I found a beautiful ultra-luxe one by “Ekouaer” on Amazon.com for $24.99. Available in black, gray, navy blue, and wine red and made out of 65% polyester, 30% rayon, and 5% spandex I’m sure today’s students wore some thing as well-coordinated as this they’d get less flack by their teachers and feel much more prepared to learn and excel academically because while this set is just as comfortable as baggy flannels its appearance is less controversial and more acceptable.
