WASHINGTON — The Broward County School District announced that it would be replacing its long-standing schoolgirl outfit with a more youthful look, including bright colors and a headband with a black, curly, star-shaped ribbon.

The district said Tuesday it has ordered more than 3,500 school-age students to get new school-themed tattoos to mark the change.

The school district said the schoolgirl outfits were meant to encourage students to embrace individuality and be more creative.

The schoolgirl costume had been in use for decades in Broward schools.

The new schoolgirl looks will be unveiled Wednesday and include an image of a flower, a flower that has a flower in its bud, an arrow pointing to the sun, and the school logo.

The district said its new school outfit will be a tribute to the students who were there for their teachers.
