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.

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
