Back to School Fashion for Guys

JCrew's updated Preppy StyleModern PrepCourtesy of JCrew
Heading out to go back-to-school shopping? Here are three hot trends for fall that will kick your look in gear and get you ready to make waves at school.

Back to the Future

You don’t have to look all the way back to the 1950’s to see varsity jackets, jeans and white tee shirts. This look is hot right now, too. Or hit the 1980’s look with bright (no, wait, make that BRIGHT!) colors in jeans, contrast striped tees (we’re talking bright blue and lime green or orange paired with anything), and even sneakers (or tennies, tennis shoes, or gym shoes, if you prefer) in bold colors like orange New Balance shoes or bright blue Nikes. Or borrow from the 1970’s to find slim fit colored corduroy jeans and vintage inspired super-soft t-shirts with sports or brand logos under a button-down plaid shirt, denim jacket or two-button wool blazer.

 

Played Down Prep

Button downs buttoned up all the way or buttoned down over a vintage tee, worn over brightly colored jeans or cuffed khakis personalize the preppy look and make it comfortable. Grab a light wool blazer instead of a denim jacket or sweatshirt to pull this look together.

One Direction's styleWhether or not you like their music, they have style that gets them noticedCourtesy of One Direction

Check out the look One Direction sports – some say they’re the boy band it’s ok for guys to like, but whether or not you’re into their music, their style has girls and guys taking notice. This is a great date look and a big mom-pleaser, for those of you looking to score respectability points.

Skate Park Style

You don’t have to lug around a long board or do ollies to sport the skater style. Chuck Taylor Converse high tops or low tops come in too many colors or patterns to count. Skate shoes from Vans and Keds are back, too, in crazy color combinations like orange and blue checks. Pair those hard-to-miss kicks with slouchy jeans, soft vintage tees, a knit beanie, and a zip up or pullover hoodie and you have yourself a LOOK for fall.

There's a rare disease which currently affects 80 individuals worldwide, called Progeria. A person who is born with this condition experiences rapid aging, and will live to be, on average, about 13 years old. ...how old are you? If you were born with this disease, how would you live differently? Are you older than 13? What would change in your life, if you knew you were living on borrowed time? Are you younger? How would you perceive the world differently, if you knew you only had a few years left? Life is the most precious gift a person can receive. Don't take yours for granted.

I've been through a heck of a lot too. I have severe health problems and there were so many times I have lain in a hospital bed thinking I was going to die. I deal with severe depression from that along with the matter of loneliness from not being able to leave the house a whole lot my whole life. I don't have any friends  or really anything to do. I almost - you know- did it once. But then after that I went through a chain of dark events ( that I would rather not say for the topic is too arguable on this place. However, in a Catholic way of speaking, I have met a group of Legion. :P ) That practically changed my mind around into a more depth view of life. We, as humans, take life too seriously. I mean it. Is your life really that bad? Really? Are you alive? Are you speaking to another human who might actually smile at you once in your life? Did you see that pretty butterfly that just went by? We are so used to seeing a better, pampered life that tv shows or someone we know has, and we get jealous. " My life is horrible". Oh really? Did you say hi to your dog today? He's happy to see you isn't he? Smell the rain coming? Doesn't it smell good? We fail to look at the small good things in life and concentrate on " Jim broke up with me. I'm never going to be happy again!" Well....maybe Jim wasn't the guy you are supposed to end up with. Ever think of that? Ever think " Well maybe there is an even better guy out there I am supposed to be with! I just have to try and find him!" Eh? I've also learned: Not everyone is going to like you. No matter how nice you are and how much you try to be friendly, Not everyone is going to like you. I just went through this a few days ago with someone on here. She didn't want to talk to me because I was friends with someone who does bad things. Now that is very stereotypical and not right. Just because she does bad things mean I do bad things too? No. It means I accept everyone. Does that mean I accept the bad things she does? NO. But does that mean I have to not like her because of the bad things she does? NO. I love the person, but not the actions, and it breaks my heart to see the person do these things but i still love them. Get it? It's like if your child does something bad. Does that mean you hate them forever? NO. I try to help people, and for some reason i am attracted to those who are wronged or in pain. Another thing, I love horror. Like a lot. I have it allll over my page. Sometimes that scares people and they might say to me " What do you want?" or " You scare me" before I even say hi. You know what else? There are SO many people here that have told me that I am the nicest person on here they have ever talked to. So, some more stereotypes for you. Main theme is, take a break ( seriously) stand outside or something and just look at the sky, breath in the air and watch that bird carry a worm to her nest. Don't judge others by passed on information. Life is good if you make it so.

I feel like I am getting an anxiety attack everytime someone tries to talk to me (i have not been diagnosed with social anxiety)! They don't know how bad it is. People say that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Well, suicide is the light at the end. I have attempted suicide twice but I always chicken out. I need someone to kill me. Please. You're really strong for getting through these suicide attempts thoughts you may be having, the proof is that you're alive right now - despite everything you're struggling with. If you're strong enough to have made it through life this far (even if things might not be enjoyable to get through day to day) you're strong enough to keep going and get through this. Trust me, anxiety isn't something you have to struggle with for the rest of your life, there are ways to cope, you just need to reach out to somebody (a teacher, parent, doctor, counsellor or trusted adult). Which of course will be the most difficult part, but you can do it, I believe in you. Suicide ends your chances of things ever getting better for you, and you deserve to live, and be happy. Suicide isn't selfish, because you're not thinking about how worthy you are of life. Allow yourself to be selfish in the sense of knowing that you deserve better than death.
