Back To School Fashion For Guys

Most guys aren’t into following trends, but a little fashion know-how never hurt anybody. Here are a few basic ideas for looking put-together on your first day back to school.


Manbags/Murses/Messenger Bags

While there’s nothing like a solid backpack, an over-the-shoulder messenger bag offers a nice alternative. Try to find a basic color so the bag goes with most of your clothes. Neutrals like army green or chestnut brown are a good bet. Or throw out the rules and snag a bag in vibrant red or blue—that pop of color will get lots of attention.


Crew Neck Vs. V-neck

Every guy knows his t-shirt is his best friend. But a basic tee will work only if it fits right. Make sure you get the right size and decide if you prefer crewnecks or v-necks. If you’re on the skinny side, crewnecks are a good bet cause they can make your neck look thicker. On the other hand, if you’re a heavier guy, stick with v-necks—they can really open up the space around your face.


Hip Glasses

If you’re lucky enough to need glasses, try experimenting with different looks. Glasses can totally change your style so look for something that feels like you. Whether you like chunky plastic frames or almost-invisible glasses, just make sure you pick a look that works for your face shape. You can slim a round face with rectangular frames or guys with square faces can soften angles with round frames. If you have an oval-shaped face you can wear almost any kind of frame—just make sure your frames are in proportion to your face.


Colorful Shoes

Brightly-colored shoes are still hot. Look for high-tops in bold colors like red or purple or if you’re not afraid to stand out in the crowd, do like Kanye West and sport neon pinks and blues. Colorful kicks don’t need to be high-tops either—you can find brights in almost any kind of shoe. Try some baby blue loafers for comfort and style.

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
