THE GIRL SCOUTS GET A MAKEOVER

The Girl Scouts have had a lot of changes to their style over the years, and 2020 comes with another wardrobe change!

“Students from the Fashion Institute of Technology helped create a collection that’s both functional and stylish”. It’s also perfect for the generation of young women who have been growing up with technology at their fingertips! The new design includes “modernized sashes with hidden smartphone pockets and cargo skirts made from stretchier, comfier fabrics, among other reinvented staples.” Read more here!
I reached out to Sally Eagan, Director of Entrepreneurial Experience at Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Badgerland, to see if our local Girl Scouts would see the change in uniforms! Sally said, “Eventually. If they currently have a uniform, they do not need to change it out to the new one. Only new Girl Scouts or Girl Scouts moving to a new level would buy these.”
Members can pre-order the new uniforms beginning September 8th and there’s even a discount!
