20 School Uniforms From Around The World

As summer comes to a close, kids are gearing up for fall. But more importantly, they're getting ready for the first day of school.

For many students, this means fittings for new school uniforms or dusting off old ones that spent the summer in the closet. Soon kids everywhere will be back to wearing knee-length skirts and clip-on ties.

But even though these fancy duds promote uniformity, they range in styles and colors across the globe. Some even allow for a little individual expression.

Check out what children in 20 countries around the world will be wearing on their first day of school.
