2008 Summer Fashion Preview

Summer is fast approaching, so put away your jackets, umbrellas and rain boots and come check out the top teen fashion trends of the season!


Patterns, like florals, stars and ethnic prints, continue to be popular and can be seen on everything from tops and shorts to sundresses and bags. But, if patterns aren't your thing, then just reach for something that's really bright and colorful. After all, summer is the season for colors, so put away those dark clothes until the fall.

Pair your summer outfit with strappy gladiator sandals.


Just like with jeans, the high waist is in high demand for shorts! If you're not sure what to wear with a pair of high-waisted denim shorts, try tucking in a voluminous tank top so that it blouses out, making your waist look tiny! Tops with a looser fit are much more comfortable during the hot summer months than something that's tight and fitted anyway.


Ditch the flip flops in favor of gladiator sandals. They're the trendiest shoe of the summer and will make your outfit - even if it's just shorts and an old T-shirt - pop much more than any other shoe will. From ankle-length to knee-length straps, gladiator sandals come in all sorts of styles, but our fave is the one that buckles at the ankle.

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
