Dark Lord is a middle grade book where the characters spend a lot of time in school uniforms. Even so, their personalities shine through. So here is how I think Sooz and Sal shine through even with their uniform constraints.
Dirk doesn't know what a goth is, so when he first sees Sooz, he thinks she is a vampire. She wears chains with runes, black nail polish, heavy eyeliner, black boots, and red lipstick (like blood). I'm kind of in love with this outfit and almost wish I could wear a uniform. Almost.
As always, I included a stupidly expensive piece of jewelry in the collection. Polyvore makes me feel sad that I can't buy bracelets that cost more than my car. I know I am ridiculous.
Sal is the sports nut. He's a popular kid, so I think he will have a very well put together uniform, but I also think he will never be caught dead in anything but sneakers. I also can't imagine him with a back pack instead of a sports bag or going anywhere without his cleats. Kid is obsessed. It's cool.
