Dubai: (ANI): The Saudi Arabian education directorate has decided to push for "stricter" and "more decent"' school uniforms for girls after it noticed tendencies among students for open collar designs and "inadequate" belts.

According to Al Sharq, the general education directorate in Makkah has written a note to schools and has stressed that girls must remain committed to wearing decent uniforms, and avoid designs meant for men's clothes, Gulf News reported.

Girls were issued a week's time to "rectify" their uniforms and those who faced financial difficulties should be given assistance to overcome the challenges.

Under the acceptable dress code, girl's uniforms should not have open front collars and zippers should only be on the back.

Besides this, wearing belts is banned at all times.

All schools have been directed to post acceptable designs on the school board to help the students make the right uniform choice. (ANI)
