Don’t get me wrong, I love that Kurt’s in a new school and doesn’t have to deal with bullying anymore. But am I the only one who wishes he didn’t wear a uniform? I miss his flamboyantly whimsical outfits of yore.

There really isn’t much you can do with a uniform (trust me, I struggled with this for years!). You can a) add a scarf in your school colors,

(Anyone else wish Kurt would break the mold and wear a differently colored scarf? Perhaps one with polka dots?)

 

b) ditch the blazer and go casual with a cardigan instead. (Please note: Kurt’s ‘sexy’ face. How adorable is he?)

c) wear the uniform as is and perform Animal.

We need to see Blaine in an outfit that doesn’t include Dalton Academy’s colors. In any case, he looks fantastic in his black coat.

I do love Kurt’s loungewear, however. The cut-outs add interest to an otherwise plain sweater. Avant-garde and completely on trend, so Kurt.

Emma, who almost never has a bad outfit, is gorgeous in a raspberry cardigan (with a bee brooch! adorable!) and darker raspberry pencil skirt. The combination wouldn’t work on anyone else, but it’s perfect for Emma. Honestly, she defines cute.

It’s the usual for Emma this episode. I love the bows, the sailboats, the cobalt blue, the polka dots, the brooches. She excels at demure, ladylike outfits that are somehow not too grandmotherly.

Then again, everyone has a bad wardrobe day (you know, the kind where your favourite top is in the wash, nothing fits, everything’s sprawled around the room). Emma’s comes in the form of the outfit she chose for the girls to wear for their performance of “Afternoon Delight”. The high-necked, puffed-sleeve, ruffled blue top is bad enough. But she pairs it with a maxi floral skirt that looks more like a bedspread print. (I didn’t even include Quinn and Rachel’s exact outfits because I feared for your poor eyes.)

Mercedes is kind of like Santana in that she can wear the most ridiculous pieces (bright blue skinny jeans, checkered hat, and shiny Nikes) and still pull it off. I’m not loving the multiple bangles and cutoff denim jacket, but I do like the fact her laces match her shirt.

The wardrobe department must have its own trailer just for Mike’s shoes…he has a cool new pair each week! The rest of his outfit is typical; skinny jeans and a black sweater.

We didn’t see much of Tina, but she was sporting bright blue streaks and this lovely velvet blazer…I wonder if she borrowed it from Santana?

There’s an awful lot of denim in this episode. I’m not sure if I’m appalled or pleasantly surprised. Quinn’s version is a dark, well-constructed, denim jacket. Nothing special here.

Quinn’s ensembles have three qualities: demure, feminine, and, well, boring. She likes dresses and cardigans and oddly enough, combat boots (or something of the like). The print is rather interesting, though. And her hair! The girl has hair like no other.

Again, gorgeous hair. The patchwork dress looks like something she made while away at camp, and she’s wearing a black shrug, of course.

I may not approve of Finn/Quinn, but the polka dot dress? Summery and cute and so Quinn.
