Back to School Fashion for Guys

Back to school is around the corner, which means it’s time to invest in a new fall wardrobe. Fashion for guys this year is all about plaid, graphic tees and nautical style.

The Basics

Some fashions come and go, but the classics are here to stay. When buying back to school clothes, make sure you’re armed with the basics: neutral tees - in whites, greys, blacks and browns - slim (but not skinny) jeans, and a stylish blazer. On top, play with colors and patterns using graphic tees, stripes, plaid and this year’s step away from the norm - nautical (sailor style). This includes horizontal stripes, mainly in white, black, navy blue and grey.

Make a Good Impression

If you’re aiming for top grades this year, it’s important to dress the part. A put-together outfit will give your teacher a good impression. You can’t go wrong with a polo shirt in its many styles: the regular polo (or collared shirt), a polo oxford, or a polo sweater. If you’re not into collars, no worries! Layer your basic tees with a nice knit or cotton crew-neck or v-neck sweater.

No More Baggy Pants

This year, pant legs are narrower than the ugly baggy jeans that add bulk and sit about halfway down your boxer shorts. Fitted pants (and we’re not talking about tights here!) are more attractive and more professional.

Accessories

Accessories are just as important for guys as they are for girls. Matching your shoes with your belt will give you a complete look. Invest in a pair of black vans and you’ll have shoes for nearly every outfit. In winter, add a knit scarf for a pop of color.

First: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T KILL YOUSELF! When you get past this you'll be glad. Well, this is just my opinion, but I think you should first find someone, anyone, even if you don't trust them, if there're your parents talk to them about it. I bet a bunch of people have already told you this but there're right. Before you walk up to them, write down what you're going to say and then think of a few questions they might ask and write down the answers to them. Remember to tell them that it might take you a minute to think of an answer. Before you answer, think of the exact words you will say  before you say anything, and think in your mind about it. Think about wether it is a lie or not before you say it. If it gets out of you mouth before you realize it is a lie, don't be afraid to say so and just say the truth. Also, just try to find something you like to do that will take your mind off everything. If you really can't think of anything, try just practicing saying your feelings to yourself, or a pillow or something.  Hope this helps!

It's normal to feel jealousy, and it's not really too bad a thing unless you let it get to you and cause problems. I get jealous as hell but I try to avoid letting it affect the way I hold a conversation, for example.

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?
