Get the Look: sk8r Girl/Boy

Mar 17, 2012

Sk8r style is about hanging loose and expressing your individuality. It’s about being sporty but not going varsity and wearing a warm-up suit. It’s about comfort and personal style first. It’s not about name brands, expensive logos or cookie-cutter-same-as-the-kid-next-to-you style.

Whether you’re a boy or a girl, sk8r style is pretty much the same, just with lighter colors and more feminine themes for the girls.

Pants

Skinny jeans are way in this spring for guys and girls, especially in bright colors or checkers, and these are the perfect embodiment of sk8r style since tight pants are easy to skate in.

Shoes

Normal shoes don’t grip well on skateboards, so sk8rs go for the brands that grip: eS, Etnies, Fallen, Vans, DC, and World Industries. If you can’t find a pair you like, get a plain pair, decorate them with a sharpie, and add some colorful laces.

Shirts

Band shirts are hot if they’re really bands you like. Target, [kwlink]26660]Old Navy[/kwlink] and Wal*Mart are good sources for inexpensive ones. Or go off the beaten path and check out the Threadless or Zazzle websites for video gamer, cartoon, TV, or smart humor themes.

Over a t-shirt, throw on a soft hoodie or plaid shirt. Keep it open and loose. In cooler weather, add a soft oversized sweater.

Accessories

Skip the jewelry– bangles and necklaces get in the way of skating, so real skaters just don’t do it. Accessorize with a knit beanie, if you can pull off the look, or a messenger bag. Add cool stickers from your favorite bands or stores to your folders, messenger bag or skateboard if you have one.

Add color to your look, too. True style is wearing what you like and what you look good in, not just dressing a part. Even skaters wear rainbow high-tops and have favorite colors that aren’t earth tones!

Pick up a skateboard and give it a try. If you’re attracted to the look and the lifestyle, you’ll probably love the freedom and excitement of learning to skate!

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
