North Carolina’s New Hanover County School system wants to ban students from wearing skinny jeans, or any type of tight-fitting clothing, in a newly proposed dress policy. But students don’t want to let go of their skinny attire. 

In addition to skinny jeans, wearing leggings and tight-fitting pants would also be considered a violation of the schools’ dress code (pdf) unless they were covered by a top or dress, which also would have to cover the student’s butt, according to the proposal.
