The Girl Scouts announced today a redesign of the uniform that includes classic elements along with “modern, fashionable twists to ensure that every girl can express her unique style.”
The Girl Scouts collaborated with the Fashion Institute of Technology for the new wardrobe. The uniform includes a new vest and sash as well as “an official apparel collection of 18 new interchangeable pieces for girls in grades 6–12.
In the past the Girl Scouts have collaborated with other designers including “Mainbocher in the 1950s, Halston in the 1970s, Bill Blass in the 1980s, and Diane von Furstenberg earlier this year,” the Girl Scouts said in a news release.
The Girl Scouts said the new apparel was created by Fashion Institute of Technology class of 2020 students Nidhi Bhasin, Jenny Feng and Melissa Posner.
The new line includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, jogging pants, spandex leggings with pockets, cargo pants, a knit skater dress and a denim jacket. Prices range from $10 to $49 and sizes up to 3XL are available.
“The redesigned official uniform includes a new khaki utility vest ($34) and pocket sash ($14) option made exclusively for Girl Scouts in sixth grade through high school,” the Girl Scouts said.
“The new vest has a cinched waist and epaulet shoulder while also featuring two functional front pockets. The sash, in four-way stretch woven twill, also has built-in hidden cellphone pockets for easy storage.
Girl Scouts can now incorporate the new uniforms and apparel into their daily wardrobes, whether they’re going to school, exploring the outdoors, selling cookies, or attending a troop meeting or more formal occasion.”
