2002 Back-to-School Fashions

2002 Back-to-School Fashions - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

It's just about September and that means it's time for back-to-school shopping to begin! Take a look at what fall fashions and clothes are hot in 2002.

You've got all your binders, pencils and loose-leaf paper ready for your big return to school but do you know what you're gonna wear? Before you arrive in your summer uniform of shorts and flip-flops, why not take a look at what's going to be hot, hot, hot this fall?

Glam Girl

If you want to make a glam girl impression this fall, then you better think about stocking up on some denim. Whether it's lace-up jeans, a cute denim mini or a stylin' jean top, it'll be a piece you're glad you picked up. Denim is super versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down, so don't be shy to mix and match your wardrobe.

Athletic Chic

Velour jogging suits have never been so cool. Once a staple for the retired man in Palm Springs, superstars like J. Lo and Madonna have revived this comfy outfit. And even though J. Lo dons her stilettos every time she slips into her sweats, you might want to stick to some funky platform runners.

It's All About The Accessories

Belts are back in a huge way. Match them with a long skirt or a pair of cords. The chunkier the belt you can find, the better. And don't be shy to add some turquoise necklaces, bracelets or rings to your ensemble. It's the perfect thing to give your look a little extra hippie-oomph!

Back To School Boys

Boys can look forward to heading back to school in style (and comfort,) this fall too. Look to grab a new pair of baggy jeans, a comfy hooded sweatshirt and some cool, new T-shirts. Look for those T's that have some cool, fun sayings on them or look for a place that will print custom sayings on your shirts. You'll have all the girls dying to read your fall motto.

1 I'm glad that everyone is ready for a change of pace in fashion this year. And all of us that have moms who liked the 80's era, we don't have to spend any cash on clothes. You can just have your mom shrink those peasant tops. I'm glad because I've been wearing stripes for years. I'm glad I don't have to buy anything!

1 I love velour jogging suits. They're simple and sweet. I have at least three pairs.

    EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
