Girl Scout Uniforms Get 2020 Makeover


For the first time in two decades, Girl Scout uniforms are getting a modern update.

Good Morning America reported that the Girl Scouts partnered up with the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) to create a fashionable new look.

The makeover includes a new sash, vest, and 18 mix-and-match pieces suitable for girls in grades six to 12.

Other options include cotton-blend and crewneck T-shirts, full-zip hoodies, drawstring joggers, pocketed spandex leggings, cargo pants, a soft knit skater dress, and a light-washed denim jacket with sizes available up to 3XL. All the items range in price from $10 to $49.

Parents of the Girl Scouts can purchase these new uniforms at Girl Scout Shop.

Class of FIT 2020 students Nidhi Bhasin, a Girl Scout alum from New Jersey, Jenny Feng, and Melissa Posner were chosen to make the uniforms.

"Girl Scouts really helped strengthen my self-confidence and encouraged me to pursue my interests," Bhasin said in a statement. "With this collection, our shared goal was to not only design trendy attire but also make sure that girls would feel inspired, proud and powerful while wearing each piece. Today's Girl Scouts are the next generation of leaders, so we needed to make sure they dress the part so they can continue to take on the world!"

This is the first time in the 20 years that student designers have designed the traditional uniforms.
