scouting..

summer fashion scoutholiday i-D magazine

I’m off doing some summer scouting for a project. Why don’t girl scout’s dress like this anymore? What happened to the cute uniforms? I never was a girl scout when I was younger, or a brownie either, but I always loved the uniforms. Now they just wear sweat pants or something awful like that. What happened! Why is this country turning more and more things into what I refer to as “the sweatpants of_____(fill in the blank with anything that make’s it overly easy to be a slob)” I think they need to take some tips from my friend Phyllis and her troop and step it up a bit. Nature girls don’t have to look like they just crawled out of the back woods.

    Maybe, we dont where uniforms because the clothes are supposed to be wearable and cmfy when being in the nature? I understand that it is cute from an vintage kind of view:) But wearing a skirt while trekking, climbing, sailing, canoeing? Sometimes more variables than fashion matters…

    My uniforms when I was a girl scout where hideous-made completely of polyester. The photo above is stunning as both a uniform and great fall outfit.

    i agree with you, to a certain point. i am actually on the look out for new nice scout uniforms, our scout association is about to buy new scout uniforms, and now i want there to be a boy model and a girl model, until now we have only had one model, and the girls look hideous wearing those. so i´m looking for uniforms that are both practical and look nice. but that seem to be impossible i have not seen any nice looking uniforms yet, except for some vintage ones. it is pretty sad
