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.

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
