Japanese students' uniforms usually attract attention from all over the world, especially their short skirts. Some have noted that even in Japan's intense winter, schoolgirls continue to wear their skirts without protecting their legs from the cold. This raises the question of why Japanese students wear short skirts in winter.
Some may wonder how Japanese schools allow these short skirts to be worn in both summer and winter. Remember that schools have rules and most students shorten their skirts outside school. We have already written several articles about Japanese students and we will leave them below:

Some Japanese women claim that the length of the skirt is a fashion statement, a way of expressing their individuality, a form of rebellion. We must remember that most teenagers also want to attract boys' attention. Things are not like the anime that took advantage of skirts and giant breasts to do fanservice.
Japanese students wear short skirts in winter
When it comes to fashion, Japanese women are willing to stand there shivering in the freezing cold. Some Japanese schools do not allow schoolgirls to wear pants, they need to wear socks and their skirts are long enough to protect them from the cold (they like to roll up their skirts to keep them short).
The vast majority of Japanese students do not adhere to this fashion of wearing short skirts in winter. Most of the time they wear long socks that are very warm and protect them from the cold. Others use thermal pants and products to warm their feet and other parts. They can protect themselves with blazers and other accessories and take them off when they arrive at school.
Some schools and public places have heaters, which makes it easier for schoolgirls to wear short skirts in winter no matter where they are. Some have a blanket to put on their legs, as schools are not well heated. Each school has its own rules and each student decides how he wants to spend his day at school.
Some really prefer to spend the whole day saying “samui, samui” than to wrap up properly. Only we must consider that many Japanese students are prepared for the cold of winter. Just because we see pictures on the internet of girls with their legs out in the snow does not mean it is extremely common.
Cold helps you lose weight more than exercise
A study by endocrinologist Paul Lee states that staying 15 minutes shivering is as effective as an hour of physical exercise. Perhaps this is one of the great secrets of Japanese thinness and beauty.
It is believed that when exposed to the cold, fat and muscle communicate through hormones and turn white fat into brown. Thus increasing the expenditure of energy to generate heat, lose weight and burn calories. Cold is also great for keeping your skin youthful.
These were some of the reasons why Japanese students wore short skirts during the winter in Japan. What do you think about all of this? Do you approve of the idea? We look forward to seeing your comment and sharing.
