How Many Pieces in a School Uniform Wardrobe?

By: Sarah Carlye

You got your student’s school uniform, but aren’t sure that you have enough pieces. Having too many pieces is expensive and some uniform pieces may go unworn, but having too few pieces and it means lots of loads of laundry and rushing off to replace a shirt if ruined by a stain. There are some factors to consider that will help decide how many pieces a uniform wardrobe will need to be optimal.


To decide how many pieces you need for a school uniform wardrobe, decide how often you do laundry. If you do laundry once a week you will want to make sure that you have enough pieces to last between laundry days. If you do laundry twice a week then you can purchase less school uniform pieces. When considering the laundry schedule, keep in mind the color that is washed. If you do laundry twice a week, but whites, darks, or lights are only done once a week, that can affect if you will have clean school uniform pieces all week, depending on the colors of the uniform.


Light colored clothes show dirt more easily and will need to be changed more often. Dark colored clothes don’t show dirt as easily and may be able to be worn more than once depending on the activities of the student, the weather (high heat contributes to more sweating), and if the student has body odor problems.


Many students may not want to wear their shirts more than one time, but many will wear their pants or skirts more than once. If the budget was tight at the beginning of school and low quality school uniforms were purchased, be prepared that most students will need their uniforms replaced mid-school year. Have extra school uniforms available when the old uniform becomes worn. If you know your student is exceptionally hard on a school uniform, it is wise to buy extra pieces and have them waiting and ready for the inevitable, a school uniform that is so worn out or damaged that it can no longer be worn to school.


When the budget is limited, there are fewer options for the number of pieces for a school uniform wardrobe. In this case it may be necessary to increase the number of times per week that laundry is done. Choosing quality school uniforms that are reasonably priced will assure that the uniform will be able to hold up to the extra washings.

A good start is 2-3 pants (or skirts) and 3-4 tops. With these recommendations, it will be necessary to do laundry a couple times a week. Ideally, there should be one pair of pants and one shirt that is set aside as a spare. To make sure there is a school uniform that is in good shape and without damage or stains, a spare uniform can be set aside so that it is only worn on special occasions at school.
