The school uniform of girls attending private, usually religious schools was once meant to be the paragon of modesty and decorum. They were designed to ensure that every girl in the school looked the same, regardless of social status (although most girls in private schools were quite wealthy) and prevented school from becoming a fashion show. At the same time, they kept the girls well covered and dressed in what was deemed to be appropriate clothing. Watch video in link below

So how did the school girl costume go from modest to daring? How did it make the leap from an outfit meant to cover up to an outfit designed to titillate? Although the fascination with the school girl uniform started years before, we have Britney Spears to thank for making it widely popular. The video for her 1998 hit Baby One More Time featured Spears and backup dancers in revealing girl inspired costumes that had men around the world salivating and caused a storm of controversy.But Spears didn’t start the fire – she just took the torch and ran with it. There has always been something secretly sexy about a school girl costume. It’s the classic old story of innocence, youth and beauty combining to create something unintentionally attractive. Teenage girls on the cusp of adulthood, raging hormones, and of course a costume that just lends itself to sexy new versions – it was just a matter of time.
