I vividly recall the excitment I felt when the time came for me to graduate from being a Brownie with the Girl Scouts to becoming a Junior. Swapping my patch-covered brown vest for a fresh green sash alongside some of my best friends felt like a real accomplishment, something I’d truly earned for myself, and the fact that I had a fresh piece of clothing with which to show off my achievement just made it all the better. (Especially for a fashion-obsessed kid like me.)
So when I heard that the Girl Scouts were getting new uniforms, I was a little nervous to see how these beloved childhood pieces were changing. Turns out, I shouldn’t have been concerned at all—the new uniforms are incredibly cool. And, yes, they kept the vest and the sash.
