Walker’s has a flexible dress code and its guidelines leave plenty of room for improvisation and personal preference while maintaining a sense of appropriateness and personal dignity. "Class Dress" events require girls to wear tailored pants, shorts or a uniform skirt, and a solid collared shirt. Each student is also required to have "Vespers Dress" consisting of one gray skirt in one of three styles and a white, collared shirt, which is worn to certain events and banquets throughout the year. On occasion, students are invited to wear "Special Event Dress," which consists of dress slacks, skirts or dresses with dress shoes. There are also "Dress Down Days" throughout the year, when students can dress more casually.
Dress Code Guidelines
- Wear a solid-colored shirt with a collar. Small emblems, no larger than a quarter, are fine.
- Flip-flops are permitted — and popular! — until November 1 and after Spring Break. Otherwise, slip into any closed-toe footwear that’s clean and in good repair. Socks and tights need to be a solid color.
- Skirts (at least fingertip length please) allow many options. Choose from three styles — knife pleat, box pleat, or kilt — and seven colors: pink, blue, green, khaki, navy blue, dark gray and light gray. One gray skirt is required for special occasions.
- On chilly days, pull on a solid-colored crew neck, V-neck or a cardigan sweater, vest or fleece, or a solid-colored crew neck sweatshirt. No hoods please, and no writing or logos — except for Walker’s!
- On certain occasions, students may dress up in their spirit club colors — often in the craziest ways they can come up with — to show their enthusiasm and support. Suns wear yellow, red and orange, and Dials wear purple, blue and pink
- Tailored shorts may be worn until November 1 and after Spring Break, and tailored pants almost any time. They can be khaki, black, gray, navy blue or brown.
