AURORA, Colo. – The unofficial fashion show that often plays out in the halls of high schools will be muted this year at one Aurora school.

Students returning to classes at Aurora Central High School next week will be under a stricter dress code, which school officials hope will promote school spirit and create a better learning environment.

Students selecting their back to school outfits will be limited to only a few colors. White, black or dark green are the only options for shirts. Also, no logos larger than two inches can be displayed.

The type of pants students will be allowed to wear to school will also be restricted. The school will require students to wear black khaki pants or blue jeans at the waist with no visible holes. Leggings, yoga pants, sweat pants, pajamas or athletic shorts will not be allowed.

And students thinking about throwing on a cap before heading to school in the morning will need to rethink that wardrobe choice. The school is also banning hats and beanies, but Hijabs will be excluded from the new policy.

The school posted the following images on its website as examples of the new dress code.
