2004 Back-to-School Fashions

The first day of school is the best time to dress to impress your new classmates. So even though you may not want to swap your sunglasses and flip flops for pens and binders, you can look forward to your trip back to the classroom by going back-to-school shopping! Find out what's in style for fall 2004 so you can head back to school sporting all the latest must-haves!

Wrap Yourself

The poncho is everywhere this season. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns, so you'll never get bored with its style! Plus, it'll keep you warm during the cool autumn months. Pull your poncho on over your favorite jeans and one of the many tanks that you've been wearing all summer. You can even jazz things up by clasping on a big pin with faux gems.

Plaids and Pleats

Plaid miniskirts continue to be all the rage this fall, with cool new details like double belts. Go for the sweet school girl style by wearing it with a knit sweater, or rock it with a graphic T-shirt, funky hat and cool boots. You can also accessorize your pleated denim mini by tying a long scarf around your waist and wearing it as a belt!

Fall Sneak Peek

Once the weather turns cooler, trade in your flip flops for old-school kicks like Pumas or vintage Chucks[kwlink]. These retro-style shoes are definitely cool for school. You can also step out in ballet flats, which will give you much-needed comfort as you stylishly walk to class!

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

    Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

    You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
