Skinny Jeans

We’re all for combatting bullying, but this is extreme.

A North Carolina school district is considering banning skinny jeans and leggings in order to make “bigger girls” feel more comfortable. The New Hanover County School district shared their dress-code ideas, and many weren’t happy with their proposals.

In a document shared online, the school district discusses prohibiting students from wearing “excessively tight fitting pants unless covered by a top or dress to the appropriate length.” The proposal, named Policy 8520, now has its own hashtag for social media to sound off on.

The New Hanover County School district has thanked students for their feedback and intends to share it with the board before a final decision is made.
