Gakuran and seifuku

Konichiwa minnaaaaaa…


now i’ll post about japanese high school uniform. For boys called by gakuran (学らん?) and for girls called it by seifuku (制服).




The Gakuran usualy used by midle school and high school student. Normally black but there are some schools that choose their own color for their gakuran.

Buttons Usualy decorated with their school logo or emblem to show respect for their school. There is urban "tradition" for boys to give the 2nd button to someone that he love. but it isn't must.


In traditional. gakuran used along with a cap but it less used in modern time.

for common school boys may wear trousers about the hips, omit ties, or keep their shirts unbuttoned.


The Seifuku  (セーラー服, sērā-fuku?) is a common style of uniform worn by female middle school and high school students, and occasionally, elementary school students.

Much like the male uniform, the gakuran, the sailor outfit bears a similarity to various military styled navall uniforms. The uniform generally consists of a blouse attached with a sailor-style collar and a pleated skirt. There are seasonal variations for summer and winter: sleeve length and fabric are adjusted accordingly. A ribbon is tied in the front and laced through a loop attached to the blouse. Several variations on the ribbon include nneckties, bolo ties, neckerchiefs, and bows. Common colors are navy blue, white, grey, light green and black.

Shoes, socks, and other accessories are sometimes included as part of the uniform. These socks are typically navy or white. The shoes are typically brown or black penny loafers. Although not part of the prescribed uniform, alternate forms of legwear (such as loose socks, knee-length stockings, or similar) are also commonly matched by more fashionable girls with their sailor outfits.
