Whilst many people thought that schools in big cities such as Beijing and Shanghai would easily win the contest, a high School in Xuchang city, Henan Province – Xuchang’s Third High School ( 河南许昌市第三高级中学 ) – turned out to be the winner for the most fashionable school uniform.

There are five pieces to this school uniform, which altogether costs 140 RMB (nearly 21 dollars). According to the statistics from Xuchang’s Third High School, more than 700 students out of 800 plus bought the uniform voluntarily.

To make the uniform fit perfectly, staff of Xuchang’s Third High School ( 许昌三高 ) literally measured every student who bought it. The media also seemed to appreciate this type of stylish school uniform, with many journalists coming to the school to interview the principals and students.

Netizens were amazed by the short skirt and black stockings that the girls were wearing in these photos. The female students in Xuchang’s Third High School claimed that wearing black stockings were actually their own ideas. Some girls even asked for shorter skirts.

The school uniform of Xuchang’s Third High School has become a hot topic since the beginning of September, repeatedly receiving compliments that it looks sophisticated, beautiful and modern, unlike most school uniforms in China. Although some netizens regarded it inappropriate for high school girls to wear such sexy school uniforms, most of the people online accepted it and even welcomed this kind of new trend in China. To some, wearing school uniforms like this even gives students encouragement to study.

Xuchang’s Third High School is a school focusing on art. “Seeing the colourful and fashionable clothes students wore on the ‘Drawing and Calligraphy Competition’, it inspired me to come up with the idea for this new type of school uniform. Hopefully most students will consider it stylish and buy it voluntarily,” said Cheng Jinfeng, the vice principal and the designer.

In most schools in China, students wear school uniforms that are either light or dark blue with plain design. Now in Xuchang, Henan Province, high school boys are wearing suit-like uniforms and striped ties for the very first time, considering most schoolboys in China usually wear sporty uniforms.

The type of school uniforms in Xuchang’s Third High School is similar to the popular and hilarious South Korean TV series “Delightful Girl Choon-Hyang” ( 쾌걸 춘향 , aka “Sassy Girl Chun Hyang”, first episode below for anyone who’s interested to check out). The series is about two high school students, where the initial inspiration of the school uniforms came from.
