CATASAUQUA, Pa. -- Students in a Pennsylvania school district have gotten approval to remain fashion forward.

The Morning Call of Allentown reports that Catasauqua (cat-uh-SOCK'-wuh) Area School District approved a revised dress code this week. It allows students to wear so-called skinny jeans.

The tight-fitting jeans had been banned under an earlier dress code. But parents complained they were having a hard time finding jeans that wouldn't be banned under the district's definition.

The board also gave in to requests to back off a ban on hooded sweat shirts. Low-cut tops, leggings and ripped pants are still barred.
