I have two kids who dress within the dress code, but they definitely don't look like little girls.

But...have y'all gone shopping for girl clothes lately? It's all skinny jeans and slinky looking tops.

I'll admit the only place I see clothes for girls is at Target and even then it's only in passing, but I think the stuff they have out is appropriate.

I have cousins who are in 10th, 8th, and 5th grades. They all dress appropriately. Not sure where they shop though.

I do see a lot of girls dressed inappropriately for their ages when I'm out and about. High heels don't bother me, it's the short skirts, skin tight clothing, low cut shirts, etc...

Today it was 64 F in December, so naturally everyone was wearing more spring type clothing. However, these mini skirts that the girls wear....sheesh. The hem literally stops right where their cheeks meet their legs. I am constantly doing a little wiggle motion, silently alerting them to "pull it down"!

As a mother of a little girl, it is hard to find clothes that cover and are modest. For some reason the people that make jeans for little girls thinks they need to show their tushy.

I found this out when I went shopping at Christmas time. I had to buy clothes for a 9 year old girl that my community club was sponsoring for thie holidays. I had to look in 3 stores to find something modest, especially since I didn't even know the girl so it had to be something appropriate. I found a black sparkly sweatshirt that cost a lot but it was better than buying something slinky!

Now that this has been bumped, just wanted to add....

On the COLDEST day of the year, I wrote up a girl for wearing a too short skirt and a tank top with lacy bra straps hanging out.

And about five other girls were wearing similar short skirts.

This is the style they all wear. Is this popular anywhere else?

Those skirts pass the fingertip rule.

When the girls walk, the skirts slowly inch upwards. We tell them to pull it down because, you're right, it is SUPPOSED to be past fingertip.

I also think the style is just too sexy for a 13 year old. Not to mention it's completely inappropriate when it's 14 degrees outside.

Wouldn't fly at my school - skirts and short have to hit the middle of the back of the knee.
