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.

Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
