Uniform Guide

The Girl Scout uniform sums up the Girl Scout identity with a single outfit. Your Girl Scout can proudly show off her newfound skills through her patches, reflect on her years of progress as she counts her gold membership stars, and connect with the longer tradition of Girl Scout sisterhood with the World Trefoil pin. Check out our shops to find uniforms, badges, awards, and more.

General Guidelines

  • Sashes are worn from the right shoulder to the left hip.
  • The insignia tab is worn on the left chest, over the heart.
  • All unofficial awards go on the back of the uniform, including cookie, camp, and fun patches.
  • For formal events, sashes, vests, and tunics are worn with white shirts and khaki pants or skirts.
  • If you run out of space on the front of your uniform, you may place badges and awards on the back.

Uniform Guides for Each Grade-Level

Girl Scout Daisy Uniform

The Daisy Scout uniform is a great way to introduce your girl to the basics of what it means to be a Girl Scout. Troop numerals, the Girl Scout patch, her council’s patch, and, of course, her first membership stars will all be items she will carry forward with her as she progresses through Girl Scouts. Daisies get to add their Petal and Promise badges for Daisy specific milestones and experiences. 

In addition to the standard white and blue option, Daisies may choose to wear a full uniform ensemble, which includes a beanie and leggings or a skirt.

Girl Scout Brownie Uniform

Your Girl Scout has leveled up, and so does her uniform. While some parts of her Daisy uniform carry over to her new Brownie uniform, new additions include the Journey Summit Award pins and a new Brownie Bridge Award to show that although her Daisy years are behind her, all the skills she learned are still in her back pocket.

In addition to the standard white and khaki option, Brownies may choose to wear a full uniform ensemble, which includes a Brownie shirt, beanie, tie, skort, and socks or tights.

Girl Scout Junior Uniform

Boasting the iconic Girl Scout green, the Junior uniform gives your Girl Scout plenty of room for the new pins and badges she’ll earn with her Junior awards and Journeys. Being a Junior also means that your girl starts planning for her Bronze Award. The accompanying bronze-colored pin goes right next to the World Trefoil and carries over to her future uniforms, just like the experience of planning for a larger-scale service project.

The Cadette khaki uniform is the official uniform for her remaining years as a girl Girl Scout.

Girl Scout Senior Uniform

On top of the Senior badges, your Senior’s uniform starts sporting pins that show that she’s training to be a Counselor and Girl Scout Volunteer. Now as one of the more experienced fish in the pond, your Girl Scout has new opportunities to share her expertise with younger girls and be a mentor at camps and events.  

(You might start noticing less and less open space your Girl Scout’s vest or sash: a sure sign that she’s making headway in her Girl Scout journey.)

Girl Scout Adult Uniform

Of course, the Girl Scout uniform experience isn’t limited to girls who are in Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts alums who are still involved in Girl Scouts or adult volunteers can now rock brand-new adult vests with their own insignia. The vests are now available in stores and online

If an adult has earned more than one special recognition (Appreciation Pin, Thanks Badge, or Honor Pin), the last one received is generally the one worn.

Adult members’ uniforms include wearing the official pins and awards with navy blue business attire. Women complete their uniform by wearing an official Girl Scout scarf, and men wear a Girl Scout tie. 

Position Pins

Adult Girl Scout members wear position pins to indicate their present position within the organization. Find these pins and those for national-level positions in our online shop.
