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.

Talk to your parents about it. Tell them you didn't like your Christmas gift, and don't let your brother boss you around. Your parents can, your brother can't. Your parents gave you life, sorry to tell you but they can do anything they want if it's legal. But your brother can't. Let your parents know that you shouldn't have gotten in trouble for the stuff he doesn't. Tell them he makes you feel really awful and you don't like it. If they're good people they'll understand.

I would stop being friends with her. I mean she should understand that it'd be mean to do that. It's hard to help your friend get through a breakup when you're dating the same person. Plus you don't even know if she was trying to break you guys up so she could be with him.

You want to know if he likes you or not? Just ask him. It's not as bad as people say-I mean, it's a question. It looks like he does, so he probably does. It's not that big of a deal.

Talk to your friend. Tell her that this is the first guy that's ever liked you but you don't want her to get mad at you for stealing him from her. But understand she likes him too so don't get mad if she doesn't want you dating him. Nicely decide which of you should get him instead of the other. Chances are she might be thinking the same thing.
